It's hard to get a good picture of the date codes, but they both say M8.

This one is a bit beat up, unfortunately, otherwise I'd get it restored.

68 Aerojet "K" and I would go ahead and get it restored if it were mine.

The problem is the lugs. They are in sad shape, and one of the lug holes is blown out at the bottom. If the case was in a bit better shape, I'd agree with you. Having said that, though, I still may change my mind. I love this model, and really want one to wear.

Hard to tell if the Aerojet K in the ad has the champagne dial or the white like the subject watch. I would think if the watch in the ad had the white dial, there would be no question. Have to go Aerojet no variant at this time.

Aerojet "K".

I think this watch has already had a re-dial, and a poor one as that is why the dial is not Butler finished, and also why the paint is peeling away at the edges.

I good with "K", but did note the slight dial difference.
