The photo from the original listing looks like a square shield. M Holben sold it, he listed it as a 1931. Even if it is a 1931, it would not be an LE.

So I think we have a general consensus that it is a 'Charles'

hard to see much with the dust cover in the way. Super looking watch, Charles from me.

With the movement dating to 1931 and case 1932, are we assuming a movement swap in a Charles case- based on jewel count diff btwn watch and ad-  Or we are thinking Charles based on case w/o regard to jewel count discrepancy? 
Rephrase: Are we ID'ing the case here?  I'm cool with that.
