An interesting watch, as Accutron was being phased out and Quartz was taking over. The 2423.10 quartz movement has a Day Date function, and a trim control inside, so you can zero it right down. You don't see this anymore, and the only quartz movts that can boast a near-zero drift are the ones that are actually certified chronometers, and that is comparatively rare. The certification for quartz chronometer is different than for mechanical watches.

N7 1977 Accutron Quartz (Dual-Day) bought new in June 1980.

Hard to see, but the crystal is tiered, with the centre 1/3 flat, and the upper and lower thirds sloped.

My first "real" watch, got it for my Grade 9 graduation. Have treasured it, and worn it sparingly since. Still works like new, all original. Accuset button at 4 o'clock position.
