Additional Information

Here is an Accutron "417" from 1967. The case is 10k gold filled with a stainless steel back. The movement is a standard 214 with a M7 date code on the movement and case back. Unfortunately I don't have the original bracelet as shown in the advert yet. Hopefully I'll be able to source one soon. The watch is in immaculate condition with just about no blemishes on the whole watch. I just serviced the watch myself as per my usual routine, and I couldn't help but immediately post this beauty!

Can please double check the dial dashes at 3, 6 and 9, they look a little different.

This is from Line Book 1967 BAWD0166 pg 82. It seems the case matches but the dial is not a match to the subject. All the markers are slightly different. I wonder if the dial is a replacement?

I agree it is a case match but the dial is different on the 3,6, and 9.

You guys are correct. The dial does have different markers at the 3,6, and 9 they are shaped more like keystones unlike the staggered ones on the 417. I completely missed that.
