We have a similar watch ID'ed as 1975 "Accutron Day & Date" here.  We also have a similar tuning fork shaped case (100th anniversary) here, but it's 1975 Accuquartz Centenary" ID is based on the movement being the accuquartz, the "quartz icon" on the dial, and a French ad.  
Many folks have been calling subject watch "100th Anniversary", which is fine with me, however I think it's a nicname and is not based on any vintage ads to date.  Hope someone can refresh my memory and find ad ad w/ 100th Anniversary used as model (or model series) name.

I'd good with 1975 "Accutron Day and Date" with the nicname "100th Anniversary" in the variant field.
We can change the first record linked above to reflect this "100th Anniversary" in variant.

Or my second choice would be simply 1975 "Accutron Day and Date"

The watch needs to be identified as more than just a Day/Date. Btw, the Ladies version of the 100th Anniv. is pretty rare. Also, notice lack of a date stamp on the outside of case back. Date code not found on case backs for 1975 100th Anniv. models.

Very rare, but is the name the Centenary like in Will's linked 1975 watch above?The ad says so.

Bobbee, the ad was in French and some of us think the Centenary name was regiospicific to that market, so in USA it was probably called "100th Anniversary", if only by nicname if not ad.

They sem to have different movement thus different models. All have the '100' in common for the Centenary, So for this model I'm good with Accutron Day/Date "Centenary"

An exact model ID may present itself in the future.

Thank you all for your interest.

My question is the following.

How many of these watches were produced?

Why are these watches do not have the internet (for example. EBay)?

Virtually zero information on the model?

There was quite a few, as I see them often.  They are not rare, but they are not common.  I'd say they are uncommon.

 I sound like I should be running for public office LOL.  I did't really say much, just a bunch of vague BS.....  I'd probably get elected too :)

Agree on "Centenary" designation to Accutron Day/Date. Also agree that the three should be named the same.

Is it an idea that the description of "Centenary" is designated to this years celebration of 100 years of Bulova rather than anniversary? By the meaning of centenary it is 100 years rather than anniversary of what - 25 (silver), 40 (ruby) -50 (golden), 60 (diamond) and so on. The problem will be when Bulova hits 200 yrs
