Not sure about the dial... should say SELFWINDING?

Jeff is right, the dial should have self-winding printed on it, also the markers a different than the 1953 Clipper that I have with a 10CSC movement. The back of the case should say water tite and self-winding on it.

Pictures of the back and movement will be needed to confirm.

Dial is identical to 1954 "unknown", posted by Jim Townsend. Possible newer dial variant.

Tentative from me for now... 2 ticks  Zappatore, can you confirm the movement model (caliber) for the watch?  Please  ...and thanks for entering a "?" in that field while it remains unknown. Nice watch.

Even though the dial is slightly different, still a Clipper for me, as long as the movement is correct.

I have simular watches in various years (1952-57) and sizes that have that Identical dial.  I have one posted with a sunburst that had that dial,  had to change it out due to its condition.

I have a 52 like yours with the same movement but it reads  L2.    I can't read the movement, is it L4 ?
