Lot 0506
This watch evokes an important stage of watch making history. Developed in the 1960's as an alternative to the lever movement, Bulova pioneered the Accutron with its tuning fork movement. This used the tuning fork instead of a balance for the timekeeping element. This was the forerunner of the quartz movement we all know today. Manufactured for 17yrs only this example uses the 214 movement which unusually has no setting stem or crown on the side as a normal watch but features it on the back. The Space view came about as a salesman's aid so that they could show off the tuning fork movement to their customers. It proved so popular that Bulova decided to put it into production and a legend was born. At 35mm diameter the circular gold-plated case is in good condition for its age. Showing the Bulova logo and writing on the Perspex, with white hands and fitted with a black leather strap, the watch is in working order and "hums" just as it should! A must for every collection.
