1971 Bulova Accutron Railroad Approved (Ref. 2875) Gold Capped

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.

This Accutron in particular is appropriately called the Railroad, because it was actually one of the very few wristwatches purpose-made and approved for railroad workers. Thanks to its quartz movement, it was incredibly accurate while also being affordable, making them easily adoptable by both the intended audience and lots of other "regular" folks as well.
