Additional Information

I have been a Bulova collector for more than a decade and this is the first one I have seen made of Sterling Silver, not to mention SS and 14K Gold. Weighs 4.8 ounces and the body is 35x42mm in size. 2281 movement inside is in perfect condition. I would like to know whether this model has been seen before. Thanks, Steve

Very nice!  I've never seen in Sterling / 14k gold trim.  I think that's what it says on the outside case back photo?
I'm sure the band is original.  Are there any halmarks or stampings on the band?  Please and thanks for adding this great watch.

No, there are no hallmarks anywhere. The inside of the caseback mentions how to install the batteries and mentions REF B764. Also in red ink it has a star symbol and 704 and in blue ink smudged, it may say B54 or 554. It is an awesome watch with no noticable wear to the silver or the gold. Full bracelet goes over 8 inches and links cannot be removed. I can add or send more photos I just took of the insides if you want. Steve

Very stylish looking watch. Silver was used during the "big war" but no where else I am aware of.

Hi Steve, welcome to myBulova. I think YOUR Bulova is wonderful. I have never seen anything like it. This is totally a 70's watch, glitzy, silver, gold and fabulous. My father, the banker would have worn this one with his black three piece pin striped suit. I don't see anything in our advert dB to match it up with but we'll keep our fingers crossed we find something someday.

For now, Unknown. I love it!

A beautiful unknown model name from me, but I'm still searching too.

Great looking digital watch. I'm not a big fan of these, soooo 1970s :-) but this one I actually like the look of.

Bulova Accuquartz Digital gets my vote. Variation/model unknown.

Found this just now.

Wow. The photo of the textured gold one is getting close to looking like what I have. Thanks.

And check that price tag out. The cheapest Accuquartz was $250 when they first came out.
