It's time to part with my last vintage watch. I saved the best for last. A 1963 accutron railroad approved. This one has a 214 movement that is humming great and keeping perfect time! The case shows little wear for a 52 year old watch. The plastic crystal does show some marks but nothing major.
The only flaw on this watch is that when you lift the ring on the back to set the time ,you have to pull out on it for the hands to move. This may be an easy fix, I'm not sure. It has never bothered me in the 10 or so years that I have owned it.
Not sure how to price this one, these are getting harder to find in this condition.
I would like to trade it for a nice deep blue with a 9015 movement. Make me a cash offer.

This is so a coincidence!
I bought that exact watch in 1964,replacing the Hamilton pocketwatch I used in
locomotive engineer service..
Ditto the Dreadnaught Martin D35. Built in 1968 at Nazareth Pa.
Flipped the Acutron for what I was told was a better watch.The Hamilton 505.
A certified POS RR grade watch. Nothing but a pain..

Kiss fan:
Approach flipping the Bulova like my paw when he offered his 30 30 Marlin rifle
for sale. Guy tried to low ball him.
My paw was super patient when selling. He replied to the low ball offer "Look
pard, this rifle doesn't eat a thing". The next week he sold it at his price.
