MEGA FUNK~1972 ACCUTRON

MEGA FUNK~1972 ACCUTRON "COFFIN" 218 TUNING FORK DAY/DATE

Regular price $455.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SUPER RAD SHARP 1972 GOLDEN ACCUTRON 218 TUNING FORK GENTS WATCH WITH SUPERB ROMAN NUMERAL DIAL, GHASTLY COFFIN SHAPED CASE, AND ORIGINAL BRACELET.

 

  • CASE: SLEEK AND SEXY GOLD PLAQUE COFFIN SHAPED CASE MEASURING A LARGE 38.5mm ACROSS WIDEST POINT ON THE CASE NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN. CASE IS IN FANTASTIC CONDITION. ALL THE ORIGINAL BRUSHED FINISH IS INTACT ON THE TOP WITH CLEAR DEMARCATIONS TO THE POLISHED SIDES. SOME MILD GOLD WEAR ON THE UNDERSIDE OF THE CASE EDGES, BUT ON THE WRIST, THIS THING LOOKS PRACTICALLY NEW.

 

  • DIAL: CLASSIC EARLY 70S ACCUTRON SWANK ON DISPLAY HERE. I LOVE THAT SUBLIME CHAMPAGNE DIAL AND THOSE STELLAR APPLIED BLACK/GOLD ROMAN NUMERAL MARKERS WHICH GAVE THIS ONE SOME SERIOUS MOJO. A NICE PAIR OF GOLD DAGGER HANDS TIE THE LOOK TOGETHER HARMONIOUSLY. 

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS HANDSOME FELLA RUNS ON A BULOVA/ACCUTRON BASED 218 TUNING FORK MOVEMENT WHICH IS HUMMING ALONG WELL.  IT'S BEEN A STRONG RUNNER FOR ME AND HAS KEPT GREAT TIME. 

 

  • WATCH COMES ON ITS ORIGINAL BULOVA/ACCUTRON SIGNED BRACELET WHICH LOOKS EXTRA BOSS ON THIS DUDE. BRACELET CAN ACCOMODATE UP TO A 7.75" WRIST. THIS IS SUCH A CLASSY PIECE WITH JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF 70s FUNK TO GO ALONG. IN MANY WAYS, ACCUTRON WAS THE BULOVA SUB-BRAND WHICH REALLY LED IN DESIGN AND STYLE IN THE EARLY TO MID 70S. THIS IS A GREAT EVERYDAY PIECE WHICH RIDES THE LINE BETWEEN ELEGANCE AND SPORTINESS.
