This one looks like it would be right at home in the Ambassador line, but I cannot find it in any ads. May be an Unknown model; will see if anyone else is able to find a match.

I'm at a loss on this one as well. Unknown for me for now.

I currently have a watch that has the exact case and dial face as yours.  Sorry I don’t have a photo of it yet because it is currently waiting in line for a restoration.  I can tell you that the watch was purchased in 1953 and has the L3 code on the case back.  I too have been trying to figure out what model it is. My mother purchased it as a gift for my Dad shortly before they were married.  As soon as I get it back I will post a picture.  Unfortunately that could be a year or more from now.

This is the closest ad I can find.   It is from a 1960 Houston Jewelers catalog.  I think the picture shows some shadowing.  Putting it out there in case this leads us to getting closer to ID'ing this watch.
