Accutron 214 Astronaut Dial Help

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired a small lot of Accutron case parts, dials, hands, etc, and as I was sorting and organizing the haul, this dial emerged.

Now, I'm 100% sure that these dials were used in the Astronaut models with a solid gold bezel; my question for all you tuning fork nerds, is whether this was used in any other Astronaut configuration (I don't think it was used in the solid gold models, as those had an alternating dot-diamond marker pattern, if I'm not mistaken.)

Any thoughts guys?
