I believe this to be a Jet Clipper. Got it for a bargain on eBay and couldn't be happier with it! It runs and looks great. The dial is beginning to show some patina which should make it look really unique in the future. The only thing that worries me are the hands, as they almost look rusty. Maybe just pitted? And it seems a bit hard to set, like it needs to be lubricated perhaps? The lume is is pretty nice shape and glows nicely, but shortly. Also, I was wondering about a quicker and easier way to set the date. Luckily it wasn't too far off, but if it ever sits for long, I'd like to know a faster way to set the date rather than just continuously advancing the time until I eventually get there. Any help would be appreciated.

Case and 11AFACD movement are both dated 1962 (M2). All stainless steel. "Waterproof", shock resistant, anti-magnetic. It's a really nice little watch and I'm surprised I was able to get it so affordably. 

Finally figured out a way to post a supporting ad, ha ha!

1962 Jet Clipper "J". Missing crown, but runs and is quite accurate. Movement is M1 and case is M2. It's in as found state as seen and a little threadbare, but the only one  I have ever encountered.

Running and keeping time.

I've had this old Clipper for awhile.  I'm about 100% positive it's a 1962 Jet Clipper A.  I haven't taken the case back off as I believe this to be a compression back and I'm terrible at them.  

This thing is pretty much NOS.  Zero wear anywhere, including the back.

I stole the movement, and Crystal info from another 1962 JC A we had in the database.

Bought this for a good looking round classic style Bulova.

It belonged to a Shriner but I guess since I'm not a member I probably need to switcht the band. I may put a nice black leather on it.
