    Bulova Accutron - Help to ID?

    Hello, I received this from my grandfather and would like to receive more information about it. Id like to know if anyone can tell from the pictures what model and approximate year it is. I'm assuming the band is not original.

    Looks like a late 60's early 70's vintage.

    There's no side crown, so you have an Accutron with the 214 movement. The back of the watch should have the letter M or the letter N followed by a number somewhere. M = 1960's, N = 1970's, and the number is the specific year. M7 = 1967, N2 = 1972, etc.

    There's a website called mybulova.com that has listings of models and vintage ads. Search for the year you get from the code.

    You're correct about the bracelet being aftermarket. It's also crazy cool. Send me a private message if you're thinking about getting it fixed up and running again. I'll point you towards the person who fixed up mine.
