The Accutron system was the biggest advance in watchmaking since the 16th century. It was a revolutionary system that eliminated for the first time the mainspring and balance. It was of course the precursor for the quartz movements.
Tuning fork watches proved to be much more accurate than mechanical watches and were powered by batteries, not the winding of a mainspring. They use magnetism and reliable electronic frequencies. Instead of the ticking sound made by mechanical watches, the Accutron had a faint, high pitch hum which came from the vibrating tuning fork.
These watches are definitely a fabulous piece of horological history. This one in particular is in wonderful original condition with an intact electronic movement that is working perfectly and with the original Bulova Accutron box.
