Additional Information: 

Contained a 301 battery with stepped side down when I obtained it and it was not running.  The inside message "use only ACCUTRON 218 installed with stepped side up" was covered by a blank piece of tape.  I read somewhere that installing battery with the wrong polarity would damage the watch.  Also I looked at many, many photos of Accutron movements and never saw this one.  Is the movement original?  What is the correct battery and polarity.  Is there any way to check for a burned out coil with an ohmeter before installing new battery?

Accutron Calendar - I picked this up a few days ago in an estate lot with 7 other watches.  I'm guessing the previous owner was having trouble seeing the hands.  The hands were painted black, I'm guessing felt tip marker.  I removed the hands and gently cleaned them, removing most of the black.  There are still specks of black on the lume and a little hole in the lume of the minute hand.  I tossed in a battery and it runs.  The bracelet is interesting.  It's turquoise stones with 12K GF over sterling silver.
