My name is Brad and I have just recently picked up a Bulova Accutron Deep Sea watch.
I would greatly appreciate any information anyone may be able to give me regarding this watch as I am a total novice. I understand it is a 1969 model but the M9 on it. The case has 702 on it, the inside on the watch says 2181 and has a 218 battery.
My first question please is what type of battery should I replace it with? and I have heard that replacing it with a 344 battery the voltage is slightly different and can harm the watch? T? or F? And suggestions on where to get a battery?
2. I can't seem to find this particular watch anywhere on the internet with the orange hands? Do you think the hands could have been changed? And this style of watch seems to be hard to find?
Again all information would be greatly appreciated. Also is the leather strap a stock item for this or could have been changed to leather?
And not sure if I am allowed to ask this or not but possible value of this watch?
