Additional Information: 

I do not have a proper photo of this watch yet.  Please excuse the poor image from my phone.

 

I will post more information and photos for this watch as soon as I can.  I have found very little information for it, and am not sure it's a cadet, though it looks almost identical to the ones I've seen online.  The fancey scrolling around the bezel does continue to the arms on my watch (you can barely see it on the photo.

The inside of the back says the usual 10K rolled gold plate. 

The band is one that has been handed down with the watch.  I don't remember seeing any other band on it, but it doesn't seem to fit the watch.

I'm confused!! Is the picture above the watch you are trying to ID? Have you attempted to search the on-site ads? 1943 would be a good start.

Don't think you have a Cadet here brother.

Check out this ad from 1944, in particular watch #6.  

I'm thinking you have a 1943-44 "Arnold".

Ad might help!  kjnelan I think you could have found this ID without any help. The information is on-site so that you can identify your watch.

Case serial # would suggest '47 Arnold. Need more pics, unfortunately owner has not posted for nearly a year.

Looks like this record should be ID'ed a 1947 Arnold rather than a 1943 Cadet.  Musta slipped through the cracks/queue.
