RARE~1975 100th ANNIVERSARY BULOVA-ACCUTRON SPACEVIEW

Regular price $999.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SUPER RAD 1975 LARGE CASED 100TH ANNIVERSARY SPACEVIEW IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. 

  • CASE: BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL ALL STEEL TUNING FORK SHAPED CASE MEASURING A BEEFY 38mm ACROSS CASE BY 42mm LUG TO LUG. ALL THE ORIGINAL FINISHES ARE INTACT ON THIS ONE WITH SHARP LINES PRESENT. THE CASEBACK DOES INDICATE "GOLD ELECTROPLATE BEZEL" WHICH MAKES ME THINK IT MIGHT BE A REPLACEMENT ONE FROM THE MORE OFTEN SEEN YELLOW GOLD VARIANT OF THIS WATCH. I JUST LOVE THE CRAZY ASYMETRICAL SHAPE. THIS IS A THICK AND HEAVY WATCH AND IS SO MUCH FUN TO WEAR.

 

  • DIAL: I SUPPOSE YOU COULD SAY THAT THIS ONE REALLY DOESN'T HAVE MUCH OF A DIAL....IT'S ALL GUTS. HOWEVER, THE GREY CHAPTER RING IS IN MINTY FRESH CONDITION WITH THE TRITIUM IN WELL PRESERVED CONDITION. THOSE BOLD WHITE HANDS LOOK AWESOME, AND THE ORANGE SWEEPER REALLY CATCHES YOUR EYE AS IT SMOOTHLY TRAVELS AROUND THE DIAL. THE ORIGINAL BULOVA ACCUTRON SIGNED CRYSTAL IS IN CLEAN SHAPE WITH SOME MINOR SHALLOW SCRATCHES. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS HANDSOME SPACE-DUDE RUNS ON THE FAMED TUNING FORK BATTERY OPERATED ACCUTRON 214.  TIME IS SET BY LIFTING THE RING ON THE CASEBACK. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN ON THIS ONE, BUT IT'S BEEN RUNNING LIKE A CHAMP FOR ME OBSERVED OVER WEEKS OF ON/OFF WRIST WEAR.

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A SUPER NICE WORN AND WOUND MINIMALIST STRAP WHICH LOOKS KILLER ON THIS GUY. THESE WERE ONLY MADE IN A LIMITED RUN FOR 1 YEAR BACK IN 1975 TO COMMEMORATE THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF BULOVA. THE CASE WAS FASHIONED TO RESEMBLE THE TUNINIG FORK SHAPE OF THE ACCUTRON EMBLEM. THIS IS A RARE WATCH TO BEGIN WITH AND MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THEY ONLY MADE 1/10TH OF THESE IN STEEL. THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE AND JUST AN ABSOLUTELY SUPER COOL WATCH WITH SOME GNARLY WRIST PRESENCE.
