Bulova 1968 Accutron Astronaut
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.
