Any help identifying this puppy? I don't even know the date because there is no date stamp on the caseback. Can't find it in the advertisements either. I hope one of the resident geniuses can come up with something. Thanks, as always.

Looks to be from the 218 series Accutron.

Update - I took the back off to see if I could learn anything. There was no date stamp (as expected), but it is stamped 2182, and not 2182 G as represented by the person I bought it from.

Do you happen to see a date stamp on the movement; possibly near the lower battery strap screw?

I couldn't find a date stamp anywhere on the movement.

Is there a case number stamped or printed on the inside caseback?

Most unusual, no date code on either. We know it's Accutron, 1970 falls within the range of the 218 movement. Short of an advert (I don't see anything)

1970 Accutron. Very nice looking watch Joe, looks brand new.

I would agree that this is from the 1970s. I could not find a match to it in any ad.
