HI, this is an accutron...thats all I really know...I cannot date it, although i've had to put a date on the info because i couldnt put 'unknown'

It does have letters/numbers on the case but they are faint...looks like an S or a 5 and the rest i cant read.

the watch was my fathers and any information on it would be appreciated. i may sell it  once ive established what it is ive got. its in virtually new condition and very well looked after.

Accutron "204", 1974 ad.

Your watch should have a number and a letter, probably "N-".

On it's original band too. Sweet!

You are very welcome.

Are you sure of the date? It should have a letter N followed by a number on the back, I have seen these with N2 on the back so it could even have been bought when you were born, and have N3!

Great to see that you still have your fathers watch. Wear it with pride.

As Bobbee says, have a look on the back for a date code.

Also if you can, please see if you can update your photos with clear focus ones.

I don't remember for sure....but wouldn't this  be entered as an Accuitron Day/Date, and we enter the model number 204 in the variant field?   Either way, it's a nice model 204.
