I'd say Bruce too but I don't see how either this or Fifth's watch can be 1938. I think the ad is '41. In 1938 the Commodore was round.

according to records the ad is 1941, the subject Watch definately 1936 as the 1940's brought an influx of 'White Metal backs'.

The examples noted have Gold Casebacks ala 1930's.

'BRUCE', or engraved version of the 'DEAN'.

Agreed, Bruce it is and as Fifth stated the Dean is the non-engraved version.
