-1970 Bulova Accutron Astronaut Mark II 'E'

One of my favorite styles, this is an all stainless steel case with black dial and the 2185 movement. Case is SS and dated N0, case number A2991, bit of corrosion on the underside. Nice black dial with red accents. Movement is USA made 2185, cannot find a datecode, which is typically under the lower cell strap. Missing that cool mesh band, but looks nice on a leather strap.

1970 Bulova Accutron Astronaut Mark II 'E', noting possible replacement of minute and second hands that do not apear to match ad. Nice one Ken.

Classic Astronaut, nice job Ken. That black dial against the stainless looks great. The bracelet is probably one of the hardest to find, especially with the correct tips.

That is the best looking Astronaut Mark II I have ever seen! It almost makes me want to branch out into the 218 line of watches! What a great looking watch!
