Thoughts on Accutron after servicing six 218s...and counting

Recommended Posts

For the time when these were introduced, the technology was truly leading edge.  The 218 movement seems solid...not difficult to service.

But...and this is a BIG but, Accutron (really Bulova) fails at the non-tech stuff.  While I like the two-piece back, the case quality is generally poor.

The dials seem fine enough, but the hands are low quality compared to a nice swiss watch.

I have one case where the crown interface appears to have been milled incorrectly.  Not sure...still investigating.
