Additional Information: 

This is a fantastically 70s watch. The hands are amazing. I got this with the quickset not functioning properly and in need of a good cleaning and new crystal. I love when the original finish is still visible on these kind of watches and they aren't just polished to death.

The Case appears to be missing a rotating bezel, if so 'OCEANOGRAPHER'.

Unfortunately at this time there is not an ad available to match the Watch.

'UNKNOWN'

I didn't check the ad Geoff posted, but if it's a Jet Star (series) and matches the ad, would the variant field be used for the spicific model number 11632 ?

11630 Will, the ad reads "clockwise from the top".
