Other: It's no secret that we're huge fans of factory gem-set watches, and this extremely rare and beautiful vintage Accutron watch is perfect for when you want to rock some diamonds in a very subtle way. The original silver sunburst dial and non-luminous hands are pristine! We love the clean "crosshair" look with no date window. The 10K white gold-filled case is razor-sharp and unpolished. It comes with a NOS factory genuine Bulova crystal installed. The original crystal will also be included. A fresh battery was also installed at that time. If you're going for a retro Mad Men vibe, this collector-grade Accutron is absolutely perfect. Fun fact: The opening episode of Season 7 features a pitch to Bulova for their Accutron wristwatch. This watch retailed for $200.00 on a strap in 1967! That was quite expensive for a watch back then.
