Bulova 1976 Accutron Calendar
The collection is starting to grow. I was recently at an antique store and saw this little gem in the case. The watches owner was also at the store and informed me that this watch didn't work and that he would give it to me for $20.00.
I asked him what he thought might be wrong with the watch and he informed me that it just didn't run. He also informed me that he tried a 394 battery. OK now i'm curious! So I buy the watch. I immediately went to my jeweler and she checked it over, informing me that the inside case showed servicing about 2 years ago. She put in the correct 344 battery, gave it a tap and it's been running ever since with about a + - 2sec a day accuracy.
