Bulova Accutron Astronaut

Post by koimaster » January 17th 2021, 12:50am

So many Bulova Accutron watches up for grabs cause the effect that collectors tend to overlook them quickly. Even finer models such as the Bulova Accutron Astronaut. What a mistake! Well, a mistake you can avoid.

I made that mistake too. I have seen so many Accutron Spaceview models that it resulted in pushing it lower and lower on my wishlist. It was on the list for sure, but I failed multiple times to find a few hours to dig deeper into its story. All that changed one evening when I opened the History of a modern wrist watch book by Pieter Doensen on a page that featured the copy of a tuning fork Swiss Patent 312290.

Not a bad review.
You notice how those spade hands look white in the black and white adverts? This looks more like they are tipped with lume in colour, and the seconds hand can be seen to be silver, not white like in faked examples.

Lines where the lume paint comes to.
