   For whatever it's worth, I have 60 + Accutrons in every caliber but 219 and I have five non Accutron tuning fork watches and I run all of them except one 214 on modern silver oxide cells. One 214 does require an Accucell.

 Both of my 230's ran fast when I got them but have been adjusted to run accurately on modern cells.

As a follow up.
Tried using an accucell it now keeps perfect time. Within a few seconds a day.
Swapped the 344 back and it again gained 30 mins in 24 hrs.
Pretty conclusive test.
Will leave the accucell in place until I get it serviced. Then I will get it adjusted to run on the 1.5v cell.
