Additional Information: 

About a week ago I was handed a beautiful vintage Bulova Accutron wristwatch, not knowing much about the brand, nor being informed of any further details. Upon attempting to do some research on my newly acquired timepiece, I found that I was unable to locate any reference to another one of the same model as mine. I have however found a similar model from the same year, 1975, but though similar, it is not an exact match. The only other 1975 model I could find that was the closest in shape and look to mine, I found on this site, and can be viewed by clicking this link: http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1975-accutron-5591 


So after all this, here is what I do know about this model:

  • I can deduce that it is a watch intended for a male
  • I know that the serial number is as follows: 2 987748
  • I know that it is a 1975 model, as indicated by the "N5" found below the serial number
  • I know that it is indeed a Bulova Accutron.

So I now turn to you, the experts, in the hope that my lack of knowledge in regards to my timepiece might be supplemented by that of another chronometer aficionado. 

I thank you all in advance for your assistance. Any extra light that can be shed upon the identity and designation of this model will indeed be appreciated. 

Thank you kindly for your time, and also for your expertise,

Kind Regards,

Nic.

Additional Information: 

I am simply cleaning out my parents' estate.  My Dad owned several Accutron watches in his lifetime.  I am guessing about the date (It does say M5 on the back of the watch) and I have no idea about the Movement Model because i don't want to take the back of the watch off.  Anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated!  He passed away last week at the age of 85.  As you can see in the pictures, the band was a replacement by Speidel.
