The very best you'll find... (call 309-287-2627)

 

Updated last...8/15/17

 

Hello fellow Accutron collectors. Below you will find an assortment of some of the best Accutron Spaceview and Accutron Astronaut watches available on the web. I'm damn proud of my repair and restoration capabilities, so I now offer a one year warranty on all of my Accutrons. Of course you can find less expensive Accutron Spaceview and Accutron Astronaut watches on Ebay, and if you are lucky they might even work...for awhile. Factor in the cost of a complete restoration with the purchase price and the cost for replacement parts and you will likely end up paying more for your Accutron than one of the watches below will cost you, not to mention a lengthy (up to 6 months) turnaround time. There are only a couple of persons outside of myself with the ability to make an Accutron look as good as it did when it left the factory. Purchasing one of the watches below will get you one of the best available. Oftentimes you will also have one of the rarest since I tend to concentrate on restoration of some of the harder to find models in the very best of condition.
 

If you would like to contact me, please call 309-287-2627 or send an email to: bob@mybob.net . I live by my computer and will do my absolute best to get back to you within a day through email or phone.

\

1965 Accutron Spaceview w/chapter ring and Accutron band

 

Fully restored and beautiful...SOLD.

 

A RARER ACCUTRON CLOCK CANNOT BE FOUND...

 

Before the concept of a Spaceview, Bulova had released some of these to dealers so that the insides of an Accutron could be seen by potential customers. Shortly thereafter, customers began commenting on this display, saying that they would like a watch which would display the movement. Bulova recognized an opportunity and came up with the Spaceview concept and stared then producing them in the factory without dials. The word, Microsonic was also used but discontinued a little later. So, this acrylic piece with an undated movement and its original red hands, and the earliest of the 3-wire coils, predates the first Accutron Spaceview. Therefore, it's very rare. in 20 years I've seen 3. Just serviced, too...$4995

\

Rarest Accutron clock I've ever seen!!!


It's the only one like it out there. I'm sure it was made as a show-off example of Accutrons as setting requires opening up the case. Once set, though, it's good until the next battery change. Have you seen another? Swiss in all its glory and a true one-of-a-kind. I'd love to see another but you won't find one. Again, it was probably made for someone at the company to show the Accutron off back in the day. A little over two inches tall with glass and brass.
$4995

PLATINUM...PLATINUM...PLATINUM...PLATINUM!!!


Model 2703-P. First one I've ever seen. Sure, we've heard about it but no one has ever actually held one that I've known. Have you seen another? An early newspaper article published in the Long Island Newsday in March of 1961 mentioned a $2500 platinum Accutron. I have it on the best of authority that only a literal handful were produced and only in 1961. I'm sure you can imagine who the people were who could have owned this model...Presidents, Premiers, a Pope and the like. This one is from February of 1961. I was informed, too, that it was intended for Christmas sales. And it's HEAVY!!!...click on the photo for more information.

 

I've seen rare, platinum Omegas, Pateks, and a few others in the quarter million dollar vicinity so this one's owner probably has this one priced far lower than its real value for collectors of exceptionally historical timepieces.

 

If  you've got one of these I sure would like to hear from you in hopes of adding to my understanding of this model's history.

Accutron Spaceview, Accutron Astronaut, Accutron Spaceview Repair, Accutron Spaceview Service, Accutron Spaceview Restoration !!! If you're on a mission to discover Accutrons for Sale, especially Accutron Spaceview or Accutron Astronaut watches, then you've come to the right place to choose from among the best. I have many Accutron Spaceview and Accutron Astronaut watches available including models not easily found elsewhere. I'm also an expert at Accutron Repair, Accutron Spaceview Repair, and Accutron Astronaut Repair. If you are looking for someone well-versed with Accutron repair techniques to perform an Accutron Astronaut Repair, Accutron Spaceview Repair, Accutron Service, Accutron Restoration, or other Accutron Repair then you've also come to the right place.

Other websites with Accutrons for sale are asking incredible prices and give you only one or two photos for to judge the quality of their watches. There's a reason for this as their Accutrons are unrestored and usually with incorrect parts and over-polished cases. Often, their watches have case backs with incorrect date codes and the wrong hands for a particular model.
All of my Accutrons have been meticulously restored with a correct factory-like finish including correct circular and vertical grain finishes on the case backs. I'll offer you several photos of each watch to help you make an informed decision. And all of my Accutrons have been adjusted to keep excellent time using modern 387s batteries. You may find less expensive Accutrons on Ebay, but after you factor in your risk with the cost of restoration and repair you'll spend more money and wait a lot longer to wear your prized Accutron Astronaut or Accutron Spaceview than if you purchased one right here. You get what you pay for.

 

The original Accutron was the first and only watch-size timepiece powered by a battery which did not use a balance wheel and hairspring. Instead, the Accutron mechanism has a tuning fork as the timekeeping element. This includes the Accutron Astronaut, Accutron Spaceview, Accutron Railroad, and other asymmetrical Accutrons such as the Accutron Alpha, Accutron Center Lug, Accutron TV Case, and Accutron Anniversary. The tuning fork is driven with energy from a tiny power cell, or battery, by means of an electronic circuit. The vibratory motion of the tuning fork is converted into rotary motion, for turning time-indicating hands, by means of a simple but incredible small mechanism.

 

The outstanding characteristic of the Accutron timepiece, in comparison with traditional watches, is its accuracy of timekeeping. A tuning fork is inherently accurate, unlike a balance wheel and hairspring. Also, having no pivots or bearings, the Accutron accuracy is independent of the of the effects of lubrication and wear. It is this uniqueness which permitted the Bulova Watch Company to give a written guarantee of specific accuracy with each Accutron timepiece. The guarantee stated that the Accutron would not gain or lose more than a minute a month in normal use as a wrist timepiece.

 

Accutron watches were conceived, developed, designed and manufactured entirely within the organization of the Bulova Watch Company, Inc. It first made its appearance in the jewelry stores in November 1960. Therefore, those with the date code of MO on the case back are amongst the first of all Accutrons. Unlike many space-age devices, the Accutron timepiece was developed solely as a consumer item, although it was also used in many important applications in the United States' exploration of outer space. New applications were constantly being found where the Accutron's unusual combination of characteristics such as accuracy of timekeeping, tiny size and long running time on a self-contained source of power were advantageous.

 

Because the Accutron timepiece was and is so completely unlike a conventional watch, and because of the remarkable success of the Accutron Spaceview and Accutron Astronaut, many people today are still fascinated with this remarkable timepiece, finding themselves driven to purchase the next Accutron to add to their growing collections. I am one of those people and am in awe at the mechanical accomplishment of including a tuning-fork for time-keeping inside of a wristwatch.

 

Accutrons, Accutron Spaceview and Accutron Astronaut watches are pieces of watch history and represent a time in American technology and resourcefulness that still brings to mind nostalgic memories from a bygone era.

 

Just listen to the unmistakable sound of the Accutron hum and you may never go back to a conventional wristwatch. The Accutron has a soul not found in today's quartz watches. I purchased my first of many Accutron Spaceviews 25 years ago. My first of the dozens of Accutron Astronauts I have restored came about 2 years later. All told, I've owned and repaired thousands of vintage Accutrons. The better and rarer examples are getting much harder to find, but I'm doing everything possible to maintain interest for the next generation.

 

One day, when we retrieve from the moon the Apollo 11 seismometer left on the Sea of Tranquility by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin in 1969, and the timer from Apollo 12 in the central data station also placed on the moon on the Ocean of Storms by Pete Conrad and Alan Bean in 1969, collectibility is really going to go through the roof when the rest of world rediscovers the nostalgia and history behind the Accutron. Accutron values have been steadily climbing but when that day comes owners of the better examples are going to be very happy, indeed. A full restoration can help your cherished Accutron be one of those finer examples and I'm confident in my ability to offer you such a service.
