Additional Information

I have a stainless steel 1974 Accutron 2182. Would like to know more about it (model, etc.) but cannot find any adverts to go off of. I have found similar case shapes in the Accutron database but nothing quite the same. I am concerned about the face - the roman numerals are printed onto the face which is NOT standard for Accutrons I've seen. Not sure if I have an original or a Franken-tron.

Thanks!

Graham

I think I found it in the 1974 - 1975 Linebook192.

I looked at that on too and noted the tuning fork below the center pinion but I come back to agree, it's probably the same watch.

I think the dial is original, Bulova didn't do too many "roman" dials

I can't believe how quickly you found that! Thank you so much guys, I really appreciate it! I wonder if the stainless band was a later addition from the original sharkskin band? Thanks again!
