  My pride and joy, Bulova Accutron 214 Stainless Steel case that i got at the flea market for a whopping 5 bucks with original box, papers, and outer cardboard box.

 I have not changed anything on the watch except the strap (I hate to say a Timex)

I have not seen another 214 with this dial, I wonder if anyone can tell me if this is a rare dial?

 Hi everyone, on my second Bulova in less than 2 weeks. Not sure what I've got here or of the age. But I did get it very cheap. This Accutron 214 has what I thought was a 1963 401 dial, but the lugs and back don't match. The back is a solid SS without the 10kt GF stamp (Which I was able to verify that this was either a 10kt or 14kt GF top case) and has a M8 stamped on. Not sure what I have here but I do know that some work was done on it. It has a 394 cell and is running perfectly. So either a diod was added to the coil or the movement was reset to allow the higher 1.55. Know matter what this is a great looking piece and is a great day runner but if anyone has any ideas on the actual age or what piece might have been changed I'd appreciate some advise. Thanks as usual.

Hello, I have recently inherited from my grandfather's estate this 18k solid gold Accutron 214. I am still researching it and trying to get more information about it. I do not know which year it was made as I have not been able to open the back case yet and there is no indication on the back. From what I have learned I am pretty sure its is a 214. I had a jeweler look at it and the band and movement case are 18k solid gold. The watch itself weighs almost 95grams and the jeweler estimated that around 70g of the weight was in gold. I do not have a proper battery for it but I tried a similar type battery in it and all the movement does work. I didn't want to leave a wrong voltage battery in it and risk damage. There is no case or documentation. If you have any questions or can provide me with additional information about this watch please write to me.

Edit/Update 1/3/12: I brought the watch to a reputible watch store. The head repair specialist opened and looked at it. He has 20+ years of experience and went to school at Bulova hq. It is a 214H model Accutron, movement 342 and item# possibly 14369232 (could not be 100% read from inscription). The watch was last serviced in 2010 and looks clean inside. It has 14 jewels and works great. The only thing we could not specifically identify was the year, but it has to be between 1960 and 1964. There is no year code anywhere we could find.

This watch is for sale. If you have any questions please feel free to message me. Thank you.
