Additional Information

I bought this watch a few years ago, I don't know much about it. There are a few scatches on the face of the watch, and a lot of scraches on the back of the watch. As of right now the watch isn't running, I think the battery is dead.

Ok, I went ahead and updated the movement model to 2182.

Yep, N3 is on the date code on the back of the case.

Hi elmo, we have a lot of advertising from the early 70's on Accutron but nothing that shows this exact configuration. Jabs is spot on, Bulova would have named this Accutron "Day and Date" for obvious reasons. In some cases they would give it a further classification (like Day & Date 'F') but that's the variant we're missing. 

If you elect to start wearing it again (and you should), I suggest having it serviced by someone who specializes in Accutron. Depending on where you live, we might be able to recommend someone. Thanks for sharing it.

Accutron Day and date is my ID vote.

Thanks for the information on the watch.

I live in Walnut Creek, California if you can find someone in the area that might work on Accutron that would be great.


Thanks for your help
