Following the link above I see Jet Star but no indication of variant designation.

Gang I'm still trying to figure out how we got the "C" for this one?  The one ad I see, showing subject watch, gives a model number 11634, but no indication of "C".  If we had an ad showing a "B" and "D" which were not like subject watch, then we may be able to conjure up C for this one.  Right now it looks like C is a guess.  Did I miss something on this series?

IMO this would be a confirmed Jet Star, however an unconfirmed Jet Star "C".  Tentative "C" would be a stretch, as I still find no indication of "C" coming from anything.  I'm not going to vote a one check (for now) as I feel this is an injustice to say unconfirmed, but if I were to vote, based on my understanding of how we vote, it would have to be one check.  This is where some working definitions would help in assigning checks.

Agreed on all points, Will. 

And it would be good to document a jewel count appropriate to the Jet Star series.

I'm with Will on this one, I'm not seeing a " C " anywhere in the ad either. Sorry, it's 2 for now but just for the record, I think it will prove itself out eventually.

It's a beautiful watch, and Geoff has both a white dial and blue dial version.  Both "C's", but beautiful just the same.  Both like NOS!!!
