Michael, I wonder about the Broadcaster ID, did you have a supporting advert?

I'm not possitive but i believe it was another site.

On the site it is a unknow but states this exactly:  The only listing in G-S Crystal Catalog No 52 for the crystal that fits this watch is assigned to the " Broadcaster C "

Yes. 

I'm not 100% but I believe I saw it some where else and it was labeled Broadcaster.

Good looking watch, I see similar lug styles on other watches of this time period. We have been open to go tentative on model names based on a crystal before, so I don't see why this could not be a tentative Broadcaster. I think more is needed to prove a variant though.
