NOTES:  The advertisements indicate that the Tuxedo and Craftsman are identical EXCEPT that the Tuxedo came with a matching, solid 14k gold, basketweave bracelet, while the Craftsman did not.  The one ad that lists the various colors for the two watches fails to mention white gold as an option for the Craftsman.  That may have been a simple omission, or it may be an indication that only the Tuxedo was offered in white gold.
