The third picture is not my watch but an identical one currently on Ebay. The owner states it is a 1967 model. It is absolutely identical to my watch. His pictures were way better! This watch is for sale and I will be adding more specifics soon. This watch runs great and keeps perfect time. I take it to the same jeweler for battery replacement every year and it never gains or loses time. Thank you.

What is the date code on the back case?

Have you been able to open the case up and inspect the movement?

Accutron Calendar Model. The winding crown at the 4 o'clock position indicates a 218 movement. I like the Accutron symbol for hour markers, haven't seen that before. Nice watch.

There is an Accutron Calendar "AB" in 14K solid gold with the exact same dial in the forums ads, but it has an assymetric case.

Accutron Calendar  works for me.  Hopefully we will get a date code and movement type.  I think 218 also, w/ crown at 4

Hi, The date code on the back is M8 and unfortunately for the other information the watch is at the pawn shop presently so I will get that ASAP. My dad gave me this watch before he passed. His mother prospected a bunch of gold nuggets in Alaska and made several pieces of family jewelry with them. This watch was given  to him with a band covered in gold nuggets with a diamond shape pieces of Alaskan Jade on each side. She also made a women's watch that has gone to other family members and several necklaces. I am not sure where she got the watch face. I am planning on keeping the watch band for my 10 year old daughter, but I am a single mom and need a car, so I am eventually going to sell this watch face with a new band for that. My dad wore it often and it always kept perfect time, and he told me to always take it to the same jeweler for battery replacement. (Roper's Jewelry Auburn, CA). I listed the watch on ebay about a years ago, so I was hoping to find my ebay ad to get the other information that is on the back of the watch but I have never had it opened up and will do that as soon as it is in my possession. Thanks!

Sandals67  When you get the watch back, you can also list for sale on here for a buck.  ...and perhaps we can confirm some of the markings and have better pictures added to record.  Nice 18k.  Until then,
I wait with baited breath.....
