Possible Accutron Date & Day "G"

Case is 14KT Gold filled and dated N2, bezel has a brushed texture. Dial is the champaigne color with Roman numeral markers; luminous golden hands with black second hand. Case number 2925. Not the original band.

There are two ads from 1971 (ad1  ad2) that both show the second hand with tuning fork symbol on one end and not present on the dial. This one has only the tuning fork symbol on the dial.

There is a similar "F" variant, but that calls for a silver dial

HI all...I recently accquired this 1967 (M7) with a bright blue face, red sweep & stainless steel case. Any and all info will be greatly appreciated. So far all I know is this appear to be a model Up Down Day Date "Q" (I hope this case style has a better name than just "Q" though.) I can find pics of the all black version from 1970-71 (U?) but not much on this one yet.  I did find an ad from 1968 that described this watch with a blk/white drawing which said it came with a blue band too.

It really is a great looking watch in person & it runs although it loses time. There's a small amount of scratching/rubbing around the roman numeral III but otherwise it's in great shape! The tell tale 'hum' is  humming so I've no reason to believe the movement has been replaced with modern works. I have not opened up the back yet and will probably wait till I send it in for repair. But I'd like to know more; there was one sold on Ebay a year or more ago but again there was no pic available. It described it exactly and said it was an unusual and rare style with the red sweep...

Thanks very much!

PS: The 218 movement is a slightly educated guess going by the stem @ 4

I don't have all the information needed on this forum since the back of the case hasn't been removed (I currently don't have the tools/knowledge to do it myself). I found this watch while going through some items at my parents house. It appears to have never been worn and is still in its original packaging. Based on an advertisement that I found on this site it shows up in a 1972 add and is called a "Accutron Date and Day 'AV'". The back of the case has an inscription on it which indicates that it was given to an individual in 1977.

HGEP (heavy gold electroplate) model with 2182 day/date movement.  I picked this one up at an antiques fair and was lucky to find it with the original JB Champion Accutron marked bracelet.  The bracelet, by the way, was a challenge to figure out how to size (remove links) as it didn't have pins that drifted out entirely like most do.
