Gary,

 

That's a rather CONFUSING grouping of models and crystals, for sure!

Evening Star, Kingswood, Nugent, Treasurer, Wembley   CMX343-1, 2, 2A, 2F   RMS140-45   CMX2228 192   HMC223/5C, 5F

 

Academy Award P, Ardsley, Evening Star, Kingswood, Nugent, Treasurer, Wembley       RMS140-45   CMX2228, A, B, C  192    HMC223/5, 5C, 5F, 5FT

 

Treasurer   CMX343-1, 2A, 2F   RMS140-45   CMX2228 192   HMC223/5F

 

The "Treasure" is slightly LONGER, however... (Also see Shawn's commentary, regarding that model.)

Maybe it's the pic or maybe my eyes but the "V" on the dial almost looks like a W??

Nice watch.

 Quad angle pointed crystal. Always distorts the dial details in photos

We have the crystal specs William (Scott) posted above:
Academy Award P, Ardsley, Evening Star, Kingswood, Nugent, Treasurer, Wembley   RMS140-45 CMX2228, A, B, C  192  HMC223/5, 5C, 5F, 5FT

There's this 1953 ad, also linked in this 1951 Ardsley record, ID'ed as such w/ three ticks from four panel members. There is a couple other Ardsley ID's confirmed in the database. Another 1951 here. Looks like subject watch is an Ardsley and the ID slipped through the cracks.
