I don't know.... The rotating outer bezel in the subject watch has the has the value 24 at the twelve-o'clock position, while the ads show the value 5 at same position....and subject watch is displaying a different time of day than the watch in the ad.  I guess these could both be minor modifications by the owner since the original point of sale.

Guess I'll go with Accutron Astronaut anyway.....:)

...my point being we are seldom gonna match the ad %100 and I have to use a little commons sense along with these calls.

I have a '63 just like in the ad, including the coffin link band. Interesting how the dial markings on the Astronauts changed over the years.
