I haven't worn a gold colored watch in quite a while. The few I have are either really dated 70's to 80's and definitely not within the realm of my current tastes.
So imagine my surprise when a smaller gold watch sitting in the display of a local shop caught my eye.
I couldn't tell quite what it was sitting buried on the second shelf and the staff was busy with other customers. I waited patiently for the crowds to clear out and asked, "Um, may I see that little watch down there?" Hmm, it is gold, and on the cheap black strap it doesn't look too bad... Ahh what the heck, I'll take it.
I would have preferred to get some better pics but the LCD screen on my camera did not survive my 1st grade daughters Field Day. They don't quite show the beauty of the sunburst cream dial with the applied indices.
I'll get some better ones later but these will give you an idea.
1969 Bulova Accutron 10K GF bezel, 214 movement.
I had never seen this movement before and I must admit it took a few moments to figure out how to set the thing, but with a new battery, she is humming along just fine.
Very pleased Gold's not so bad when done right!
