Additional Information: 

I believe this is a model 259, after looking at your data list. I was curious about the case back. Inside it has the initials CB inside a little frame, and the number 952 embossed in the metal. Also it is marked Swiss just below the 952. So I assume it is a Swiss made case. The movement is marked USA.

Is this movement basicly the same as the regular 218?

Thanks for help.

Hello I am a first time Bulova Accutron owner:

I recently acquired a Bulova Accutron 18K Watch commissioned by Tiffany & Co (I believe) and was very curious about the engraving on the back as well as its provenance.

I am trying very hard to find if the Tom Watson Jr. inscribed on the back is the same man who was 2nd president of IBM (1952–1971). The period of 1960 - 1962 was very important in both Bulova's history, as well as IBM's. 1961 is the period indicated on the back of the watch and coincides with IBM’s runout of the IBM 7030 computer. The first example of the IBM 7030, also known as Stretch (IBM's first transistorized supercomputer) was delivered to Los Alamos National Laboratory in 1961.

If this watch has a relationship to this Tom Watson Jr. I'm also curious whether the watch was given to him, or given by him.

I have enclosed some photos for your reference.

I am also interested in having the watch tuned up and appraised in the Southern California area and would greatly appreciate any suggestions or referrals to quality horologist/watchsmith here.

Many Thanks,

Bob Martz

Additional Information: 

Believe this to be a 1975 Accutron 2210 (similar to the 263 in size and shape as per the attached ad).

This is my mother's watch. I finally pried it away from her for a cleaning and battery change, and I am going to put a NOS strap on it. She got it new in 1975 (for her 35th birthday), and has worn it daily since. Fantastic watch.
