SAVAGE~1966 BULOVA ACCUTRON ASTRONAUT

Regular price $699.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SUPER COOL 1966 BULOVA ACCUTRON ASTRONAUT MOUNTED ON A COMFY JB CHAMPION 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 MINTY STEEL AFFAIR WITH THE ENAMEL BLACK 24 HOUR GMT MARKINGS. SHE ROTATES WITH JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF FRICTION. 

 

  • DIAL: THIS ONE DEFINITELY HAS SOME STORIES TO TELL. CHECK OUT THAT VIBRANT SUNBURST SILVER DIAL WITH GORGEOUS PUFFY TRITIUM PLOTS WHICH MATCH PERFECTLY WITH THAT ON THOSE HANDS. THIS ONE DOES HAVE A NOTABLE BATTLE SCAR SCRATCH THAT RUNS ALONG THE LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE DIAL. I PERSONALLY THINK IT ADDS SOME COOL CHARACTER TO THE PIECE AND IS MUCH MORE OBVIOUS IN MY PHOTOS THAN IT IS ON THE WRIST. 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

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A PERIOD APPROPRIATE JB CHAMPION BRACELET . THIS ONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE A 7.5"+ WRIST. THIS ONE IS PRICED TO SELL AND IS A GREAT ENTRY LEVEL INTO ONE OF THE MOST COLLECTIBLE ACCUTRON MODELS EVER MADE
