Is this a two-tone with white around bezel and yellow case?  I think it is.  Nice watch. 
1931 Unknown....but I'm checking recent ads in 1930's decases thread.

Yes we have already established and had a number of discussions over the slight differences in the advert and those that match it perfectly and those that are missing the top and bottom bezel patterns. However we had (I thought we had) come to the consensus that this subject watch and those with the same case were also part of the Sky King model family.

Yea I think we decided - or some of us decided- we would ID as Sky King (series) even with the differences.
I'd only go two ticks for tentative, as it could be something else......
