I'm good with 21st Century or Century 21.  I'd probably go two ticks tentative.

Nice watch jabs, condition looks quite nice.

Panel - I have to ask....The ad is in Spanish but the watch names are "Bulova" English aren't they? Shouldn't this watch be aptly named "Siglo 21"

I'll 3 tick it either way ( Siglo 21 or Century 21)

Valerie in Spanish is Valerie, Marquise is Marquise!

Siglo 21 or Ivanhoe

I get Geoff's point...or at least I'm thinking...  What if the "Siglo 21" was the model name for this watch as sold/advertised in forgien market, and it has a different model name for POS in USA?  ...and we just don't have that USA ad yet.  The ad we do have names it "Siglo 21", so by retaining/using that name, we are consistent with how we use advertised model names for all our other watch ID's/examples.

The ad says Siglo 21 and I agree with Will's comment to keep it named as such until another ad can prove it otherwise with a US ad.

In this ad it appears to be a translated name of 21st Century, as the entire ad is in Spanish except for the other three names, which do not translate well, are already Spanish appropriate, or do not need translating '23' (according to a native Spanish speaking acquaintance). We don't know for certain if it is translated or properly named by Bulova, so to be consistent with naming according to the ads, I'm fine with Siglo 21.

I'm Ok with that thought as well so how shall we proceed with this ID? Take the ad at face value or go with the translation? I'm good either way the panal agrees on.
