Additional Information

This is a 1963 Accutron I received from my grandfather. I do not want to take the back off until I know exactly what I am doing. I do not know much about it. I believe this is just a basic straight lugs with a basic 214 dial. The back is stamped Bulova, Waterproof, K54128, M3, 10KT Gold Filled, Patented.

Regards,

Jeff

This watch looks to be a match to the variant '401', as seen in this ad. You are correct that this would have the 214 model movement. If you ever get the caseback removed you should see a case stamp with the number 2387.

Here are some more photos. I took these to a watchmaker yesterday to open. He said they look and felt like they had never been opened before...
