This is a vintage Bulova Accutron wristwatch dating to 1969. This is beautiful, clean, and in very good condition.
It has not been polished so it does have some minor wear. The back has some fine scratches. The watch has 49 years worth of patina and it looks fantastic!This is an unusual, desirable model with the day and date at the 6 and 12 o'clock positions. A very, very attractive Accutron! The watch runs well and keeps time. The time sets as it should.
The day and date advance properly and the date can be set by turning the crown while it is in the "in" position. The case is all stainless steel and it is about 35mm wide not including the signed Accutron Tuning Fork Logo crown. It is about 42 mm long to the tips of the lugs.
The movement is a high quality 218 2 and it has a beautiful hum. The band is a new leather replacement. The total length of the watch is about 10 inches.This uses a 17 to 18 mm band which could easily be replaced if you prefer a different style or length. The crystal is clean and clear and has no scratches. The dial is very nice and is depicted accurately in the pictures. Please see my other listings... Please note that all pictures are taken on the macro setting. This makes even the slightest imperfections and specks of dust appear much more prominent though they are often not visible without magnification. Please see the clear close-up pictures to further assess the condition of this watch. If you are uncertain about any of this watch's particulars, please feel free to ask questions! Please take time to see my other auctions this week.
