I agree, the box is not original to the watch as it has the Accutron symbol on it. They started using this symbol in the early 1960. The watch itself also isn't an Accurton, nor does it have the Accutron symbol anywhere on it.

I'm hoping to find myself an original box for my Chrono 'C". There's plenty of Accutron boxes going on ebay but very hard to find a pre 1960s plain Bulova box, especially for a men's watch.

Getting back to the watch...very nice Wayne. A keeper!

Wayne, You better save your boxes, disply cases etc. Take some time to research and match them to watches ypu own. It's worth the effort for sure.
