There's not that much more info or discussion in Goeff's record, so it could be deleted, but his pictures in that record are very nice to have somewhere?

I don't see if it was a hang tag giving Bulova Model 22508-Y, or if that info was written on the owner guide in those pictures.  I bet this owners guide has the actual case serial number of this watch written in there too.

Hope it was hand delivered, and an appropriate ceremony was held...perhaps toasting with a beverage aged in a solid wooden barrel for about as many years- Glenfiddish 1973 comes to mind :)

Thats a awful nice looking cooking timer there Bob! Did you use it to time the bird this Thanksgiving? ;-D

Santa Geoff was commenting on how he would like to head up my way...maybe I should clean the chimmy and get the ice off of the roof just in case!

Woody or Woodie...it makes no difference, 3 ticks.

Is "Woody" a confirmed model name?

The Woody is a term used by Accutron enthusiasts for identification, I don't think it was ever an actual Model and there are more than one style with the Mahogony bezel insert

"ACCUTRON Series 218"

My heart says Accutron Wioody, but Fifth is technically correct, was this an actual model name.

Generic Accutron 218 with the variant of 'Woody' may do us for now.

Gorgeous watch Bob!

I figured it was only a matter of time before someone would point out that this model was never really called a woody but please don't call it generic or unknown. How about this?

Good idea Bob, it would be a shame to lose a great name to a technicality!
