Nearest one I could find is the "EDWIN" in this 1929 ad, but it lacks the engraving top and bottom of bezel.

I have seen this one some where in the ads while looking for something else. It will turn up soon. Unknown for now.

Beautiful Unknown. 
I thought there was a very similar watch in the database, but it may not have been an acutal record. Maybe it was just an example entered in the discusson comments of anthoer watch record.  Somewhere on site, we have a very similar watch, and some discussion relating to the watch...or we use to.
EDIT:  I'm seeing two Edwin ads on site, 1928 (blurry) and 1929, but no indication that the Edwin was two-tone gold.  Is there another ad suggesting the Edwin has these yellow-gold verticals on bezel?

Anyone notice that the engraving on the top/bottom of bezel does not match that on the L/R of the yellow gold inlays? As if it was a later addition to an EDWIN case.
