Bulova Accutron 214 M6 Doctor's Pulsation. The user instructions refer to the model as 'Doctor's Date Accutron'. The model had limited production in both the 214 and 218 calibers and is most usually designated simply as Doctor's Pulsation. As you might expect, the appeal would be mostly to medical personnel. The ability to quickly and accurately determine pulse rate is a very useful feature.

A nice example of a classic 214 Accutron. Apparently the word "Waterproof" was used initially and then changed to "Water Resistant" in 1969. Later in 1969, all reference to water resistance is removed. It was added again after 1971 to increase flagging sales, but I must make the following cautionary statement:

Accutrons are NOT waterproof, and never were. Even excessive wrist sweat can fog them up, and entry is provided, especially in the 214, at many points, not the least of which are the setting mechanism and battery hatch. If you have a nice old Accutron, treat it kindly, and keep in mind also that the stainless steel on these will also corrode over time when exposed to moisture, most commonly around the crystal, in the seat, where it cannot be seen unless the crystal is being changed. Your Accutron has survived all these years, it would be a shame to lose it to corrosion or water damage.

In the true sence this is not really a watch.

It's a small desk clock featuring an accutron 214 movement.

I was hoping to find an advert featuring this clock but have had no luck.

This movement is in very clean mint condition (I assume it does not take the punishment that a watch would)

It does not run at present, tried the correct battery but it does not even hum.

I will have to get it serviced repaired.

Todays find N2 214 not to mention a Titoni airmaster...both for a whopping $10. Opened her up and had an original battery marked bulova 214. New battery and up and running.  I found a Bulova Clipper watch box a few weeks back...Uh, Plainsman. Did you turn your 214 into a spaceview? Mine has the original band thats driving me alittle crazy, clasp opens away from me and push pin on one side wont collapse. I will usually destroy a  expansion band and replace it with a nice leather strap. Not an option in this case...Dont mind my daily wearer in the shot guys...Have a great weekend.
