Additional Information: 

The First and Arguably most desirable of  the Asymmetrical Accutron designs, the "521" model was released in 1960, to much fanfare... Definitely one of my favorite Asymmetric  timepieces, in general... Along with the Hamilton Electrics designed by futrist product designer Mr. Richard Arbib, in the late 50s... this was one of the ORIGINAL model 214 "tuning forks" released. And is now very sought after by Accutron and Assymetric watch collectors, alike!

 

Enjoy :-)  William

Wow William, that is fantastic!  I'm not sure I've seen this one before, but I'm sure going to be on the lookout for one now.  Love the lug style.  That is Jetson's cool.

This is the first time i've ever seen inside a "TV" case, so the case back snaps on, that's kind of what i thought when i didn't see a locking ring, i believe that this bulova case is the only accutron 214 case that doesn't use a locking ring and instead snaps on......
