Nice ad match and I really like this model.  Looks like a close band match as well.

Good ad match, love the Deco inspired dial on this one.

1952 Ambassador "E" it is.

Sorry for the resolution of the movement picture. The movement is stamped L2. Is there a way to edit the pictures once the watch has been submitted?
