Nifty watch.  I  wear & sware by my M5 214 Astronaut. It feels like it's part of me.

New band

Hay Wayne,

I would rather have a 214 Astronaut than the mark II , I have had maybe 10 214's and I have alway's sold them off.  But the mark II is a very unique watch with the complicated planetary gear system. It is a pretty nice watch. I hope others think that way when it goes on the Bay!  LOL

Very nice watch!  Sooo much different than my Mark II only two years earlier...

Very cool watches...

hay Jerin,

 I like yours better, the 71 is like a boat anker around your wrist. But it does look good.  Thanks  Mike.

Looks like, per this 1972 ad, this is an Accutron Astronaut Mark II "H".  Ad is in the database as Bulova_AD_1972_6.
