Default The Rarest Accutron 214's Of All Time !

These are all the rarest Accutron 214's of all time and it can be argued which is number 1 of them all, Prob the least rare is the 18kt solid gold astronaut because I've seen way more of those than any of the others here...

the railroad watch is super cool, but they really broke the mold with that astronaut.
especially that coffin link bracelet.

Astounding Accutronitis !

Seriously is insanely tough choosing a favorite, and wow didn't realize
there were so many gold models either. ..Love how even though they
are all Accutrons, that they each have their own terrific personalities,
and separate themselves from each other with so many neat details.
Even the bracelets are exceptional, and neat to see !

Thank you !!!

7 is the all solid platinum Accutron watch which includes it's intergraded strap...

8 is the Swiss made Accutron 18kt all solid white gold chapter ring watch which includes it's intergraded strap and with baguette diamonds for hour markers...

Accutronitis:
I wore the clone of Figure 3 for 20 years as a locomotive Engr on the Union Pacific RR.
Never failed me. Not even once!!!
Bulova was playing their A Game when they released it for sale. Approved by the FRA.
Closest competitor was Hamilton's 505 model RR wristie. But most of the Engrs, Con-
ductors, Brakemen and Switchmen I knew wore the 214.

Thank you for sharing that, I'm all about the 214, A childhood friend introduced me to the Accutron tuning fork watches with a railroad he was trying to get from a vintage thrift store on the Oregon coast which he finally got many years ago and just this year I restored it to like new condition...

This is the watch before I restored it...





And this is the same watch after...
