Additional Information

This is a watch I received from my grandfather. I do not want to open it up until I know exactly what I am doing. The back of the case is stamped with Bulova, 14KT Gold Filled Case, Water Resistant, J965360, N3. I do not know much about this watch other than I think it is a 1973 Accutron model 221.

Regards,

Jeff

This model likely houses the 2182 day and date movement, and is the 'F' variant with silver dial. There was also a similar 'G' variant with champagne color dial.

Hello Jeffrey, welcome to myBulova. Looks like your grandfather had a very discriminating taste in watches, he left you some very nice ones. I'm a huge fan of heirloom watches, I think they're the best. thanks for sharing them.
