Accutron Spaceview c.1970

0.00

One of the most iconic mid-century watches that Bulova made was their Accutron line; Of those Accutrons, few are as well-known and celebrated as the Spaceview.

With the tuning fork technology nailed down by about 1959, the turn of the century saw the Bulova 214 powered Accutron line introduced to the world. Spaceviews were initially created as a sales promotional pieces, but it didn't take long for the supply requests to begin rolling in on these fascinating pieces. Between factory-produced models and dealer-supplied conversion kit models, these have garnished a demand that hasn't faded over the years.

This chapter ring model (the ring that you see circling the inner diameter of the watch crystal) is arguably THE most, desirable model -- as you can guarantee this was originally designed to be a Spaceview indeed.

If you're enamored by a dial-free, skeleton style watch...you won't get much better with more history than this.
