Two guesses.
1. A 1974 AMC watch with no affiliation to American Motors
2. An AMC or Jeep Chronograph with appropriate American Motors Branding.

Yep. That is it. :-! Congrats to Restless and Ulackfocus.

This one is mine, in all of its 1974 glory...

Original strap is important.





I think I need to wear one of these with it :-d



A bit of info from the web...

Q: I have an Accutron that looks like it has wood inlaid in the bezel and the band? Is this right?

A: Yes. It sure is. What you have there is another Accutron oddity – the Woody. What was nice about the 218's is that in the late 60's and early 70's, Bulova got a lot trendier with case, band and dial styles. The result is a lot of very unusual watches that really fit the times they were made in. The "Woody" as it is known to collectors was made with a band by Duchess, USA. The bezel and band are actually inlaid with genuine wood. It looks like mahogany to me – dark, reddish, grainy wood. There was also a ladies 230 Woody that featured an identically styled band by Duchess but no wood around the bezel. They are rare and interesting and lots of fun to wear.
