That is a beauty, and my favourite case shape.

I will get searching, but I think it's a Clipper model. No depth resistance rules out the Oceanographer/Snorkel.

 

Edit- here we are, th Golden Clipper "H", 1971 ad. Do you have a pic of the movement? It should be gold plated, thanks!

I'm getting "page not found" for the 1971 Golden Clipper "H" ad linked above.  I'll go take a look in the ad database. 
Slightly clearer snippet of ad below

Yeah, I'm kind of leaning in the direction of the Golden Clipper "H" as well.

Gents, is that a 'H' or 'W' in the advert? Looks like a 'W' but I can't be certain. Agree on the Golden Clipper.

Edit - scarp that I found the advert and yes it's a 'H'.
