Flight Nurse from me.   Yellow or White text in ad.  
Now to the price lists to see if there's any indication of a proposed variant based on gold color.
1961 Price List snippet below, and discussed in this other Flight Nurse "B" (yellow case) watch record.

Remember Bobbee found 1969 ad for "M" with text stating silver dial (below).  Would silver dial be on yellow or white gold case- or both?  This ad was used in this record to confirm "M" variant.

Are we willing to go out on a limb and suggest Jabs white gold example is the "A" based on all this?

I am.  Tentative Flight Nurse "A".

Has all the characteristics of the Flight Nurse. I am seeing on both the caseback and the movement a date code of N4; is this a 1974 watch by chance? If so, the A vs B may not apply, since in the early 60s there were only the two variants - easy to distinguish; but by the end of the decade there were more than those two variants. Also, isn't the 6CLC a 70s movement, made with the gold material (not sure what metal that is)?

Good point.  I saw the 60's date entered, but didn't take time to check the pictures.  By this time, there were several variants, and I'm not sure if the "A" would apply in this instance/date.

Flight Nurse no variant- easy three ticks confirmed from me.  By Spring 1964 the lists show several variants, but only price suggests which one is which at that time.
