This model is the Cartier Ref: 15176 (New York boutique version). This is the rarest variation of the Stepped Tank series. It was the only model that was coated in gold on a "brass" metal alloy case (the Paris and London variations were gold coated on "steel" cases). It was produced around 1975-76 at the Cartier boutique in New York. It was also the only reference that had a "Four screws" back cover (the other models had snap-on cases). It is also the only one with an unusual crown with an elongated spinel cabochon. It was also the only one that had a slight area in the case design to protect the crown. This was the only reference that had serial numbers unlike the London and Paris versions. These serial numbers on the stepped case should always start with the number 12 followed by its 5-digit case serial number. The other references did not have a serial number on the exterior of the case and were lightly/superficially engraved with the Cartier brand and text. They had an ETA 2512/Cartier caliber 78-1 movement signed ''Cartier Inc'' (Only US market Cartier ETA calibers were signed Cartier Inc). Research on serial numbers indicates that ref: 15716 was only produced in a maximum of 2500 pieces before it was discontinued at the end of 1976, making it the rarest of the three references and the highest quality.
