Hi Jim,

Your watch is similar to mine. I wonder do you have the instructions on how to set the time and day/date function ? I don't have the instructions for mine and the date is wrong.

It has been renovated and I managed to locate a new crystal, still looking for a crown. I bought a scruffy one which keeps great time which I will keep for spares.

I have noticed the prices going up with dealers asking $100+ for non runners.

John

John  To set the day, set time back from 24 hours to 18 hours, then forward to 24 hours, etc... The date set is listed as "quickset" so I'm guessing when the crown is "out" in the time set position, you give a little pull and it advances the date by one day.  I'd check with others to see if I got this right before you try it and pull your crown all the way out.  I'm just guessing here.

The movement series came in at least three versions:

2240: no date
2241: date
2242: day/date

Since I believe we made this model ID name up, based on year, movement, and features stated on the dial, would it be better to ID as Bulova 1973 Accuquartz 2242?  It is listed as having 13 Jewels.
