Additional Information

On 4/11, a 1945 ad was posted, identifying half a dozen unidentified watches as "American Clipper".  Coincidently, on the same day, I obtained this one.  It's unique from the others in one respect.  The movement is a 17 jewel 10BCC.  The movement date code suggests 1946, which matches the case back.  Up to this point,  the earliest 10BCC in the database has been 1948.

Beautiful watch... although it's a little later, I still think we're good with the American Clipper.

American Clipper, indeed!

Dr. Ranfft lists the 10BCC date range starting in 1946, FWIW.
