I'd agree this is the Senator 'B' from 1959. Looks to be in nice condition.

Yes, the photo's do not do it justice.  Nice and bright, and runs very well......looks and runs like new!

Yes took a peek at the line book 1958-1959_LineBook_BAWD0136 page 21 and it does match a Senator "B"

Does everyone mean 1959???  Watch is fully dated 1959 and the reference material seems to be from 59....

Somehow 1953 crept into peoples comments....

It's called follow the leader instead of going to the top of the page. I am guilty as well and have edited my initial identification post Sorry about that :o)
