This watch is very similar to another watch being ID'ed now.  A 1956 black-dialed example.  Information and decissions from one record should come into play in the nameing of the other.

Here's a snippet from the Bulova Matt ads from 1955 showing the Senator "A" (and B). Click snippet for full ad.  The differences between variants A, B, C, and D are laid out nicely in the link above.

Senator "A" from me.  The "difference" between A, B, C, D variants does not have to include mount- it can be based on case design, which are not confused with other ads on site.
