Sweet! Case SN says 1955 though.

I see the L3 on the movement, and it looks like a date code on the case back, just can't read it.
Statesman looks good, but a closer front-on pic would help.

Not sure what the watch name is but sure it is not "Tank". Tank is a case style and, I believe, a watch NAME that Cartier patented.

Agreed w/ Statesman. If the "stainless back" in Delegate ad is a typo then how do we distinguish between these two models?  We may have more than one ad now stating "stainless back" for Delegate.  I gotta check.

The ad for the 'DELEGATE' states the Watch has a Stainless Steel back, We see examples that match.

In the ad for the 'STATESMAN' there is no mention of a Stainless back and We see examples with Gold Casebacks.

At this time this is Our only discerning difference between the 2 Models.

Agreed. I remember discussion of the Delegate ad possibly being a typo- the stainless back part- but we have example watches w/ both.
Looks like a 1953 Statesman to me.

EDIT OCT 23rd:  I meant to type DELEGATE

I'd say Statesman, with re-dial.

Stainless back as stated in the ad, I don't think that's a typo, I'm with Mark on the Delegate or we go non confrming due to the refinished dial.
