Nice call Mark, the ad says it all, agreed MC.

Hi, 

Thanks for quick response!

Before I bought it, the vendor described it as a Clipper, but couldn't tell me how he knew that.

There is no second hand on my watch - so would that suggest it is not a Clipper?

At the moment it is being serviced. I should be able to provide a shot of the caseback by this time next week.

Thanks again.

The second hand is probably just missing. Ask your watchmaker to replace it if the pinion hasn't broken off.

Hi,

Why didn't I think of that! I'll give my man a ring in the morning.

Thanks.

Shawn is right on. the ALAC is a Center Seconds Movement.

The AC in the abbreviation standing for Automatic, Center seconds.

Midnight Clipper for me as well. I think we have a proper colour advert somewhere too.

1950's ads admin - it seems this model was around for a while.
