Same here, Will. Stunning case condition Peter, did it come like this or did you have it polished? Looks like NOS to me!

Beautiful Accuquartz! I have two in that case style. The Accuquartz has become my most favorite "model" of Accutron because of it being the last caliber designed by Bulova and it's unique blend of two technologies. Also, since most folks concentrate on 214 and 218 models, the Accuquartz has been somewhat overlooked resulting in lower prices many times. As in all other calibers of Accutron movements, there were many case and dial variations. There was even a 100th Anniv. Accutron produced with the Accuquartz movement - quite rare!

Oliverb  A hundredth anniversary of what?  If you remember. Perhaps 100th Anniv. of Bulova doing something?  That would be a stretch, but I'm curious.  Thanks

For what its worth, I have run across and a sale for a NOS case that has a Bulova hang tag listing it as a "J" model
