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.
