Here are the pictures from my two Veri-Thin Faith which you asked for.
The Yellow Gold one I bought as NOS, this is why I know the name. I have never seen the watches being advertised under that name.

The inital All Star model which has been advertised in 1952 came with a different dial which was quite fancy, it was dark outside and had a round inner white part with the markers. I have attached an ad for reference. Also the band was different to the Veri-Thin Faith.

This is WR761 and I would wonder if WR752 (no diamonds) and WR757 (4 diamonds) would have a different style / caliber combination. The Catalog shows WR752 and 761 with the All Star dial with only the numbers 12 and 6 and the WR757 with the dial of my yellow gold version. So I think that with they did mix dials just like the changed the sales names.
