Additional Information: 

Accutron M3 Railroad  Model "201". This is the classic "B" case # (2362) Stainless Steel Railroad  Model 201 Style "21014". This is the 24 hour dial with the correct blued hands and red second hand. Comes with the correct 214H(Hacked) M3 movement and sports the black calf leather band.  We have finally found some good advertisement pics of the watch which I will attach below. The 24h dial is usually associated with the Canadian Railroad. Model 201 Railroad came in both a 12h dial and 24h dial and both GF case(rare) and the Stainless Steel case(common). This is an excellent running early Railroad example.

Very nice example. Thanks for adding and sharing your knowledge and information. 

Can you confirm M3 movement, it looks like M2 under magnification?

   Here's a close-up.  Getting clear stamp marks can be a tough task sometimes. :)

Thanks Ken. Thanks to you and your posting some 201 ads recently, I was able to post up this watch with some confidence. Good Model ads had made this model abit hard to properly identify in the past.
