Nice 218D. I like the band too, gives the watch a rich look.

Nice Accutron "Calendar", variant letter is unknown, but it appears if the watch only has a date, Bulova called it a Calendar, and if it had both the day & date, they called it a Day/Date

Based on the dial difference Greg, roman vs arabic, I would say it's not the 'Calendar' although it's tempting.

218 says I
