Wanted: Bulova Accutron Model 214 Tuning Fork Wristwatches, Parts, Accessories, Tools, and Ephemera.
I buy 214's in any condition, working or not. Also need Accutron watch crystals, dials, and watchbands with the Accutron tuning fork logo. If you have a 60's or 70's Accutron case or outer cardboard box, owners booklet, hang tag, battery hatch coin, facts booklet, service manual, etc., please let me know.
Please make sure that your watch is a model 214. The 214 is
set from the rear of the case (see photo) by lifting a spring loaded
"C" shaped lever. Also on the rear of the case there is a slotted
hatch cover which unscrews to access the battery. If the back of your watch is
similar to the one in the photo please contact me.
I purchased my Spaceview Accutron at the Ships Store while serving in the Navy aboard the USS Enterprise (CVAN-65) either in 1967 or 68. The date code is M6. I've worn it continuously since its purchase. The serial # is B04014. It has been repaired several times but wouldn't take anything for it. Just a comment from a very satisfied owner email@example.com

Just acquired a Accutron 214 which belonged to my great uncle. It is a 14K gold round case with scalloped lugs, and on the bottom of the second hand is shaped like a tuning fork. The watch band is also 14K gold. Shows M1 on the back. Unfortunately, the battery was left in the watch... The dial has spots that are slightly discolored. Could this be from the battery leaking somehow into the face of the watch? My email address is email@example.com Thank you.

I have a Bulova Accutron that belonged to my father. It has an 18k Heavy Gold Electroplate Bezel and a 10k Rolled Gold Plate back. It has a N0 date code and a C72231 code at the bottom on the back. The band is a braided metal gold color bracelet. The crown is located at the 4 o'clock position. The dial doesn't have any numbers, but has large blocks at 12, 3, 6 and 9 position with minor marks at the other hour locations. Can someone provide me with additional information on this watch? I think the date codes means it was made in 1970, but I don't know anything else about the watch. Thanks.

I bought a 1978 Accutron watch that has stopped. I has a new battery installed in it and it ran for a couple of months and stopped. It has a crown and a little push button right under the crown on the case. The watch looks brand new. It was 25 year award. It has a 10kgf back and a 10k filled fancy flex band. It has a big case 1 5/16 in dia. It had N8 on the back. I wonder if anyone knows the model? And I know parts are no longer available but if it is broken, can anyone suggest someone to repair it?
I am in the possesion of a bulova accutron watch 1968, 14k gold, the watch is in working order, I am inquiring as to value of this watch
I own a Bulova watch that a jeweler has informed me needs to have the coil replaced. I am attempting first find the exact style, and information on the watch, and then proceed to having proper repair done. The watch style fits the Spaceview style, but I am unable to find it in the Bulova archives. The watch is Gold with a round pearl dial with date. The dial is in the spaceview style with gold /laminated hands. "Accutron" is in gold raised letters at the top (middle) and the Accutron mark is at the bottom. On the back of the watch is stamped: Bulova -Patented -14kt Gold filled case -waterproof. In the bottom center are the serial numbers F14845, and below that in smaller type is stamped MB. If anyone could help with Any Information on this inherited heirloom, it will be greatly appreciated! I have researched throughout the Bulova website to no avail. My email is email@example.com Thank you.
I recently purchased an Accutron, used with no band with hopes of starting a collection... however it seems that my new watch needs some repairs, reguardless I have scoured the internet unsuccessfully looking for any indication of which model my Accutron is. Here is what I have to work with. The backing is stamped -BULOVA 14KT. GOLD CASE N9-, the dial is gold in color, there is no second hand -whether it has been removed or was just not included is beyond me- and perhaps, the most distinctive feature is the Ten-Sided case. ANY help with identifying this model or locating resources to do so would be greatly appreciated. Please send any response to firstname.lastname@example.org
Additional comment: I was mistaken in my earlier post, the case is actually twelve sided and the dial reads -Accutron Quartz Swiss 7105- Thanks again
Hello I have a Bulova Ladies 14k white gold watch it is a N8.I was wondering the value on this. Please email me at Lcacialli@stny.rr.com Thank you
I've got a really early Accutron m0 with serial number 113800. This is the earliest number I've seen posted on the net. There's a little star, the it reads "Stainless steel, 14k inlay" Under the pop-up adjusting stem it reads "waterproof, patented, 113800 m0" The case is gold in color, 34mm wide, perfectly round with hour markers (only the 12 is numbered) and then minute markes, one for every minute. The family friend who gave it to me years ago said it was a special order from Gumps, in San Francisco. Does anyone have any ideas on this? I've not seen a case that matches, but the dial matches that of the Alpha. email@example.com
HI, i have a accutron rr218-0, dated m7, serial number c73903. the screw back is marked...waterproof bulova stainless steel case patented. this watch is running and keeping time. the case and crystal are in excellent condition, and the crown is the original tuning fork crown. the dial as well is in "as new" condition with no sign of flaws, and is marked "swiss" below the 6 o'clock position. the dial is marked from 0-11 on the outer portion and 12-23 on the inner. watch is also eqipped with a date window at 3 o'clock. the unique aspect of this unit is the presence of a 2nd, orange, "time zone" hour hand. less than 5% or railroad accutrons possessed this feature making it a very rare timepiece. the watch has no band. the same watch (minus 2nd hour hand) in similar condition has sold online for 575.00usd. i have yet to see another WITH this 2nd hour hand. anyone that may have quetions or comments can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I am trying to find the model number of a Bulova Accutron watch made about 10 to 15 years ago. This watch had a round face and had an elongated window at the top of the face at the 12 position from which was displayed the day of the week. The date (of the month) was displayed elsewhere (probably at 3 position. This particular model had a black face, metal around the face was two-tone gold/silver and a bracelet-type band which I believe was also two-toned. If I remember correctly, the model number may have ended with the letter B, but can't remember for sure. If anyone is familiar with this model, please get back with me. Thanks very much, email@example.com Dave in Kansas City

Hey there, I was wondering if my Bulova Accutron is a tuning fork watch at all...? It is a diver which says Bulova Accutron, Quartz, 666 feet, t swiss t on the front whereas it has: Bulova N7 on the back. I'm suspecting it to be an "ordinary" quartz which would lead me to continue my hunt for a real hummer. Any help on this matter would be deeply appreciated. All the best David email@example.com

I have an Accutron watch and I need a little information for my own records. It is a 10KT back plate and gold bezel. It is marked "N4" which I am assuming is "1974" production model. It has a serial # of I124500 and has numerals around the dial, has a day/date window and a seconds sweeper hand and small luminous dots underneath each numeral on the dial. I have searched every Accutron website and GOOGLE images and have seen nothing like it. There are watches with very similar cases and most, if not all have the indice markers or roman numerals. This watch has standard "number" numerals. Is it worth alot? That is not of concern; what is of concern (for me) is that it seems to be an extremely rare dial face perhaps? Please help if possible.P.S.If it is a rare model, I would be happy to submit a picture of it for your firstname.lastname@example.org
