N7 1977 Accutron Quartz (Dual-Day) bought new in June 1980.

Hard to see, but the crystal is tiered, with the centre 1/3 flat, and the upper and lower thirds sloped.

My first "real" watch, got it for my Grade 9 graduation. Have treasured it, and worn it sparingly since. Still works like new, all original. Accuset button at 4 o'clock position.

Wow.  Thanks for adding this beauty.   Says both Accutron and Quartz on the dial.  Nice

Smart watch, and I like the faceted crystal. I have a couple of 1970's watches with these in, they set them off.

Accutron quartz, or Accuset?

Accuset is a feature/function, and/or perhaps a series of watches with this feature.
I'm thinking this one through a bit.

Nice Accutron Quartz; really screams 70s. Do we categorize all Accutron Quartz as such, with date/day, w/ calendar, w/o either?

I'm good with "Accutron Quartz Day & Date" as the "Accuset" and "Dual Day" are features/functions.

How cool is it that Mike still has his 9th grade graduation watch! I love that. I got a Caravelle for high school graduation ( also the 70;s) but it's long gone :( , but I do have my first BULOVA from the mid 70's!

We do not subset the Accutron Quartz's down to the same level as the Accutrons, we would need model names added.

I think that if we can find some documented evidence that they were also sub-setted similar to the Accutrons, then I can certainly add those to the model list. Accutron Quartz also for me.
