Jet Clipper "N".

The ad actually says: "Also available with black dial".

Ad is for the white dial "N".

My Bad.  The 1966 ad is for the stainless steel case, like subject watch.  
I agree subject 1963 watch is closer to this 1966 Jet Clipper "N" ad.   

Maybe we consider changing this root record ID from "Sea Clipper" to "Jet Clipper variant N"?

As listed now (1963 Sea Clipper) on tick for "Not Confirmed".  Good ad catch gang!!!

Agreed, Jet Clipper "N".

Well done with the ads, Ken. Good work all-round.

I'd give two ticks for "Jet Clipper N" and three ticks for generic "Jet Clipper".  

I bet we find that the "also available in black dial" turns out to be another variant letter, but not positive.  Different model lines vary both ways in the unique variant letter naming convention based on things like dial color.  Those with two letter variants tend to be different more often than those with one letter variant (like subject watch).

I'd be inclined to change to "Jet" here too.....generic, not "N"

I agree Geoff.  Looks like four panel members agree with a change in ID.  Maybe Stephen can change ID w/o having to run through a redundant ID review?
As currently ID'ed, there's five votes- all one tick "Non Confirmed"
