Where's the catch? Quartz in the Accutron II has AFAIK somewhat lower frequency than in the Precisionist and the rated accuracy is lower - 5 sec/month vs. 10 sec/year. Accutron II is also thicker, 12 mm vs 9.3 mm in otherwise comparable models (I'm looking at Surveyor - Langford, both with bracelet). And yet Accutron II is (much) more expensive than comparable Precisionist. Surveyor is $390, Langford $130, both on the Amazon. OK, so the Precisionist is older model, but it's still in the actual Bulova's catalogue, so not out of production or NOS. Is there any advantage of the Accutron II that I'm missing (apart from the looks, which is a matter of taste).
