This is a great looking Circa 1960 Asymmetric 14K 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. The case design really makes this watch stand out, with football shape, and floating lugs. 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.
