WOW here is a real early ad for the Accuquartz watches.    This is from July 1970.  The ladies diamond watch must be a misprint at $50000!  Clearly that should have been $5000.  Either way are real cool early Accutron ad only 7 months after Seiko introduced the ASTRON.

Well I stand corrected.   Here is another article noting the price was indeed $50,000 for the diamond brooch quartz watch.  That is $341K in current dollars!  No words ....

I don't think the watch is the correct match in the ad. I have the same ad snipet and 29-A, a calendar only, goes to this watch:

interesting ad showing a promotional tie in for the movie The Neptune Factor to win a Bulova Sea Hunter. The only reference I see for a Sea Hunter is a Caravelle but putting this out there as you never know.

This is a really cool 1973 ad from the Italian magazine Radiocorriere showing a portable Accutron hand held watch.  It mentions Skylab.  Maybe one of our Italian member can summarize what this was.  Not sure if it was called "SkyLab" or was used on board Skylab.  Either way very cool.
