The late 1950s, saw one of watchmaking's great advances when Accutron launched a fully electronic watch that measured time with an
oscillating tuning fork, creating a new standard for timekeeping
precision. To watch collectors throughout world that quiet whirr was the
first sound of the coming electronic age. Since then, the Accutron watch
has been present at many defining moments of modern times. Including the
launch of the Vanguard I in 1958 and the first moonwalk 11 years later.
Today's Accutron watches, like the early ones, combine the best of two worlds. Hand-crafted in Switzerland, each watch features superb Swiss quartz movements, but with distinctly American design, an Accutron watch is as recognizably "New World" as the space shuttle. Small wonder these are among the most collected watches of all time.
Each Accutron watch is constructed of solid stainless steel and has a scratch-resistant, hardened-mineral crystal for water resistance to at least 100 feet (30 meters). 23-karat gold finishes are applied with the most advanced plating techniques available. Sculpted bracelet links and authentic leather bands fit perfectly on the wrist, while genuine diamond accents are hand-set for maximum brilliance.
The Accutron watch is made by Bulova, one of the great institutions in watchmaking. Each Accutron watch carries a 25-year warranty against manufacturer's defects.
