Can you post a pic of the case back as well?

I would say the correct year is 1942 not '32, and it looks like the Cadet/Ranger/Lieutenant.

I agree Old Ticker, Ranger was the unengraved yellow case. Hands shown are Dauphine-Should be Modern, second hand is missing. Color determines the name of the watch in this case. Raijin, your watch case appears to be yellow in your pictures, therefore it would be a Ranger. Also you have the the movement listed above as 7 jewels, it should be corrected to 17.

It is a 15J movement Wayne.

Hands look to have been replaced, but it ceratinly looks like a Ranger.

Also crystal shape in Tonneau.

Movement pic clearly shows 15 jewels. Root record lists as 17 jewels.  I'll change root record jewel count from 17 to 15, assuming it's a typo.
