Men's Vintage 1968 Alaskan Natural Nugget Bulova Accutron M8 Watch Tuning Fork Move. 14k Gold Case.
Bulova Founded in 1875. The Bulova "Accutron" Debut in October 1960. This special movement which used a 360 hertz tuning fork instead of a balance wheel works super. Max Hetzel was the inventor and came to Bulova in 1948. The tuning fork was powered by a one-transistor electronic oscillator circuit. This made the Accutron one of the first electronic watches.
The tuning fork movement was a horological insurrection. This Bullova Accutron is one of the finest of these watches and should bring great praise amongst other Accutron watch collectors. An Alaskan Beauty set in solid gold. An Alaska custom Bullova Accutron;1968/M8.
