Obviously an Accutron 218, but I'm hoping for a more precise ID. Please note the asymmetrical case - the dial is not centered on the bezel. Thanks to everyone.

I have seen this case with different dials, and I have seen the dial in different cases. Maybe a marriage?

Hi joe - This is a classy looking watch. Bulova called the Accutron with just a date window "Calendar". Usually there was a variant letter to go along. I don't see this exact configuration in any of our ads so I'm inclined to go with "Accutron Calendar" for the ID.

Accutron Calendar for me as well. I'm still looking to see if we have a variant listing. Can't find anything yet.

Thanks to the valiant efforts of all involved. I'm happy with the Calendar designation, was just hoping for something more precise.
