This vintage Bulova Accutron Tuning Fork mens watch is maybe from late 60s or from the 70s. I dont know much about it but I have owned it a few years. Stamped inside with model 2181 with serial number on caseback 3-65433.
The movement is their unique tuning fork movement. If I hold it up to my ear I can hear the high pitched hum of the fork in motion. This watch originally had a mercury battery in it and I installed a new type Renata one a couple weeks ago 11/20.
It has seemed to lose roughly a minute a week and may need a diode installed to regulate voltage as I read the old mercury batteries may have had a different voltage than modern ones. It could probably use a professional servicing as all I have done is replace the dead battery. There are scratches on case and crystal and one that is visible over the 4 o clock marker. The leather strap is one I installed a couple years ago.I have worn this one a few times but mostly it has sat in my collection and time to let it go. It has a cool old retro vintage style with a tannish color dial and blue on the hands with silver colored case. Please contact me if any problems should arise with an order.
