Hi

I Have near enough the exact same model as this apart from the Lugs, which  are more rounded in a fancier horn design.

Looking up the models I note the 'Hadley' and 'Rumford' have near identical crystals in size and shape. Is this one definatley a Hadley? If so that would likely make my one the 'Rumford' but I can not be sure without adverts, so...any adverts on these models?

No doubt about this one.  We should change this to 1953 Bulova Providence.   Also the other one too. https://mybulova.com/watches/1954-hadley-350  It appears the original ID was based on a crystal spec.
