1957 Ad sure looks like this beauty.  I like subject band much better.

The 10K vs 14K RGP is notable, but I'm still looking through ads for a better match.

LOL, I like the bit about the 'unbreakable mainspring'. I purchased this beauty with a broken one from the bay for only $12.00! Replaced it and now she's keeping wonderful time.

It's the matching band that made me buy it!

There's probably a variant for it but for now it gets the generic ID.
