Non-conforming. Movement dates from 1937/38 (has both an arrow and a moon), case is likely mid-40's American Clipper, face is likely late 50's.

Aha! Good call. Dial is hard to see there, but the case matches. Thanks.

Agree, American Clipper.

1946 ad, a little clearer on the dial.Price rise seems very unreasonable for the "time of austerity".

 

Dial not a match, though.

Love it. You guys rock! This one was grainy, out of focus, upside down, and mixed in with a bunch of crap watches for barely the price of postage. Great find. Can't wait to see it close up.
