There are a few "what the fuck" parts of this revoo, which have me a wee bit pissed. Let's see...
The Bulova Accutron is a high-frequency quartz with a smooth sweeping second hand.
Ummm, no, the original Accutrons weren't quartz
, they were tuning fork
movements. While the oscillator in any quartz is tuning fork-shaped, the Accutron is not the same as a quartz-controlled stepper motor movement.
But for a short time, they also made self-winding mechanical watches with the Accutron name.
They did so since, like, the 1990s. If not earlier than that.
This Accutron is one of the Swiss-powered versions of the Bulova Accutron.
It is, in fact, the sort of Accutron that's not really an Accutron. More, like, milking the reputation of the Accutron name. To call it a version
Accutron is implying that they're related - it's like claiming them to be two siblings from a different father each, while they're also from different mothers...
It has the ETA 2824 movement instead of the high-frequency quartz and is, therefore, more comparable with a “normal” mechanical watch.
Not only is it comparable with a normal mechanical watch, it fucking is
a normal mechanical watch.
self-winding ETA 2824 movement (running at 28800 bph or 8 ticks per second) with about 28 hours power reserve
If that's not a typo, it's in a dire need of a watchmaker's intervention.
As for the length of this revoo - a "long-term" review this short is nearly as bad as a Donkey wankfest.
