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.

Bulova 1977 Accutron Date & Day

Model ID rating explained.
Manufacture Year: 
1977
Movement Model: 
2193.10
Case Serial No.: 
132350
Case shape: 
Round
Gender: 
Mens
Additional Information: 

Bulova Accutron from 1977; has the 2193.10 movement with day/date feature; stainless steel case; original band/bracelet replaced; luminous hands and dial - rather simple silver-ish dial; caseback dated N7

Looks to match the model 21569 from this 1977 advert.

My first acquisition of an accutron; though it is not the more desirable 218 or 214, still a nice piece; never heard the hum of an accutron before, so that was a cool first experience.

If anyone has any documentation/service manuals for this movement, I would appreciate a pdf copy or a link - thanks!

Additional Information: 

Got it a few years ago with a complete package - inner plastic box, outer cardboard box, instruction manual, all that jazz. I always wanted a 1969-made watch (same as my age) and this was the closest I've been able to come to. It's perfectly wearable even today and even on my thick wrist :-)

I don't know the name of this model, time-span of manufacturing and I've never seen a watch like this anywhere, eBay including.

Here's an unusual case style I've yet to see for a 2182 Accutron with N3 marked movement.  This is a gold electroplate bezel, and 10k rgp back.  Hooded, or hidden lugs, and the black area around the coin edge bezel appears to be an enamel or painted coarse area.  Another used purchase, I'm unable to provide additional history.
