  • CASE:  SUPER SVELTE ALL STEEL CASE IN NEAR MINT CONDITION.  WATCH MEASURES A LARGE 40.5mm ACROSS CASE NOT COUNTING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN AT 4 BY 44mm LUG TO LUG. ALL THE ORIGINAL FACTORY FINISHES ARE INTACT, AND THIS ONE IS RAZOR SHARP.  THIS THING IS A TOTAL TRIP. WITH ITS FUNKY ASYMETRICAL DESIGN AND IMPOSING THICKNESS, THIS IS A STATEMENT PIECE, FOR SURE. REALLY UNBELIEVABLE NOS CONDITION WITH THE ORIGINAL STICKER ON THE CASEBACK.

 

  • DIAL: JUST ABSOLUTELY WOW!! REALLY KILLER 2-TONE DIAL WITH THE CENTER SEGMENT BEING MORE OF A SILVERY-WHITE MATTE COLOR WITH THE OUTER PORTION HOUSING HAVING A METALLIC SUNBURST SILVER FINISH. CHECK OUT THAT SUBTLE PATINA ON THE CENTER SEGMENT WHICH IS JUST A LOVELY ADDED VINTAGE BONUS. I LOVE THOSE BURGUNDY-TIPPED HANDS AND THOSE THIN SHARP APPLIED MARKERS. SO MUCH TO LOVE ON THIS DIAL. ALL VIEWED UNDER A SCRATCH-FREE FLAT GLASS CRYSTAL. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS HELMET RUNS ON A HIGH-GRADE IN-HOUSE BULOVA-ACCUTRON 218-1 TUNING FORK MOVEMENT; A TECHNOLOGY BULOVA DEVELOPED FOR EARLY NASA FLIGHT INSTRUMENTS USED ON SPACE-SHUTTLES IN THE 60s.  EVERYTHING IS WORKING FANTASTIC ON THIS ONE. DATE IS QUICKSET WITH THE CROWN PUSHED IN. A NEW BATTERY WAS INSTALLED RECENTLY. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN BUT THIS ONE IS RUNNING VERY SMOOTHLY AND KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME.

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A SPORTY DARK BROWN HANDMADE WRISTWATCHME FLAT BROWN STRAP WHICH FITS THIS ONE BEAUTIFULLY. ALSO INCLUDED IS THE ORIGINAL CORFAM CROC ACCUTRON STRAP WITH THE ORIGINAL SIGNED TANG BUCKLE. IF THIS WATCH WASN'T COOL ENOUGH, YOU'VE GOT THE FULL-SET INNER/OUTER BOX, PAPERS, AND 2 HANG-TAGS. THIS IS JUST AN INCREDIBLE COLLECTOR'S SET. I FEEL LIKE THIS WATCH MUST HAVE HERALDED IN THE FUNKY 70s. SO MUCH MAJOR WILD STYLE ON THIS ONE. THIS IS FOR THE SERIOUS ACCUTRON COLLECTOR
