Nice score Gary!
I wonder if you would like to know the sales name of this watch?

Thanks Barney! Got this one at a antique show.

Yes I think this is Curvex Convoy if not mistaken.

Yes, I fully agree with your ID: the Curvex Convoy it is. Introduced 1941 (you are showing the first ad which I would know of) and has been available until 1945. Nost ads show the arabic numeral dial, but the later ones also the roman numeral dial.
