On the topic of prototypes, this is the Accutron 114.

A cased up movement found on the japanese watchmaker's instagram. Blue coils!

Photos from the collector with 20+ 114/114P movements. The movements are stored in little plastic cases.

I’m assuming that the case back was removed to show the movement, rather than be a display case back. Did they set in the same fashion as 214?

100th Anniversary Exception

Made in 1975, the Swiss made 100th Anniversary Model in stainless steel case #7581 had no date stamps on the case back, inside or out. Examples with a pedigree are few but would have a Swiss style serial number [3-xxxxxx] and a gilded 2141 Swiss movement with no date stamp.
Not long ago, one turned up on eBay without a serial number and with an N8 date stamped movement. The Swiss N8 movement looked genuine enough but then I remembered reading that the last 214's were made in 1977.
Colour me confused but not stupid.

Hello Sam2....I think I have the Anniversary Spaceview you described only that mine is the golden one, but it does have the 2141 movement stamped N8 (maybe it says N5) Hope to hear everyone's inputs

Been checking my 1960 "203" asymmetrical after looking at this post. No hole at top, no date, and appears to be a three wire, red green yellow.
Yes, that pillar plate you have appears to be one of the later "refined" 1960 examples. They seemed to make a few design changes with that early plate and yours looks like one of the final versions. Very nice 203 by the way(y).

Nice to know, SpaceviewM2, and thank you. I need to have it serviced soon. The dial has a rub mark so I'd toyed with the idea of "viewing it" and then was tipped to a good deal on a replacement dial. Unfortunately the replacement dial (to me anyways) doesn't do it for me because the entire dial has more of a gold tint to it (🤷🏻‍♂️ difficult to explain, I should provide pics). I may just leave the imperfect original dial with the watch. Whatever I choose I need to "git er done" as I haven't been able to wear it for years now. I have a number of pieces I need to send out for servicing/repair.
