looks very close to Minute Man to me too.  Case serial number suggests 1939 w/ a 1938 movement.

Thanks Fifth.  Great link to older post.  Foreshadows the evolution and utility of the current star rating system and panel too.  I say two stars for tentative ID based on everything....

Saw some activity on another Watch that is very similar to mine, as this one was not fully confirmed. Bumping it up to possibly add light for you guys on the matter.

With the new ad that Fifth produced, the "Marshall" would be my call.

Manufacture Date should be 1939 based on Case Serial Number.
