white Ambassador...  anything on the inside case back?  ...and curious... does it have the small markings seen on Plains case here.  There's ads with hashmark and numeral dials.  1935 ad below.

So since this is 1935 watch, no "issues" with the 15jewel vs 17 jewel Ambassador ads of 1936.  Now a 1937 ad shows 17 jewels too.  Is the idea this was 15 jewel Ambassador and in 1936 we have two jewel counts available....then in 1937 it's only advertised as 17 jewel.  What a mess :)
