    For someone who’s not to hot on a particular brand, 500 seems extreme.

    Darold Hanson's book "Accutron Watches" refers to an Accutron Astronaut L 21209W and is listed as having a white dial, searching on google they look like later Swiss variants than what Stu3 has though. I like the white personally.

    This is interesting indeed. I have a Swiss cream/white Astro and the one I had is definitely different. You can still the watch on Piker's website and how it differs from the one above. It looks like an enamel finish....creamy....like milk....but in a good way. But that was also the fault where a section of it had cracked and started to fall off. If someone wants to post a better picture of the dial here, IM me and I'll send it. I tried to post it, but could never get it to work. Other than the fault on the dial (and the fact that the watch didn't run properly when I received it - shame on Piker - I was warned), it was an interesting watch and quite unique looking. It never occured to me that it was not a factory dial.

    Maybe my eyes look at your watch different accutronredux, but it looks silver to me.
