    I agree! That is the best possible answer to the question!!

    No I mean on the movement it says "214".

    Shouldn't it be stamped "214h" or "214hn "

    ac106, a 214 would be a normal 214 movement, a 214H would be 214 with hacking device, and 214HN would be hacking and GMT hand. So.., if the movement only had 214 marked on it, then wouldn't have a GMT hand on it, and therefore not a correct Astronaut. Is this correct others?

    On two of my Astronauts I know the HN is stamped above the '214" movement stamping. The one Astronaut on Ebay that has a pic of the movement does have the HN stamping but I'm not sure its the same watch we are talking about.

    Here is a new find on the Astronaut front. What has always been thought of as the Deep Sea World Timer, is actually an Astronaut model.

    I don't know about anyone else but when I think of a Astronaut I think of Spaceview M2's avatar, that "Bulova 1970 Accutron Astronaut" just isn't a Astronaut to me......
