Does it run and change hour markers at midnight? It looks in pretty rough shape. Now sure of value.

I am not quite sure if this is a valid Airflight. I have never seen this case being used for an Airflight. To me it looks like someone has put an airflight movement and dial into another case. The band is definitely fitting case or movement. These bicolored bands are more a product of the 90s.
Value? I'd say $50 and I personally wouldn't even pay this much...

It is a correct Airflight, although by this time (ca. 1970), they were no longer called that. The bracelet is an aftermarket replacement.

I've owned a couple of these, both with the same linen finish dial. The case originally had a cross-hatched "Florentine" finish which looks to have been long since worn off. This example seems to have served a long, rough life. These chunky cases are not as popular with collectors, and this one may be beyond restoration, but I would suggest that the movement alone is worth well more than $50.

Oh, good to know! Thanks for educating me, Cary. It's the first time I see an Airflight in this case. I know, they changed name over time, as far as I know initially it was called the Super-G.

I replaced the band. It does not click over on the 1:00 hour. I had it cleaned by a local Jewler and he could not get that remedied. Is this watch worth putting some money into? I have seen "mint" ones going for crazy money, but I am very new to the watch world.
