Additional Information

1966 Bulova Accutron, generic 214. Case stamp "M6" reveals the date. Also stamped: 10K Gold Filled Bezel, Waterproof, Stainless Steel. Found non-running in a thrift store in 2018, new battery took about one week to acclimate before keeping accurate time so I'm not sure how long it was left with a dead battery. Initials F.L.L. stamped into the back.

It is great you got it running again.  A very nice 60's looking watch with the textured case.

I believe they call that dial the "lighting bolt" dial?
