Influenced by Stowa from the 30s IIRC, but they had all the numerals, not just the evens. I'll have to Google it though.

Nice, maybe consider x-posting in the "Poor man's watch thread" too: http://www.styleforum.net/t/223261/poor-mans-watch-thread/4440_30
The stitching looks identical to the AS Alex too:
I'm pretty sure those are Alfred Sargent. C&J uses a different style "Peal & Co" font like this one:I'd have to see the printing inside to be sure though.
How about the Rogue in Bob's Chili? http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF5042_1_40000000001_-1?style=5043 As a blucher it is less formal than the Strand (so more appropriate for your general attire), but still a semi brogue.

Worth the wait! I'm really liking these! Thanks Steve!
