It certainly looks like the Minuteman case but something tells me it has another name. Still searching.

I concur .   I saw it here while doing some research but can't find it again.

Panel members - I can't find a match. I rather think the diamonds are aftermarket. Should we label this Minuteman?

As written on the other site:

Note: Once thought to be strictly an aftermarket addition, the diamonds on the bezel of this watch may, in fact, be part of the original design.
