1975 Bulova Accutron Day/Date (variant letters unknown) 2182 movement, Electroplated Bezel, 10K RGP back, much desired 10K Gold filled "Duchess" bracelet band.

I purchased this one and the 1974 that will follow at a local estate sale for $20.00 not running, got them home and popped a new 344 battery in each, gave them a rap against my palm, and they both took off...both had the original Bulova marked 218 batteries in them, so they didn't have much wrist time...now to find a ad.

Either generic Accutron Day & Dayte or just Accutron.

Lets start running through these otherwise we'll be here all year trying to figure these out.

If we can't find an exact match then we really need to give it a generic label until such time we have an advert showing the correct ID.

I'm good with either, but want to try to follow the newly decided format of using known model names as advertised by Bulova. 
I don't remember if all accutron ads to date which show this Day/Date function always include Day/Date in the ad model name?  OT will know.  If they do, then I can go for Day/Date without thinking it functions as a non-advertised catch-all (like set-o-matic, possibly a subset of chrono, and the pending Mystery Dial).
