From Bobbee  The Corsicana Sun, Texas. December 1936.
This VASSAR looks alot different than the enameled version of the late 1920's.  It actaully looks like the white-dialed verison of the black dailed c1936 Virginia.
Also Phantom without the numbered dial.

Turned to greyscale, stretched just the right vertical bezel, then did a shadow highlight thingie.  Any more and I'd be modeling the error in the original ad  LOL

Could someone please point out where the above ad states 'two-tone President'.

?

In reply to by FifthAvenueRes…

My apologies, I just thought that with the bezel uprights and horizontals looking darker they were yellow gold, and the lighter stepped sides were white gold. As this model came in a "two-tone" case, I assumed this was one. 

With a matching band too, if you look closely it too has "light and dark" toning.

Proof it came in the "two-tone" case.
