ok I'm confused is it a clipper? the case is 1963, the sea clipper ad is 1962. could this be a sea clipper variant used in 1963 based on a 1962

Different dial than Sea Clipper (or just variant dial), but three ticks from me.  Sea Clipper is self-winding. The rest looks good. Two/three ads showing same watch now w/ dial as in ad above.

 This may be a Jet Clipper based on this 1965 Ad

Check the curve in the lugs for the Jet Clipper ad Andersok linked above compared to the lugs being more straight in subject watch.  Looks like a small difference between the two cases.  The dials seem to be a match though.  
As listed now- Sea Clipper-I'm at two ticks.

Good catch - perhaps this 1966 ad is a more closer match

Much closer in that 1966 ad (case shape and dial - not the "N" though as the 1966 ad is for "charcoal dial").  Wondering if there was some naming convention change between 1963 and 1966?
