Stainless Steel version is the Spaceview 'G'

10KT Gold Filled bezel with Stainless Steel back with clear crystal is the Spaceview 'H'

10KT Gold Filled version is the Spaceview 'I'

10KT Gold Filled bezel with Stainless Steel back with lume hour markets is the Spaceview 'S'

There also an Spaceview 'N'

CR = Chapter Ring / GF = Gold Filled...

 

The "Swiss Made" chapter ring spaceview is none of those...

Those are all USA made chapter ring spaceview watches...

The "Swiss Made" chapter ring spaceview watches used the largest crystals of all the spaceview watches at a whopping 33.6mm whereas the USA version spaceview were a notably smaller 32.7mm...

I don't believe the Swiss used letter designations like Spaceview 'S' or 'H' and instead used what is called "Watch Style" numerical system like this watch, for instance, I believe is a "Watch Style" 28102...

Any thoughts on this theory?

Yes I do. We do not designate using style numbers when we know them. There was a time we did but we have long since stopped. We would, short of an advert, classify as "Accutron"

I understand, Wouldn't it be classified as a Spaceview or just Accutron?

I would agree with Spaceview. Nice looking example.
