Jim,

If the Case is 33mm in Diameter I would concur with a 'JET CLIPPER' - variant unknown.

Mark do you have the ad that shows this as a Jet Clipper. All the others we have in the DB do not have the date function.

admin,

1962 ad 4 shows a 'JET CLIPPER' "J" with the Date function.

Although the Case style and Dial are not identical the Waterproof Case design, 17 Jewel Automatic Movement and its Dial attributes (luminous Hands and markers) are the same.

This Watch is a 'JET CLIPPER' - variant unknown.

IMO
