Bulova 1976 Accutron Railroad

Model ID rating explained.
Manufacture Year: 
1976
Movement Model: 
2181
Movement Jewels: 
7
Case Serial No.: 
G3595
Case shape: 
Round
Gender: 
Mens
Additional Information: 

This Accutron says Railroad Approved, and it looks like a train ran over it. 

Scratches everywhere, and the crown stem is loose to the point of not turning the hands. I'm not nearly competent enought to even try resetting/re-attaching it. 

I can find no serial number on the movement, though it does read 2181, which I assume is the model number.  Also, at the top of the movement, there is extra-tiny print that reads, "U.S. Pat......." followed by a whole bunch of numbers that I absolutely cannot make out.  I think they are actually microscopic, and my electron microscope is in the shop.

The only other type I can find on the movement reads, "U.S.A. Bulova" 

The inside case back is stamped "G3595" followed by "3-6" and "Use only genuine Accutron Cell number 218   Install with engraved side down in well"

And that's it.  It's pretty beat up, but it's a Bulova.

This watch was passed down from my father who purchased it when he lived in Alaska in the 70's.  It's case is surrounded by gold nuggets, either end has gold rams with ruby eyes.  Needless to say, it turns heads!
