    I would say it is most likely from 1968 not 1974. By the 70's Accutrons with that shape case (It is referred to as a cushion shaped case) had the setting stem on the back of the watch.. Not with the stem at the 4 o’clock position like Jock’s that is 60's.

    They were very popular as graduation gifts and everyone I know that has one got it as such. So There is a good chance he graduated high school or College in 1968 or 69.

    I think what makes the watch look cheap to me and most likely the killer(s) is the band. Originally, that watch most likely came with a leather strap. Probably Lizard or Crocodile. What was one there when he died is a cheap replacement band. It is a Twist-O-Flex Romunda expansion band. They have a black textured center with gold or silver sides. They were very popular in the 60's and 70's. Sadly, a lot of people who got expensive watches as gifts swapped out the expensive factory band for the Twist-O-Flex bands since they were more comfortable and most people favored them.

    That band would have been about $3-$6 in the late 60's or early 70's. They are still made now and retail for about $18 and a band comparable to what the watch would have left the factory with would be 2-3 times as much.

    Sorry about the long post, but I am a watch nut and I just had to add my 2 cents.
    Where did you read that the watch was 14K gold?

    Teresa, I don't think anyone's trying to say it wasn't Locklair. Not sure where you got that idea.

    What Shutterfly isn't aware of though is that Google spells it Locklear, but the road is actually spelled Locklair. Regardless, they are two variations of the same name.

    Scottish Jock (a generic nickname for anyone who is Scottish by the way) would have been 41 in 1976 if the information is correct... can't see that one panning out

    I am sorry I misunderstood your previous post. I should have had some glasses on when I was reading it. LOL

    hi, youshouldveknown...do you mean the info about age? it's this posting:

    http://www.ubfound.com/message.php?id=80

    this person who is looking for a Jock intimates that he was in his late 30's in the early 70s, which would make him too old for our Jock, if he was indeed in his late 20s in 1976.

    or did you mean the 'Jock' name? yep, it's a term for a Scotsman & sometimes used as a name.

    Thanks kitbits. Sorry, I must not have processed that part when I read through the original posting! Thanks for clearing that up for me.

    You're right. It seems the ages are off. I can't imagine how anyone would mistake a mid-to late 20's man with a late 30's man, but it could be possible. We should keep this in our pockets just in case - but move forward as well.

    youshouldveknown, With the loose ends in this case, nothing would surprise me.
    Maybe our Jock was in his 30's?
    I know several people today, that are in their middle 30's and look no older than 25..
    plus his excellent dental work, being a teacher, 2 scars on his back all could point to Jock being older than the coroner guessed.

    I do feel our Jane Doe was possibly in her teens.

    kidbits, I agree, After 30 yrs., lets leave no stone unturned, anyone 16-40 yrs. should be considered, best to have too much than too little!

    I found this website link today to a missing girl since 1976 named Cherry Greenman. Same hair and eye color as "Jane Doe." Also, she is described as a "free spirit" and was known to travel across states by hitchhiking.

    It says on this website she went missing in September 1976, but on another website it says she may have went missing before that.
