Correct and original "Rare" Model # 3352 Chapter Ring version of the Accutron Spaceview model. From Bulova's USA Factories. Larger than many of the earlier Spaceviews.. So it's more contemporary in size. It has a very "Funky Spacey Vintage Dressy" look to it.
The first successful, and BEST, Electronic Timepiece! A Genuine Chapter Ring Spaceview Model.. NOT another FrankenSteined Parts Bin conversion! The only watch that MUST be in every Watch Lovers collection! Complete with Sweep Second Hand!
This has been adjusted to run "Dead on balls accurate, " as Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny) would say. Including the case and crystal... Friction points and setting crown lubricated to spec.
New #735 & 736 Battery and Case Gaskets installed. New Accucell 1.35v Battery. "Tuned/Phased" to run on the modern 1.35v Accucell battery.. Very nice, original, condition throughout..With very few gentle signs of use... This way you won't be afraid to add some of your own! "Numbers Matching" original movement, Coil Assembly and gorgeous correct and original Hand Set with the infamous red/orange Pylon smooth Sweep hand!
The "Bezel" is in very nice condition... /crown/battery cover, Chapter Ring and the correct/original not the aussie repops! The Coil colors are still vibrant and clean... This beauty must have spent far more time in the drawer than on the wrist! I installed a New Old Stock factory crystal on it...NOT the badly detailed aftermarket stuff. No need to alter and stress the electronics on this beauty... Adding stress and trapping the windings and limiting movement? 70% of the Coil issues are on the Battery side (due to owners using incorrect batteries back in the day).. When you can have the genuine article. What value does that have now... Much less in the future?
It'll be nothing more than what it is... "Spaceviews" that have been converted from watches that were never issued by Bulova as Spaceview models.. But the dials were removed and cheesy aftermarket crystals and hands were installed to feed the hungry "Spaceview" market. Look for the Chop Shops in GA, VA, PA, Seattle, Bulgaria and the UK. They spit them out, by the dozens every month, to unsuspecting buyers for profit...
Thereby ruining classic collectible watches by the thousands. Why feed the destructive beast?Invest in a Classic that you can be proud of... And that will retain value and save vintage Horology.
Help to foster the hobby... I use the Mobius products that were specified by Bulova and I install new gaskets. I work on these the Old School way. And I see no reason to alter these... It only decreases their value.
The goal is to get these right.. So that we can enjoy and preserve these Historic works of Horology/Engineering/Art. I send these out double boxed to protect them, with a multi page Instruction Set, an extra battery, insured, with Signature Confirmation Service..
I do these RIGHT becau. If you want cheap, badly thrown together FAKE CRAP at a "low" price point... I'm NOT your guy!There are plenty of people out there destroying classic Accutrons... Would you accept this behavior for cigars, cars, watches, etc. Be the ONLY one on YOUR block! No strap or bracelet is included on the watch.. Find yourself a strap, to your liking, to set this STUNNING BEAUTY OFF! I'm happy to answer any questions and help with strap or bracelet fitment..
