    Bulova Accutron Men's 65B142 Masella

    Hello all, I am considering the Bulova Accutron Men's 65B142 Masella. Wondering if anyone knows if this has a sweep second hand or one that ticks second by second?

    It is a quartz watch, so it ticks rather than sweep. That said, being a chronograph, running second hand is on the 3 o'clock subdial - so it will be hard to see if it's ticking or sweeping either way.

    My Bulova Accutron II has a sweep motion. I can't find if this model uses a UHF movement.

    Hi DD and welcome to the forum.

    Bulova's range is large and confusing. They have quartz with ticking hands and quartz with a smooth gliding second sweep. Bulova Accutrons may also come with Citizen automatic mechanical movements whereas Bulova 'Accuswiss' come with Swiss automatic mechanical movements.

    Generally:
    'Accutron' (Quartz) have ticking second hands. 'Accutron II' are also quartz but with smooth second hand, and are always 3 hand watches meaning no chrono function. Bulova's 'Precisionist' range have smooth second hands and are available as 3 hand watches or Chrono but are usually extra large and thick to accomodate the big battery required to run the smooth second hand. Both the Precisionist line and Accutron II are HAQ (high accuracy quartz) rated to within 10seconds a year. All precisionist will have the word 'PRECISIONIST' written clearly on the dial and the same with Accutron II. Both will cost quite a bit more than regular 'Accutron' quartz but still affordable as watch prices go.

    The watch in your picture probably is a regular ticking quartz.
    Hope that helps.

    Just want to add one more variant to the list: The UHF 262 kHz "Military" series. They are smaller than the older "Precisionist" models, about the same size as the "Accutron II" series. There are currently four models, two are three-hand, two are chrono. All have the smooth second hand "HAQ" movement. I have the 96B230...
