It's either a Craftsman or a Tuxedo, though I don't have the original band. I went with Tuxedo because of the contrasting color of the sub-seconds area.

Overall Length: 38mm

Width: 21mm

If we ever come up with an ad that shows the Craftsman in white gold, then I will agree with you, Fifth, that the two watches are identical except for the band.  But, until that day. . . Tuxedo it is, as shown and described in the ads that we have.

Fifth Regardless of the ads you post my ad clearly says, and I quote

" TUXEDO...14 Karat gold...21 jewels. With 14 Karat gold basket weave wrist band $225.* With leather, cushioned, hand sewn strap, $125.00*."

That tells me the "Tuxedo" came either way and I still concurr with Lisa.

This ad conspicuously omits a white gold Craftsman. Until an ad shows up that has one I'll stick with Tuxedo.

Probably to late to make a difference but my vote is 3 ticks Tuxedo.

Three ticks for Tuxedo as listed w/o the variant.  Discussion suggests that this is one of those model variants that may be based on the mount (solid gold bracelet differentiates between letter variants).
