Thanks, This has the "Simple Black Luminous" dial. It took over two years and some horse trading to get my hands on this one, It also features a long tube "fils" sweep second hand.

Sometime around 1963 bulova added "astronaut" & luminous "dots" between the hour markers to the dial, From everything I've been able to find it looks like 1963 was the last year for the "coffin link" bracelet on astronaut watches and in 1964 bulova seems to have switched to the "bullet link" bracelet on the astronaut watches.

Great looking watch overall. Wish I had one myself....it'd certainly get plenty of wrist time!

The bracelet certainly gives it that extra wow value.

I know there are much more beautiful Astronaut variants like these...

But the rareness of and the uncluttered look of both the simple black non-luminous & luminous dials of the M2's make up for some of that....

I had the dial and hand set relumed at international dial and i'm more that happy with their work and it only cost me $35 + shipping !
