It really does look great.....  popped in a new battery... took right off humming.  Unfortunately... hands stopped moving about 12 hours later.... still humming so I know the coils are good.... just need to have someone ungunk probably.

I agree on the 'Day Date AV' ID - Nice piece plains, good look on that bracelet.

I would agree on the Accutron Day Date but not the variant 'AV'. The 'AV' variant has a 'Brown striped strap of alternating smooth and napped corfam'.

Who in their right mind would leave this watch on a Corfam strap?

NY times reffered to Corfam as Du Pont's "$100 million Edsel"!

  Date and Day "AV".

It's the nearest match, too.
