Manitowoc Herald Times January 20, 1941
Dude no, it's a WESTFIELD!!!!
December 1941 ad.
Confirms the PILOT, same ad, different paper, Oakland Tribune.
November 1940 ad.
Lone Eagle "A", Ambassador "A", American Eagle "A". Triple A!
March 1946 ad.
American Clipper and Victoria.
Here is the earliest known ad for a Beau Brummel yet, from December 1947. Looks like it could be solid gold at that price!

Going Commando? :^D
Olean Times-Herald, Friday, May 31, 1940
WOW.... now this is cool....
The 1940 Senator.... and Senator "O"... cause of the bracelet I'm assuming.

The dials are different too, check out the font in both watches.
Hagerstown Morning Herald December 7 1945
Hamilton Daily News Journal May 14 1943
"Miss Air Warden"
- Sad it's not a clearer ad.. but the original also shows a Blackhawk... Alden.. Arnold.. matching the correct timeframe.
We got a couple of Miss Air Wardens now, good to have it confirmed bro!
October 1943 ad. Pretty cool "bombs away!".
confirms the MEDICO. ( but have they confused the Squadron for a President? I think so!)
Here is a novel approach to the ads.
Undated but probably early 1940's Billboard ad, depicting the Lieutenant and Patricia.
Look at that clock and drool away, Bob Bruno!
Outstanding sign......wonder if it would fit in my lounge room.
That clock (OK, one JUST like it) sold this week for almost $1700 USD. How sweet it is.........
Some 1939/40 ads for the REVERE. From Lisa at Watchophilia.

Hey I can't member everything! Haha...
Blytheville Courier News December 11 1949
"Groom" and "American Clipper" (and yet ANOTHER NAME) for this watch... wow.
The Groom is the Playboy?
The 1948 Playboy settled down and became a Groom in 1949 :)
Tres droll, Billy!
Yeah I dunno... here's a Playboy ad I found as well:
New Castle News November 12 1948
Alton Evening Telegraph November 26 1948
Might as well put these together, Captain
San Mateo Times October 27, 1949
Yeah... it's not so greata clarity but I don't recall that we have a late 40's Banker noted as of yet do we? Honestly can't remember.. maybe we do. Haha..
Remind me to tell you my "San Mateo Bridge" story sometime......
Alton Evening Telegraph December 13, 1948
His Excellency "YY"
hmmm, bloody good question!
Any chance if a high res version so we can see the dial. Certainly has the look of a Watertite and others, but Bobbee raises an interesting point.
Not, but still Bulovas in ad.
Price is a giveaway.
Nearly every jeweler had a cheap waterproof for sale, Jerin has probably seen hundreds of ads like this, where they place them next to a well-known brand, trying to sucker the buyer into thinking they are getting a bargain.
Generic Chronograph for me until we see a better advert. It certainly could be a Medico as its the only model we have seen as a single push button chrono with center sweep hand.
I have a one button chrono Bulova.
