In the second part on the topic of quartz watches (part 1 – here) to go to the new edition of Bulova Accutron. Actually, at this point, I wanted to introduce the Bulova Moon Watch. But the clock was so sought after, before and after the BASELWORLD 2016 that you blogger-and until recently had to put off even buyer-to a later date. This is not bad, because on my Bulova visit to BASELWORLD, a further very interesting quartz clock is noticed. From the legendary and new
issues Accutron series. Vintage lovers surely know these quartz watches, some without dial of which come out and carry the nickname “Spaceview”. Apparently much in demand on these vintage watches are ebay (affiliate link) with the so-called tuning fork movement. At least talk called prices by over 800 euros for it. It is even more expensive an Accutron table clock – as long as you do find one. (Those who are interested in the history, which is more in this Ablogtowatch article ).
Bulova Accutron II-new edition in the form of pillows
Slightly cheaper but you come to the reprints from the House of Bulova-both the Spaceview models than with classic dial (see the overview here). And that goes also for the Accutron II model REF. 96B 253, which I have chosen me for this article. The price is 429 Euro (MSRP).
The highlights in brief: Beautiful retro look thanks to a housing in the “Pillow form”, subtle color choice (in this combination as a vintage dress watch goes through), domed Crystal, offset Crown on “4 o’clock” and a high-frequency quartz movement for very high accuracy.
Is the watch perfect? Almost, because even at this hour you must consider that she comes from a very reputable manufacturer while-you get but still no luxury watch, similar to that seen by the relevant brand for less than 500 euros. Just as an example: the watch glass is beautifully arched and gets a plus for it in any case. But made of mineral glass (instead of expensive Sapphire) and thus is more vulnerable to scratches and damage. Want to say: with sapphire glass this watch certainly would have cost more (estimated: up to 200 euros more). And with mechanical work yet once again. I type so that Bulova wanted to consciously not to exceed a certain threshold of pain for these three pointer and quartz watches.
Bottom line: The new Bulova models named Accutron II are all worth a look – for all those who want to love retro design and not necessarily to pay (higher) prices for the “real” vintage models. In the model presented here especially the successful design and the comfortable size (diameter 40 mm) I liked. And a little remark: the Bulova logo, which you can see in this watch on the “12”, symbolizes the above-mentioned “tuning fork” (also known as “tuning fork”) has always been. I don’t know how it’s done you so, but I find the logo very successful. I, you could also completely omit the signature “Bulova”. The manufacturer sees that certainly unlike 🙂
