1977 Bulova Accutron ref.nr 21370
Nice ad find; looks to be a match. Not sure we are using the reference number, so I'll call it an Accutron Calendar.
is the question whether Bulova Calendar or Accutron Calendar :)
Like all other tuning fork movement watches we have, I'm thinking just Accutron Calendar?
probably yes, in the database we have a single Bulova Calendar
You nailed it Jabs. I'm good with Accutron Calendar.
1977 Accutron Calendar, nice job on the advert match
Hey! Thanks everyone.
The watch pictured was a high school graduation gift from my parents in 1977 (the year of manufacture) it is engraved on the back. I will post this soon.
Over the years, the bracelet was lost and I paid no attention to the watch....but kept it.
Well, I kind of got the watch bug.....longer story. So I purchased a back removal wrench, a pin press and a springbar tool. I replaced the battery in the Accutron and WOW it ran. It has gained about 15 seconds in two months. Pretty good according to a watchmaker I met.
I found an exact match on ebay for about 250.00 (double the retail in 77!) and it is on the way. Should be here in a day or so.
I will post photos of the complete piece when it is all together.
And thanks again. Very cool website!
