I have discussed, with a couple of the very knowledgeable members here, the subject of the next watch I want to add to my little collection. I did this for the sake of seeking some advise but I found this one along the way and it sang to me. 14k rolled gold case, 14k solid bezel and virtually NOS condition. And now, TOO DAH !!

The pattern is full!

Is that photo your version of a MACH 1 flyby? I think I just heard all the crystals in my watch box crack.

Thank you ACCUTRONREDUX and SAM2. Do you agree with my conclusion that it is an L model Astronaut ?

I'm not sure what it is. Some call it a "B" and that may stand for beautiful for all I know. I do know that if you continue collecting Astronauts, a solid gold "C" or one of those with a platinum case will keep you busy for some time. Now, that platinum number would be the true grail and more rare than sasquatch.

I have never seen a platinum Accutron show up for sale but, if one did, I suspect it would take deeper pockets than mine to snag it. I know of a physician who would be after it. Hey, maybe we could buy shares in it and pass it around !

Thank you Akkatron. It's not the watch I was looking for but I happened onto it and the price was right. Isn't it amazing how often you find something when you aren't looking for it ? Now I'll return to the original search and hope I don't find it before I replenish the war chest.
