My Accutron astronaut 214 M4 has an extra hand, probably for setting to GMT. This is for Samantha or any other knowledgeable Accutron person. How do you set that hand?

The 24-hour hand is not individually settable on the Astronaut 214. The bezel on these turns, instead. The 218 model has an individually settable 24.hour dial, as I recall.

Thanks, Doug. I was wondering, since I couldn't see any way to move it either.

Yes, it is the bezel of the Astronaut that turns to set the difference in time between you and where you want the hand to point. I have had one for over 40 years and it is still humming along.
