This is a great looking Circa 1961 All Platinum Bulova Accutron watch that sets (from the back), and runs great, and keeps excellent time, and is Fully Serviced.  It has the early 214 model movement that gives the case a really clean look, with no visible crown.  Likely, fewer than a dozen of these watches were made, since the original price in 1961 was reported to be $2500, which translates to around $20,000 in today's money.  This platinum example would be the crown jewel of an Accutron collection.

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.

Guaranteed to arrive in fine working order, or your money back, or return for a refund for any reason within 7 days if not satisfied.  I am an NAWCC (National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors) member and stand behind what I sell.
