Watch Description

Here is one of the watches from my Accutron collection.  I believe it is an Astronaut Mark II, or otherwise referred to a "The boat anchor".  I acquired this watch a while back and had it restored.  What I love about it is that it wears the original bracelet it was sold with (or though I think).  It isn't mint, but it is in exceptional shape and keeps accurate time.  I have not (or am too scared to) removed the caseback so I'm not aware of the movement date, though the case is dated N1. Can anyone confirm the movement these watches used?  This watch is for sale if anyone is interested.  Thanks!

Found a good linebook entry match for the Bulova Accutron Astronaut Mark II "H".

Agree with Mark II "H".

Movement will be the 2185, like in this one.

Thanks all of you who provided information about my watch. If anyone is interested, I am wanting to sell this watch. I am asking $700 OBO. The watch was serviced last year and currently runs accurately, though being a vintage watch I can't guaranty any future performance. If interested, drop me a note.
