Additional Information: 

I would like to find out more about this watch.  It is a N2 model, I believe from 1972 in mint condition, hardly worn. What is the history of this model? Is this a limited edition? I haven't seen any like it online.

Thanks.

No not a limited edition but a very unusual case shape. Early Accuquartz. Genuine diamond chip. Made for the Spanish or Italian market. What is the case, solid gold or gold filled? What is the band, Champion? Last Champion band I had like that sold for $170.

Have a look here  one I sold recently.

Bulova wanted very much to get on the new quartz wave that was rising, and produced the slightly redundant movt in the AccuQuartz line. Instead of being all quartz, it is a tuning fork watch controlled by a quartz crystal. This was a transitional movt which soon gave way to a proper quartz movt as we now know it. (Accutron Quartz)
