Just wanted to know if it is a real 0 dial.  The watch dial and movement say Swiss and movement is dated N0 as well.

I can't comment on the dial, but the movement certainly look authentic and original. I like the dial with the '0' at the 12 o'clock position....I've not seen that before.

Other than that it would be a 1970 Accutron Railroad.

Hello No. 15, welcome to myBulova. I can't say I've seen the "0" dial either, it's an interesting variant.

Agree that it's a Railroad model, very nice.

When we visited Bulova HQ in October 2019 we were told that Accutron Railroad watches with a "0" in place of the "12" on the dial were made exclusively for the Canadian Railroad system.

That is a cool bit of knowledge.  Great historical fact.  Should we designate this as its own model?   Accutron Canadian Railroad
