Not quite, ya don't got the 'crosshairs'!

BTW, just what is the difference between A and B? Must be really subtle.

Dang you've got good eyes ! The 1 2, 4 5, 7 8, 10 11 markers on "A" are longer and it looks like all of "B" markers have some black on them.......

Yes, sorry. Accutron with no other identification. My way of saying I think we can only tag this watch only as an "Accutron". We have no other model or variant.

These Accutrons are just tooooo beautiful to not have a model name (or number).  The sales/marketing folks whereever they were originally sold would leverage a name vs an internal unique Bulova model number.  For now, generic, but I'm holding out hope we will find model names for a bunch of these beauties.
