This is another one that confounds me.  You've got the. . .

Chief
Clinton
Knickerbocker
Comptroller

 

Sill trying to figure out what's what.  How did you ID this one as the Chief?

Only way you can ID the difference between them is the year made.  They're all the same watch just named differently as per year.

I saw this one as well...

1948 ad renames it the 'CHIEF', movement was an update to the 1943 'COMPTROLLER' in that Year and the strap.

'COMPTROLLER' states GF Case - 'CHIEF' shown is RGP stamped A9, matching the movement.

* Would be nice to see a verbal description for the 'CHIEF' as the database ad appears to show Black Hands and Black printed numerals (?) and interesting to compare the other models mentioned details.
