Looks like a good match to the AC 'F'; may not be the correct hands.

Sharp looking watch!

Correct about the hands.. Feather Gilt Hands were added. Its hard to find original 10AE or 10AN Hands if you happen to know a source? 

Thank you for your comments and confirmation

It'a American Clipper for certain. Not sure about F either, the difference between "B" & "F" seems to be the mount.

Geoff, it appears that the 'B' variant is without the bezel engravings
