Three ads, all from 1936. The unengraved Commander is from November, the two Hudson ads are from October, but are from different newspapers.
The difference seems to be the band.
These ads have been posted on Will's unengraved 1937 Commander, but it does not come up in the "recent comments" queue.
New Lone Eagle model found, from the Oakland Tribune, November 1933.
I know it looks like the engraved Trident, but the Trident ads are un-engraved.
Also, Will has another, seperate ad from another paper that seems to back this up, and I hope he will post it here soon.

Sometimes the advertisers get things wrong. This could have happened in the unengraved "Trident-like" Lone Eagle ad in previous comment.
Here's a December 1, 1931 ad snippet from the Reading Eagle Newspaper.
It looks like the have a "Sky King" graphic titled "Lone Eagle", yet the text below it goes on to discribe "the Bostonian".
Similar issues w/ graphic for the Sky King to the right, but at least it doesn't go on to name it a 3rd model in the discriptive text.
The company running the ad is Kays Jewelers- apparently a well established store. You may be able to see the full newspaper ad by clicking on the graphic- if that function works.
I'm certain that this happened more often than not. However I don't think it's made a big impact on any of our ID's. Furthermore, I doubt Mr Bulova would much have cared, as long as people hurried into Kay Jewelers to buy a new Bulova. For those of you not in the states, Kay is still in business, they have store all across the US and are know for their advertising slogan "Every kiss begins with Kay". (dang, now I'm going to have that tune rolling around in my head for three hours.....)
