Regular price $1,199.99 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SUPER COOL 1967 BULOVA ACCUTRON ASTRONAUT MOUNTED ON ITS ORIGINAL JB CHAMPION BULLET BRACELET. 

  • CASE: SPACE-AGE NEAR MINT CONDITION STAINLESS STEEL CASE MEASURING A SUBSTANTIAL 38mm ACROSS BEZEL BY 41mm LUG TO LUG. THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL IS REMARKABLE ON THESE. THE CONICAL SHAPE OF THE CASE HOW IT TAPERS FROM THE BEZEL DOWN TO THE CASEBACK IS TOTALLY GENIUS. SPEAKING OF BEZELS, LOOK AT THAT INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH STEEL AFFAIR WITH THE ENAMEL BLACK 24 HOUR GMT MARKINGS. SHE ROTATES WITH JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF FRICTION. 

 

  • DIAL: THIS ONE DEFINITELY IS GORGEOUS . CHECK OUT THAT VIBRANT SUNBURST SILVER DIAL WITH GORGEOUS PUFFY TRITIUM PLOTS WHICH MATCH PERFECTLY WITH THAT ON THOSE HANDS. SOME UNDERSTATED VINTAGE TONING GIVES THIS A SPECIAL SOUL GLOW. YOU GOTTA LOVE THAT LUMED ARROW TIPPED GMT HAND ON THIS GUY. SO COOL. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS SPACE-DUDE RUNS ON THE FAMED TUNING FORK BATTERY OPERATED ACCUTRON 214.  TIME IS SET BY LIFTING THE RING ON THE CASEBACK. SERVICE IS UNKNOWN BUT THIS IS A STRONG RUNNER AND HAS BEEN A DAILY WEARER FOR ME. NEW BATTERY WAS JUST INSTALLED. 

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON THE ORIGINAL JB CHAMPION BULLET BRACELET. THIS ONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE AN 8”WRIST. THESE ARE BECOMING MORE AND MORE COLLECTIBLE AS THE WORD IS GETTING OUT REGARDING THEIR MILITARY AVIATION HISTORY. THIS IS A GORGEOUS EXAMPLE OF THE “BLONDE” ASTRO, AND HAS BEEN ONE FROM MY PERSONAL COLLECTION WHICH I AM SAD TO PART WITH.
