Unknown says I. Look at the 'smallness' of that movement. (That a word?)

Here's the snippet from the 1973 ad linked above for the model 12620. The text discription for this watch ad only says "#12620-17 jewels. $70".  Click for full ad.

Quite similar, but subject watch model name is Unknown to me for now.

I noticed the second hand is different from the ad, but the watch looks very similar to the ad when in hand otherwise.

The watch in the ad is the subject watch and should be added as '12620'

I'm with Geoff on this one, other than the second hand..the watch is almost an exact match.

12620.

Fifth....any evidence to show your Clipper call. It may help me and others see something that you have seen in a better light.

I just found an advert showing the exact watch with the same second hand as the Jet Star '12620', so I am publishing as such.
