I picked up this 1968 M8 Bulova Accutron with a nice roman hour marker dial.   The movement is 214.  I put a battery in and it is not working and I hear no humming.   Bummer.

Good news.  After hearing the battery rattle in the case I reviewewed a few websites and found a mention of the cap spring being pushed in.  Sure enough I pulled it out and it popped up.  She immediately started running when I replaced the battery cap.  I put a new crystal on it.  Very happy.  BTW  I failed to mention the yellow gold faceted applied hour markers adds a beautiful contrast to the dial
