    So I know Bulova was an American company back then, based in New York. It seems Max Hetzel was Swiss and started in Biel, but then moved to New York. When the movements actually went into production, were they made in America? Were the cases, hands etc. made in America too?

    Newly acquired watch! Don't know much about this piece. Any info would be greatly appreciated đź‘Ť

    I will start by saying that I'm not in the immediate market for a new watch. I constantly waffle back and forth between "F*** it, let's go buy another watch" to "But my watches are great!" so god knows where this train of thought will end up. However, after seeing the new Hodinkee ad I can't...

    To any and all- I sent my 1966 family Accutron case and backing (no movement, thankfully) to Bob Piker for a crystal replacement July 21, with $65. He received the box and promptly cashed the check on July 27. He has stated in our email chain that he's replaced the crystal and mailed the...

    I've gone a bit strap crazy recently, buying many straps for all my unbraceleted watches. For the first of what will be a series of posts, here's what I came up with for my gold filled Accutron Space View with 18 mm lugs Pink and green NATO from Cheapest NATO Straps - $4.95 This is the most...

    This watch is like new, but has no box or papers. It’s a 2019 model, as indicated by B9 on the case back. This line is crazy thin and really accurate. I believe the movement is derived from the Precisionist and Accutron II movements. This example is pretty much flawless, and very stealthy, but I...

    WTB A Bulova Accutron II Surveyor - Ref 96B213. It can be used as long as there isn't any major damage or defects. Band doesn't have to be as pictured. I have an address that the watch can be shipped to in the US, if it cannot be shipped to Canada.

    During the late 1950s, the human race developed a taste for building huge, powerful, rockets, and launching them into outer space. Exciting stuff, for sure, but made much more exciting, when on April 12 1961, Soviet Cosmonaut Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin was strapped into one of these rockets...

    Hi everyone, I came across this Bulova Astronaut M6 at a garage sale a few years back. It doesn't get much wrist time and in researching it to sell I have been unable to come across another Astronaut that has the Accuton logo AND the written Bulova text on the clasp. I've seen them with either...

    I've traded services with a fellow watchmaker, had him fix my Speedmaster for free and he asked me if I could list some of his watches to help fund his wedding. Him being my mentor I said yes on the spot. All the watches I'll be posting over the next few days are his and were serviced within the...

    Looking for either of these, preferably the Omega (Chronometer certified if possible), in working and fairly good cosmetic condition for a reasonable price. Please do let me know, thanks WUS!

    BULOVA ACCUTRON II 262 kHz MILITARY FIELD WATCH I am the original owner of this increasingly hard to find watch. It was purchased by me from a watch kiosk at Glendale Galleria in November 2018, and has been lightly worn since then. Cosmetic condition is excellent with no visible issues...

    Hi there, I bought a Bulova Accutron II Surveyor (Green dial) when I first started watch collecting going back a few years now. I really love the watch, despite the battery not lasting longer than 2.5 years... The original leather is looking a bit tired now, and I'm trying to figure out what...

    Up for grabs today is the infamous Bulova Accutron Spaceview. If you know it you know it. Bought less than a month ago from a Georgia watch dealer that specializes in space views. Simply put, it doesn't get enough wrist time and I will miss the perfect sweep of the seconds hand but I want to...

    SOLD I’m selling my like new Bulova Murren chronograph, model 63C115. This is part of their Accu-Swiss line, which used be known as Accutron. Horrible name, but actually a very solid piece at a bargain price. The movement is an automatic, Swiss made, Sellita SW500, which I believe to be a ETA...

    Hello, I am looking to buy a Bulova Spaceview. Prefer SS. I would prefer to stay away from conversions. Thanks for looking!
  19. Accutron, Bulova, and Caravelle
    I am lucky. I own a watch that I absolutely love. The design is fantastic, it has a splash of colour that makes it stand out, it is very accurate and it is just the right size for my wrist. At one point I owned 31 watches, but this one has taken over and I am left with just two after...

    Please see my next post on why I started this thread. Hopefully the information I pull together here will be useful and possibly save some future WIS some time when it comes to Accutrons. I'll keep this post updated as people reply with new info. A Very Quick Summary of the Accutron...
