Accutron 1971 "TV Dial", fresh from restoration.

Post by mrneddles on Mon 03 Oct 2011, 9:22 pm

Before, seller's pic. On an afterthought, ill-fitting Bulova bracelet.


A picture of the original add, note the strap. I have a 16mm Tuning fork buckle, so may seek out a rally strap down the road.


A few specs:
218 tuning fork movement
37mm East to West
Quick change date, which is apparently a rare feature for this movement/era.

I had the movement serviced, the dial cleaned, crystal polished. Put it on mesh. Spent 20 minutes shooting it, and this is the best one that tells it all.


Thanks for looking.

The face lift came out beautifully. Love the hum of a tuning fork watch.
Wear that one in good health. Thanks for sharing. Toasting

What a fantastic job! It's beautiful. I've never owned a tuning fork movement but am very interested in obtaining one someday. Congratz on a great restoration.
