  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?

  There were so many dials for Accutrons it is hard to say that one or another is rare. Sometimes I wonder if Bulova ever made any two Accutrons alike.

The Accutron's had many different dials, or lack of in the case of the Spaceview, White or Butler seems to be the most popular followed by Gold, 2-tone & Black. Some also had Textured style dials.

Its a nice looking 214, and Bulova made & sold a lot of them...If you picked it up for a 5 spot, you stole it, they usually bring a good chunk of change on eBay.

Usually takes at least a Benjamin or two for one of these 214's in nice working order.

Also you should change your Movement Jewel count to 15 not 7 as all Accutron 214 movement have 15 jewels......
