Yes, it does a little.

Nothing can be seen of anything in the pics provided, I'm sorry. 

Case serial will be the 7-digit one inside of the case back.

Two-tone colour? Not a Senator. Can't really tell what it is.

Yeah.... Senators came in two tone.  I have all three.  White, gold, and a combonation.  I believe we've got ad's floating around saying 2 toned as well.  Ahhh... found one from 1936.

Looks like a Senator to me without the original bracelet shown above probably a 1934 version though from the case number.

Does look like the Senator in the ad above.  Note that the case serial number in root record is six digits and from outside case back.  There should be another seven digit case serial number on the inside case back- that would be the case serial number from which we could get the age of production for the case/watch.

Great ad find Jerin.

I never realised the Senator came in all three, like the President of the time.

Senator three ticks.

George, it would be nice to get a little closer and clearer on the photos. I'm thinking Senator too, just so hard to tell.....
