The humming smooth sweeping electronic tuning fork 218D movement is running steadily and dependably. Even after 50+ years these unique watches continue to fascinate. This collectible beauty is ready to wear and add to your watch collection.Note: The watch has been stopped for photos to show the full details of dial and hands. It will be running when you receive it. I carefully select, inspect, and monitor for proper operation all watches before offering them for sale.
However I do not guarantee the degree of accuracy or longevity of a vintage watch for which I don't have service history. Please note the size of this fine vintage watch in the description section above. A NOTE ABOUT VINTAGE ACCUTRONS: Vintage electronic tuning fork Bulova Accutrons are sought after by watch enthusiasts for their unique technology, styling, variety, history, and collectible appeal. The electronic tuning fork watch movement was a development of the beginning of the Space Age and the invention of transistors, capacitors, miniature batteries, and other electronic advances. The introduction of the Accutron in 1960 was a revolution in watch design.
Accutrons were the most accurate timepieces available for sale to the public and guaranteed by Bulova to run with an accuracy of +/- one minute per month. The watches were manufactured from 1960 to 1977 when they were replaced by quartz movements which cost less to manufacture. The accuracy of their vintage electronic/mechanical movement has been surpassed by modern high quality quartz movement watches.
The Accutron 214, 218, 219, and 224 series movements are remarkably durable: I have seen 50+ year old examples that are still running with little or no servicing, only an annual battery replacement. However the movements have mechanical gear trains that operate most efficiently when they have been disassembled, cleaned, lubricated, and timed by a trained watch repair person. If however, like many of us watch enthusiasts, you enjoy the fascinating history, technology, and styling (and of course, the HUM) of vintage Accutrons you should own one or more.For more information on vintage electronic tuning fork Accutrons I suggest that you visit this website: THE ACCUTRON WATCH PAGE (Search this title for web address) WARNING: VINTAGE ACCUTRON WATCH COLLECTING MAY BE HABIT FORMING!
