This is a saleman's sample of the Accutron Astronaut Mk IV, its crowns long since been scavenged for repair on another watch. It probably was complete at the time with band.

The pics show light scuffing from being in a drawer for many years, but these would easily buff out. The crystal is mineral glass.

I'm wondering if the serial number- which begins with an 'I', not a '1', is unique to samples.

Just a bit of history.

-1970 Bulova Accutron Astronaut Mark II 'E'

One of my favorite styles, this is an all stainless steel case with black dial and the 2185 movement. Case is SS and dated N0, case number A2991, bit of corrosion on the underside. Nice black dial with red accents. Movement is USA made 2185, cannot find a datecode, which is typically under the lower cell strap. Missing that cool mesh band, but looks nice on a leather strap.

Additional Information

Bulova Accutron Swiss Astronaut. 1968 (M8). This is the "Cream Dial" Swiss Variant known as the Type 4 Swiss Astro. There are two "Type 4" variants (Both Swiss).  A Black Dial and a Cream Dial. The Black Dial is way more common. This Cream Dial Astronaut has a correct Swiss  1966(M6) 214HN GMT movement. This one has the unique inlaid Black Enamel Bezel, only found on Type 4 Swiss Astronauts. The Cream Dial has the correct Painted Tuning Fork LOGO at 12 o'clock, applied Baton hour markers in all other postions, also unique to only Type 4 Swiss Astronauts . Because the 24hour GMT hand has to clear the applied markers on the dial, the  24hour GMT hand is 'stepped'. The hands are correct Baton hands only found on the Type 4 Swiss variants.The case number is 546-2 which is unique to the Swiss Astronauts. The other USA Astronauts are case# 2410. There isn't alot of other info on these Swiss variants. I included a link to the Astronaut variants. I don't know of any ad that show this Cream Dial. I have seen a few ads with the Black Dial.

Bulova Accutron Astronaut Mark II "H" from 1971

All stainless steel case housing the 2185 Accutron movement; wonderful dial with blue and orange accents; original band with the Accutron logo on the clasp; hard to find a scratch or mark on this so perhaps it was never worn or NOS.

Advert from 1970
