Bulova Accutron Space View 214, Cushion Case Chapter Ring Model, One Owner
VINTAGE 1970s BULOVA ACCUTRON SPACE VIEW 214 "CUSHION CASE CHAPTER RING" MODEL, ONE OWNER! I BOUGHT THIS WATCH NEW IN THE 1970s AT THE TOWN & COUNTRY SHOPPING CENTER IN COLUMBUS, OH NEAR BEXLEY, AT ZALES JEWELERS WHEN I WAS INTERVIEWING WITH IBM. WHEN I SAW THE DESIGN OF THIS WATCH, I JUST'HAD' TO GET ONE, AND I DID; I DO NOT REMEMBER WHAT IT COST (I DIDN'T CARE), AND I WAS YOUNG - NOT THINKING ABOUT THE FUTURE- AND I DID NOT EVEN'THINK' ABOUT KEEPING THE BOX OR THE RECEIPT: DUH! BACK THEN WHEN WE WERE YOUNG, THE FUTURE DIDN'T MATTER! SO, WHEN THE BATTERY RAN DOWN, I PUT THE WATCH IN MY JEWELRY BOX IN THE ATTIC (CIRCA 1979 OR 1980), AND IT SAT THERE FOR ABOUT 45-YEARS, OR SO. IN THE SUMMER OF 2021, WE WERE ATTEMPTING TO'CLEAN OUT THE ATTIC' AND I REDISCOVERED IT IN THE JEWELRY BOX: I HAD TOTALLY, I MEAN TOTALLY FORGOTTEN ALL ABOUT THE WATCH! IT TOOK ME A WHILE TO FIND A COMPANY THAT SERVICED THESE CLASSICS, AND I FOUND ONE IN CALIFORNIA, AND THEY DID A FABULOUS JOB ON THE WATCH: IT HUMS JUST LIKE IT DID IN THE 1970s AGAIN (THERE IS NO'TICKING' WITH THIS WATCH, RATHER IT SOUNDS LIKE AN ELECTRIC MOTOR WHEN YOU PUT IT UP TO YOUR EAR). HONESTLY, WHEN I BOUGHT IT, I DID NOT KNOW THAT IT WOULD BECOME A CLASSIC, OR THAT THE ASTRONAUTS USED IT IN SPACE BECAUSE IF ITS ACCURACY: SO, IF YOU'RE GOING UP WITH BEZOS, MUSK, OR BRANSON, THIS WILL DO!
