The Swiss crystal list above in image 3 shows case 316 can also have a 214H if it's Swiss because all swiss watches came with a 214H....

hidden spaceview is what alot of people call the Swiss chapter ring watches because they are very easy to make into a spaceview by removing the dial and in most cases just adding a spaceview crystal which alot of people did, that's why Swiss chapter ring watches that still have their dials are getting hard to find....

I've never heard the term used anywhere. It seems to me that all Accutrons that are not spaceviews could fit this definition. It seems like we should be cautious about using non Bulova terms in naming watches as not to mislead those who come to myBulova for proper ID's for their watches.

Only the Swiss chapter ring watches that are not spaceview watches can be called a "hidden spaceview" watch like this watch, i can't believe you guys have never heard of a "Hidden Spaceview" before....... 

Just do a google search and it will be all over the place......

Well I've heard of it now. Thanks for filling us in- or me in anyway.  Wondering if these before conversions are gonna be more valuable and harder to find than the conversions... I certainly like them better pre-conversion at any rate :)

Me to, i have sold all my spaceview watches because they are always in question and for that reason i have lost all interest in them and now i only collect Swiss Made Bulova Accutrons because the Swiss made watches are much more rare and for every 100 USA made accutron you see you will only see 1 Swiss made accutron.......
