I have two Bulova Acutrons day/date up/down watches. Both have M9 date codes on the case back, yet both movements are date-coded N0. Is there any info on why this may have happened, or is this a common occurrence for early-made N0 movements? Or is this a weird coincidence?
Interesting video to watch. Try it at your own risk though.
Bulova's apparent first attempt at marrying a wrist watch with something else; as well as a first attempt at a battery operated travel alarm radio. The only mention of this curiosity I find on mybulova is an apparent mention in the 1962 Annual Report (that I was unable to open).
As I am new to this forum, I am curious to know if there is any literature on how the watch designs got their names? I've noticed different US President names, and other notables. Is there a published book on the company and its history? Thank you for the information.
I saw this game in an antiques mall this weekend. The watch caught my eye. This sure looks like a Bulova. The case is a strong match to the Golden Clipper.

The Vintage Accutron
"I feel now after a decade of vintage timepiece restoration and service on Accutron's, I can finally put to rest some of the crazy rumors and fallacies about these wonderful timepieces." I'm sure you have noticed the new swiss Bulova's with the Accutron logo. There is very little in common with a 214 and 218 Tuning Fork Movements. Bulova has opted for more a conventional and modern manual or automatic movement and their new Tuning Fork movements is a refined more modern approach to vintage Accutron's.
