Additional Information: 

I have just purchased this watch and am looking for some help in identifying it.

It's stamped M3 on both the movement (11AFCD 17 Jewel) and the inside of the case back, which is also engraved 398-1 and MLB. The full case is stainless steel with a black dial with Bulova in a raised font and 'Astrojet' and 'Swiss' painted on.

Thanks in advance for any pointers! If you need any more info/pictures, let me know!

I saw the original listing for the auction, and the additional pictures clearly show an Astrojet on the dial.

Yes. 100% Astrojet on the dial - I've just uploaded some new pictures which show that more clearly. Also discovering how difficult it is to photograph watches!

Thanks Stuart, there did seem to be a bit of confusion.  You're spot on regarding photos, we have a couple members who do an amazing job on their photos. I am always in awe of their talent.

OK  Astrojet.  Got it.  With no ads and no listing in any prices lists (through 1964), I'm good with a tentative ID of Astrojet, unknown variant.
