Other Details


NOTES:  I originally believed this model to be the Spencer, as the rose gold case, lug style, and dial style are all a match for that watch.  However, this example has a gold back, as opposed to stainless, and the sides of the case are straight as opposed to slightly curved.  The Spencer case appears to have a slight bow out on the sides.  The 1943 ad below shows this style of President with the exploding dial.  Later ads make it clear that this model was offered in rose gold.
