Additional Information: 

Just got this one.  From studying the ads, it appears to be a "Beacon".  Case and mvmt would date it to 1942.  The darker looking 7 and 8 hour markers are an effect of the photo lighting.  They actually look like all the others.  I'm pretty sure the hands are not correct.  The watch appears in an ad in your database.  I think it's the last ad in the top row, on page 2 of the 1940s ads.
