Here is the earliest known ad for a Beau Brummel yet, from December 1947. Looks like it could be solid gold at that price!

 1945 ad.

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!

That clock (OK, one JUST like it) sold this week for almost $1700 USD. How sweet it is.........

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.
