Other: It's no secret that we love solid gold watches here at watchsteez.com. With the current spot price of gold reaching record highs (over $2,300 USD per ounce as of June 24th), watches like this solid 18K gold Accutron have become incredible value buys in the market. Aside from the value of the gold itself, this watch is incredibly rare in this configuration (we seldom see Accutron watches with 18K gold cases). This example also happens to be in collector-grade condition and features a unique two-tone sunburst dial with applied Accutron logos at 6, 9, and 12 o'clock. It looks amazing on the alligator strap, complete with original Accutron tang buckle! As an added bonus, the Bulova Accutron 218D tuning-fork movement has been completely overhauled by our watchmaker with a new domed acrylic crystal installed at the time of service. If you're going for a retro Mad Men vibe, this watch is absolutely perfect. Fun fact: The opening episode of Season 7 ("Time Zones") features a pitch to Bulova for their Accutron wristwatch.
