This ACCUQUARTZ  watch appears to be somewhat unusual.  The dial does not have the accutron emblem but has an unknown emblem (looks like it might be from the Luftwaff!!!) perhaps some company logo as a presentation watch.  It is strange there are no serial numbers.  I believe the band may be original but there is no manufactures name and only imprinted with USA.

I recently purchased this watch and was quite surprised at how pristine the watch is.

This is a gold plated 1976 Bulova Accuquartz used to belong to my grandfather. It was presented to him for work he carried out for a bank during his employment, which is why it is stamped on the back plate with his name D.M. Slingsby and the year it was presented. I have tried to show as much detail as I can in the photo's On the inside of the back of the case it says that the main bezel of the watch is gold plated to 20 microns. I have managed to locate a new #344 battery and installed it, but the watch doesn't appear to be running. There is no obvious damage to the mechanism so I'm assuming it's an electronic issue?

Additional Information: 

My watch is a 1974 Bulova Accuquartz, in 10kt gold, sub-caliber 2242 (day/date complication).

I lost my Dad in October of last year and amongst other things his favourite watch was passed onto me. I am trying to find out more about it. I vaguely remember him buying it when he was on holiday in the US, and he was really pleased with himself. He always wore it even at work or doing the garden. Over the last couple of years he didn’t wear it but wore a Seiko, I thought this was because his eyesight was going and he needed a bigger dial. I know now that some idiot in a jewellers told him that batteries were no longer available and the watch was obsolete. He would have been really disappointed to put it in a draw and not wear it anymore. I wish he had asked me to look into it and we could have got it going again. One of the many things we did not talk about because I was too ‘busy’.
 

You can see it’s had a hard life
 

On the back it has the markings 3 726037 N4. The case ref is 7578-1.
 

The watch is currently with a repairer who has cleaned and calibrated it. He has also replaced several parts which I have sourced on eBay from the US and Australia. It is keeping good time on the watch winding table. The case has been cleaned and repaired.
 

I am trying to find out the part numbers for the crystal and crown for this watch so I can search for replacements.
 

Has anyone seen one like it before ?

I would like to find out more about this watch.  It is a N2 model, I believe from 1972 in mint condition, hardly worn. What is the history of this model? Is this a limited edition? I haven't seen any like it online.

Thanks.
