Looks like a Viking.

Nice ID. The Cambridge is similar but the lugs have a square cut to them...these lugs are smooth and seem to match the Viking advert.

Tentative Viking for me.

I can go with that Viking ID too. It just seems like I've seen this watch before though......Cadet - ish in a way. Love the scroll sides on the lugs, I think that nails the ID down. This would be our first Viking I think.

I agree Geoff, there are a number very similar models in shape but the lugs seem to be the telling factor here and are distinctly different from the rest.

Viking from me. You probably saw one of these recently on the bay for sale

I'm good with Viking.  Nice ad find.  Our first Viking! Cool.

I think that's five panel votes for Viking.  Any other members have a different take on proposed ID?  It's only been about a day since this watch was entered, so not rushing ya' all.

For just a little more evidence, I supplied Dennis' crystal and it was id'd for the Viking.
