1970 vintage BULOVA ACCUTRON WORLD TIME DEEP SEA 666 DIVE WATCH flare-link band
This is the less often seen world time bezel variant of the famous Bulova Accutron Deep Sea 666 tuning fork watch. This one is date stamped N0 for 1970. The dials and crystal are quite sharp and clear in person; keep in mind that the close-up photos are at 4X magnification. The internal rotating bezel used to set the World Time works perfectly. Just a couple of tiny dings on the sides of the massive case and one light opener scratch on back. Bulova-signed crowns for both setting and the rotating world time bezel. Overall, this watch is an imposing piece and this example is well preserved. Most important, this Accutron World Time Deep Sea 666 comes on an original Kreisler Stelux vintage large Accutron symbol flare-link bracelet in satin steel that matches the contour and matte finish of the case perfectly. Regular bracelets without the flare-link ends look too skinny on this big watch. The Stainless Steel case has not ever been polished, so the lug edges are still crisp and the case has its original satin finish. Matching bracelets like this now account for 1/3 to 1/2 the value of some vintage watches, and vintage collector's watches are always easier to trade or sell on when a watch has a matching branded bracelet. Plus, we have just installed a new battery and the watch comes with one extra nylon band of your choice from our 20mm selection included in the price.
Pick any tropic type unsigned vintage rubber dive band in 20mm from the Squinky store and get it at 1/2 off, if bought on the same day as this watch. The accuracy of the Accutron 2182 tuning fork movement inside this watch made it famous and this one is keeping good time. Has the day and date calendar display operated via quick-set. This watch is close to new looking for a 50-year-old watch.
