Attached to the top Sutton ad above was a watch called the Gedney, but is known on this site as the

AMBASSADOR/EVERETT!

After more searching, I came across several more naming it the Gedney, in four seperate States in the US.

Maryland advert.

   

     Oklahoma advert.

 

      Pennsylvania advert.

 

 

    So, along with the Texas advert that has been snipped, but I still have the original pdf file for, that is four ads in four states, with a couple more in the same states.

        What is going to happen now? We have THREE different ID's for this watch!

 

  Just to make it interesting, I found this 1959 ad too.

Another ad, this time a Bulova advert not a jewelers, naming this the Gedney.

No date, but the Berkshire with pitched Dauphine hands and Lady Berkshire and the American Girl would put this ad at around 1953-54.

1956 and 1955 ads for the Engineer.

 

   Here is an unusual thing.

Does anyone remember Jerin's Boxed set? Well here it is, 1952 ad.

If anyone wants the full pdf page which is too big for me to upload here, it has the mens and ladies sets. three-quarter page ad. PM me.

       You all get one guess at who said: "please don't try to pass this set off as genuine Bulova, Plainsmen, it's obviously not" here in this thread: http://www.mybulova.com/node/2693

I'll give you a clue- Frank Lloyd Wright. HaHaHa!

There's that good old Lady Berkshire again. Now that's a lot of ladies watches. Same we can't find these ads in better detail. So much information is lost and is a real shame.
