Two ticks tentative, although now I'm hard pressed not to go with three ticks- since it sure looks like the watch in the ad above, and the ads states charcoal dial/ yellow gold model available.  Don't know why I had one tick before, nothing has changed except my vote :)

I checked the 1961 Bulova price lists, and it shows the two watches by unique model number above.  We know the case/dial color match the ad pic and discription (for charcoal/yellow gold).

I say Geoff's watch is the 1959 President "F".  

Anyone esle agree?
