Accutron Deep Sea c.1970

0.00

The "original" Deep Sea Accutron is one of the most well known of the tuning fork models that Bulova ever produced. The black & red Coke colors are simply iconic, alongside the already produced Oceanographer model of the same color scheme. Some Deep Sea models came with the more classic dauphine hands, while this model is one of the subsets that shares a hand style with the Accutron Astronaut watches -- plus the well-known, stylized red arrow sweep second hand.

At 40mm wide, this was one of the wider models Bulova offered at the time, but its fairly thin design and tucked lugs makes for a much more comfortable wear for its size. Combine that with the 18mm lug with and you have excellent wrist presence without the heft and bulk that many diver models in the '70s soon acquired.

This model comes on a Prospect "bullet" style bracelet with Accutron-signed clasp, a new genuine Bulova crystal, and is keeping great time. The Deep Sea is a watch you'll unequivocally want in your watch box, and this specimen is no exception.
