Greg, is there anything on the crystal?

Can anyone confirm that Spaceviews normally have a printed crystal.

Yes, Definitely a painted crystal with every Spaceview Bulova ever made...

 To the best of my knowledge, it should have a printed crystal. Based on previous submissions, it appears it should at least have "Bulova Accutron" or "Accutron" printed in the lower left on crystal, as well as hashmarks at  3, 6, and 9 and Tuning Fork at 12.. Crystal could just be a replacement. 

It appears to me this might be a 1970 Bulova Accutron Spaceview "G".  noting replacement crystal.

Crystal replacement, even on a Spaceview isn't problematic for me. I'm ever so slightly tentative on the "G" variant ID though. I'm not 100% certain the lug is the same.

Yep, Nothing a crystal press can't take care of...

A nice side view would sure help with IDing the lugs which in turn will ID the model of Spaceview...

I struggled with the lugs as well. In the ad picture, the "5 position" lug  in ad appears to match subject watch, but all 4 lugs (in ad) appear slightly different from one another. I went on the premise it's drawing perspective/ light reflection captured by artist - and the 5 position lug is a straight on view while the others are slightly "out of focus" for lack of a better term.

I can't tell, Is the pillar plate silver or gold ? And since it's a 1970 Spaceview it should have a 2 wire coil assy instead of the early 1963-1965 3 wire coil it has now ?
