Other: Here at watchsteez.com, we love presentation watches because they tell a story that often gets lost as watches trade hands. This beautiful Accutron is in collector-grade condition and features a great Phillips 66 logo on the dial along with a matching caseback engraving. It was presented to E. M. Payton on June 25, 1976 for 25 years of loyal service to the company. Nowadays you just get a pat on the back for such a feat... The original silver sunburst dial and luminous hands are pristine! The yellow gold-plated case is unpolished, and the original domed acrylic crystal remains quite clean. As an added bonus, the Bulova Accutron 2181 tuning-fork movement has been completely overhauled by our watchmaker. If you're going for a retro Mad Men vibe, this watch is absolutely perfect. Fun fact: The opening episode of Season 7 features a pitch to Bulova for their Accutron wristwatch.
