    Can't help with your questions, but it's a beautiful watch in great cosmetic condition!

    I can't help either - but its a wonderful watch. For those that don't know, Accurist is a British brand started in 1946 and still going and still independent. There is a history page on their website: Accurist Watches: About including a video of their development.

    This is their speaking clock: Accurist British Real Time: Clock (it takes ages to load).

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    British Real Time is giving US Eastern Standard Time.... the island is now in Lake Erie??

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Amazing - it must adjust for your IP address.

    Actually, it seems to be a tiny bit fast.

    When the watch was given to me I had it serviced and a few bits replaced. The watch is a little fast but every function works. I have found other watch brands that used the movement but never from Accurist, guessing not many were made.
