I'm good with Round the World.  Mystery solved.
At least one of the ads state two-tone. ...and the double-rows of engraving....great ads and great watches.  Lisa just got one of these watches too, but she couldn't wait until she processed her new watch before sendind us the ads!

Here's an ad (albeit without a graphic) for the "Round the World" watch.  Dated August 26, 1931, from the Spokane Daily Chronicle.  Love the two-tone discription wording...."white and sungold"
