Here is the other portion of the crystal chart showing additional Accutron models using that case 2362. 

It shows another Spacieview, variant 'B', using this case.

I could not find any ads showing the 'C' variant, and it is ommitted from the 1961 pricelist and the 1964 list - so no help there.

I did find a photo of a Spaceview using a similar case and sporting a leather band, 'C' perhaps?

This photo is from the 1961/62 Bulova Annual Report. Not sure at this point if subject watch is a 'B' or a 'C'

I'm leaning towards that watch with a leather band being of the "C" variety but it's hard to tell with a black and white photo.

1961 Bulova Price sheet for Fall of 1961 only shows one Accutron Spaceview with no variant. Price was $250.

I'm with Accutron Spaceview for now. I hope to own one of these one day...A great collectors piece.

That $250.00 Spaceview would be one of two possible models (14 kt gold Alpha and Scalloped Lug models)  in a solid 14KT gold cases.  By 1963, magazine ads listed the 14KT Spaceview "Alpha" at $200.00. I believe a Spaceview in a stainless steel case would have been selling in the $150.00 price range.
