1973 AccuQuartz

Certainly an interesting piece. The accuracy of quartz with the charm of an Accutron hum and sweeping seconds hand? At least I believe that's how it works... The 2240 AccuQuartz movement moves at something like 341 1/3Hz as opposed to the 360Hz of a normal Accutron and seems to have resulted in a noticeably lower tone hum.

I feel I probably paid a bit too much for this watch, especially considering how dirty (disgusting) is was when I recieved it. But, I really wanted to own this little piece of odd Bulova history.

The one thing that really annoys me about this watch is that the applied indices are not very well placed. I don't believe this watch has been restored or refurbished, and the other similar 1973 AccuQuartz in the database here also looks like the indices are somewhat poorly placed. Is this normal? If it is, I won't worry about having it fixed and it won't annoy me quite as much.
