This is a great looking "Up-Down" Bulova Accutron watch that sets, and runs great, and keeps excellent time. A full service has been completed on this watch as well. You don't find these old watches in such fine shape often.
Hamilton felt it was in a race to release the first battery powered watch. Little did they know that the Accutron was to be released several years after the Hamilton Electric. The Accutron was a complete departure from traditional watches, and benefited from lessons learned from Hamilton's hasty release of the Electric. The history of these watches makes them great conversation pieces, and great additions to an electric watch collection.
