Additional Information: 

Here's an unusual case style I've yet to see for a 2182 Accutron with N3 marked movement.  This is a gold electroplate bezel, and 10k rgp back.  Hooded, or hidden lugs, and the black area around the coin edge bezel appears to be an enamel or painted coarse area.  Another used purchase, I'm unable to provide additional history.

Nice one Archie, It's certainly an Accutron Day Date,  I can't find the letter variant on it.

I've been an Accutron fan for over a year now, and during that time I've shopped online (eBay, etc) and other places as well.  I've seen many styles of cases, but as of yet I've not run across this one.

Accutron Day & Date variant unknown. Is that black or brown around the bezel?

I'll stick to Accutron, Day/ Date. I know about as mutch about Accutrons as I do Military, so it's up to you guys . I don't know if there's a variant or if it's a numbered model so the generic is all good.

I'm good with generic Day/Date for now until we find a variant ad.

No one else here has seen or has this unusual case style?  I'm stumped, as I've never seen one before.
