Originally introduced on October, 25th, 1960, the Accutron Calibre 214 gained its strong reputation due to faultless precision, which resulted from its high frequency.
It incorporated a tuning-fork instead of a balance wheel and springs. The movement utilized a sweeping seconds hand as opposed to ticking.
Offered in a limited edition of 1000 pieces, the new Bulova Accutron extraordinary watch has borrowed its proportions and style from its acclaimed predecessor.
Reminiscent of the transistor radio, broadly used in the past, it represents an attractive blend of retro charm and most advanced technical characteristics.
The timepiece has adopted an imposing stainless steel case, which measures 42 mm in diameter. On the front side, it is assembled with a slightly domed sapphire crystal.
Beneath this high-grade glass there is an appealing green-painted dial, which opens to view the intricate workings of the Calibre Y214 movement. Characterized by matchless exactitude, it operates at a frequency of 360 Hz.
The circuit-board styled dial of the new Spaceview 214 watch exposes contrasting minute and hour-markers, dressed in white. The display is swept over by centralized hour, minutes and seconds hands, performed in the same color.
The timekeeper is mounted on an alligator leather strap. Each item is delivered in a wood and glass display case. It features a plague, marked with an individual number of the model.
The 2010 edition of the new Bulova Accutron watch is destined to become a coveted object for the most discerning collectors.
