Additional Information: 

I've had this old Clipper for awhile.  I'm about 100% positive it's a 1962 Jet Clipper A.  I haven't taken the case back off as I believe this to be a compression back and I'm terrible at them.  

This thing is pretty much NOS.  Zero wear anywhere, including the back.

I stole the movement, and Crystal info from another 1962 JC A we had in the database.

Bought this for a good looking round classic style Bulova.

It belonged to a Shriner but I guess since I'm not a member I probably need to switcht the band. I may put a nice black leather on it.

Additional Information: 

I think this is a Clipper of some kind, and these pics don't do it justice, it is a good looking watch. I don't think it has ever been serviced, there is no indication that anyone has ever opened the case, in fact, it was a bit of a pain to get it open due to age and corrosion. There isn't a mark on the movt anywhere to suggest it has ever been touched, a bit concerning, considering it appears to be well worn.

Bracelet as recieved is a half expansion JB Champion that looks like it might be original?

It will get the full CTR and polish, and I should mention that the  bezel does not have any texture like on some clippers of the same period. It is simply a polished stainless case. 

It is difficult to make out in the pic, but the dial says 'Automatic'.

Possible Bulova Jet Clipper from 1969

All stainless steel case and caseback, dated M9. Approx 31mm diameter N/I crown. Black dial with silver and luminous hands and markers (may be original, as the case showed years of grime before being cleaned). Has an 11BLAC 17-Jewel automatic movement dated M8. Crystal removed for photos.

Closest ad I could find is a 1966 Jet Clipper that comments on a black dial; not sure if this same named model was still being made in 1969, or using another name.
