Interstring model name not in the drop down.   1930 Pringne or is it a Princine.  Probably a misprint.

Here is what appears to be a new year for the Jefferson model.   Found this is an 1930 Indy newspaper.   The Indianapolis News (Indianapolis, Indiana) · 21 Feb 1930, Fri.  A first I thought this was just a regular President but when you look at the blow up and contrast adjusted ad the engraving looks very different.

Interesting ad for a 1930 Bulova Air King.  Could this be an unengraved version of the Sky King.  The ad states its a two tone.

Here's a Bulova care card from what I'm guesiing is the 40's:

 

It's interesting to note that they recommend cleaning and oiling once a year.

I found this reference to an award given that is called a Bulova Sky Line.   I found four or five articles mentioning it.  Not sure it if is a real model or a mistake of the Sky King.   I thought I would put it out there just in case in comes up.

[quote=plainsmen]Does that bottom vertical men's watch say "Royal Master"?[/quote]. Yes several of these have Canadian names of the American version.  I think the royal master is a treasurer. There's also a Canadian airman.

The Daily Oklahoman (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma) · 1 May 1936

Interesting 1936 ad showing the "Wandering President" from prior years as a 1936 Flying Clipper.  The name Flying Clipper appears in the model name list and I can't find any corresponding ads or documentation on this name.  There is one watch from 1936 listed as 1936 President but no corresponding ads confirming President name in 1936.  I am wondering if the following watch was renamed in 1936 to Flying Clipper to honor the 1935 introduction of the landmark Pan-Am Clipper aircraft (see ad) and should be reviewed for a possible name change based on this ad.  The clippers were the largest airliners when introduced in 1936 by Pan Am airlines.

There has been some discussion on the Clayton and Edison models.  This ad lists these as Westfield models.  Not sure but hope this helps.
