Looks like there's two ads for this model.  One Bobbee found from 1937:

Another Jerin found from same year but apparently a different publication or different ad (although it sure looks like Jerin's ad could be a snippet of Bobbee's ad above). 

I think we have three or four examples of watches ID'ed as Farragut, and they all have 7 jewel movements vs. the advertised 15 jewels.

I was also expecting to see some markings on the inside case back of subject watch.
