I have been cross referencing Price Sheets with model names that did not show up in the search box.  Found this name in the 1954 price sheet then confirmed it with the following ad.

Ad confirming the model name from the 1954 Sales Book. No picture but we at least know it is 17J with a fancy case and dial.  I have my suspicions on a watch it might be in the unknowns but until a picture confirms this is all we have to go on.

Confirmed 1955 Bulova Providence is a valid new name for the database.  Found confirmation in the 1955-57 Line Book BAWD0127 page 17 of 40.

Here is an ad for a new model name 1957 Bulova Aqua Jet.   Not sure if the watch shown in the ad is a Hayward or a Aqua Jet.  The Crystal book I have lists the following watch details.

Interesting 1952 ad showing two gift sets with two new model names.

1952 Bulova Enchantress

1952 Bulova Guardian

The Guardian appears to be an Arnold but we have no Arnolds past 1951 in the DB.  So it appears the Arnold name may have changed to Guardian in 1952

Here is an interesting ad.   This shows a 1952 Bulova Nugent.    Now this appears to be the same style as the Arnold but the database only has models and ads prior to 1950 for the Arnold.  I am wondering if in 1951 this was renamed the Nugent and remained so in early 1952 before the more rectangular Nugent model came out later that year.

I just noticed my prior ad for the gift set above that shows the same watch as the Guardian in 1951.   I wonder if this was the Arnold thru 1950, Guardian 1951 (gift sets) and in 1952 Nugent before it was replaced by the new Nugent later that fall.

I submit that this advert is a misprint and that the watch is not a Nugent but most likely an Arnold after all
