Hmmm...

Do you by chance have the crystal proportions for this version of the "Ranger," Ty? I believe I have the glass+ but only the '55 Ranger" ID'd to date, oddly!? (Tonneau: "T" shape at 24.4 x 15.8mm ???)

 

Best :-)  Scott

TdH  Any chance you have case/crystal dimensions still?  We are trying to tie the Ranger design in with earlier "unknowns" which share many characteristics.  Please and thanks

Thanks for adding the crystal specs, and case dimensions.   So we have ads for these by your watch date.  I noticed there were a couple 1932 Rangers - tentative rangers.  They had engraving, but dimensions on my exmaple was similar to yours.  Not that similar, but I'm thinking the case shape got wider at the crown on your Ranger.    I'm looking at the number of rounded steps on your vs the number and shape of steps on my tentative 1932 ranger........and also looking at the 1932 ad for Maxim.  It's a third party ad, but it may be better than no ad for the year of my 1932.  ..and see crystal specs for Maxim, Ranger and Nathan Hale are similar.  

Yours is a Ranger three ticks confirmed....but I'm questioning the 1932 tentative rangers again....

Subject watch Case window for crystal 15mm x 23mm

My tentative 1932 Ranger Crystal measures: 15.8 x 24.2mm

thanks again for adding dimensions.
