In 1971, the Bulova accutron was 11 years old. Any early thoughts that it was nothing than a gimmick had long been dismissed.. It had nowhere near replaced the mechanical, Bulova themselves had a complete range of mechanicals that they marketed alongside the accutron and, in fact, outsold it. But the accutron had established itself firmly in its small niche of the marketplace as a reliable and extremely accurate watch.
The accutron movement changed little during its existence. This calibre 2181 was released in 1967 and featured a date and stem and crown for setting.
The styles did change with the fashion and here we have a watch of its era: rounded rectangular case with squared off hands and yet it manages to still be elegant.
Not only that but this example is in perfect condition and was presented to me in its original box: a rareity
A very pleasant and unique watch.
