lets call any other unknowns entering the database 19hundredwhatever "BULOVA" .., which would be the same as naming the subject Watch simply an "ACCUTRON".

no consistancy.

"ACCUTRON" is not a model, it is a brand.

ACCUTRON by Bulova.

There are severel models of "ACCUTRON" identified by their Series which are further identified by specific model #'s or letters.

Hundreds of them.

Without knowing whether or not the movement is even an accutron I say Unknown.

Based on the current method used to identify the "ACCUTRON" unknown is suitable Darren and there will be more, many more.

We need to use a method with a little more consistancy.

I don't know about anyone else, but I thought we were using panel PM's to debate the naming of Accutron's, not blocking up the threads?

Thanks everyone.  The movement is absolutely original.  The watch belonged to my deceased mother, she stopped wearing it in the 80s, and it's been sitting in a jewelry box ever since then, until I started wearing it a few weeks ago.  I'm geeting a new watch band and when I go have it put on I can ask the jeweler to tell me what it says inside and let you all know.

Amy added a new movement pic in root record, and she PM'ed me saying:
 

I was able to have the back opened and it says 2301 inside

Thanks Amy

1975 Accutron 230 unknown model from me.  The "series" word is implied, if not stated spicifically.  We've been adding the model name/number- when known- into the variant field- like for the "Woody"

I would go with 1975 Accutron, and in the vairiant box put "unknown"...we know it is a ladies, and if a ad comes along to ID it, it will probably be a 3 digit number, because its not a Calendar, nor is it a Day.Date. The movement is a 2301, so publishing it as a 230 does nothing to ID this watch, and will only confuse others that use the database to self ID their watches.
