1970 Bulova Accutron Deep Sea (Ref. 702-1)
The vintage Bulova obsession in the watch community is very real and here to stay! The unique and funky watches that Bulova made from the 60s-80s are always a cause for conversation. Ranging from colorful diving chronographs to eccentric electric watches like the famous Accutron.
The strong, broad lug case has been lightly polished in the past and retains its original chamfers through the lugs with light, honest signs of use. The original "Coke" bakelite bezel is in very presentable condition and shows some honest wear, there is a surface crack in the top triangle and a crack next to the "30". The case retains its original "Accutron" offset crown. The case back retains all of its original factory engravings in deep and legible condition. The original Bulova Accutron beads of rice bracelet is in excellent shape and shows normal stretch for its age and retains 21 links.
The matte black Accutron dial is in wonderful condition, there are some light marks near the center of the hand stack, but they're not visible to the naked eye. The tritium lume plots have achieved an excellent creamy patina, under U.V. light inspection the lume plots reveal almost no degradation. The original tritium hands match the dial perfectly and exhibit no degradation.
None. The watch is operating perfectly and keeping excellent time, and just received a new battery.
