After looking at this and seeing bobbee's comment, I have to agree that this looks to be a Clilpper model as shown in the 1945 advert

Can't change the model names in the edit function.

Clipper it is. Sub-seconds track is slightly different but could be due to being earlier than the '45 ad or a later dial refurb.

Here's the link to the ad:

Changed Daca102090's Tildon to Clipper based on comments above.  Then we can vote on that one :)

EDIT: So this model name change didn't reset the ticks to zero, but I think that has been temporarily disabled if/as we update and edit some of the records.
