Bulova 1966 Accutron Date & Day
HI all...I recently accquired this 1967 (M7) with a bright blue face, red sweep & stainless steel case. Any and all info will be greatly appreciated. So far all I know is this appear to be a model Up Down Day Date "Q" (I hope this case style has a better name than just "Q" though.) I can find pics of the all black version from 1970-71 (U?) but not much on this one yet. I did find an ad from 1968 that described this watch with a blk/white drawing which said it came with a blue band too.
It really is a great looking watch in person & it runs although it loses time. There's a small amount of scratching/rubbing around the roman numeral III but otherwise it's in great shape! The tell tale 'hum' is humming so I've no reason to believe the movement has been replaced with modern works. I have not opened up the back yet and will probably wait till I send it in for repair. But I'd like to know more; there was one sold on Ebay a year or more ago but again there was no pic available. It described it exactly and said it was an unusual and rare style with the red sweep...
Thanks very much!
