    Hi everyone ... Just a question... If the word "astronaut" was only introduced on the accutrons in late 1962, how could the 1961 Accutron Gold 18KT "astronaut" (M1) exist? I can't understand ... maybe I missed a part of the accutron story.

    I just got my 1963 space view 214, and I have the hour and minute hands set correctly but my second hand is about 40 seconds behind my phones clock which I was trying to set it to. Is there any way to set the second hand, it just kept sweeping when adjusting the other hands.

    Hi all, hoping you can help me with a newb question. I have a pair of Spaceview T double cushions, but I'm pretty sure both of them have swapped movements. Is it true these should both have the gold-plated pillar plate? I've been trying to read through all the movement number posts on this...

    Hi, I am a new member and this is my first post. I have really taken an interest in the 214 Accutrons in the last year and have started a nice collection of mostly Spaceviews. I'm a Boomer myself and they remind of my childhood when I thought they were the coolest thing ever but could not...

    Hi all, I am new to this forum, so excuse me if I post something that has been discussed before. I searched but did not find an answer to my question. But let me first start with myself.

    Have a Bulova Accutron 2181 N3 10k gold watch with the original 10k gold Speidel twistoflex band. At the 6 o'clock or bottom end of the watch case is a large symbol which swirls counterclockwise which looks similar to the @. It is more like a large C with the top end of the symbol swirling...

    I must hesitantly tell my story because I feel that it needs to be told. But please understand, this is not a slander or rant. It is an unfortunate outcome regarding someone who has posted here in the past, and in my internet search led me here as a forum for these particular watches. Last...

    Hello, This Bulova I have since today in my collection, but I do not know anything about it. It is 14kt gold and what I read about it it is a very rare model. I changed this watch for a Rolex Precision stainless steel. I want to know if this is worth it, because I like gold watches. Thanks...

    This is weird... I'm running out of space (pun intended) in my 2 watch boxes, so I've segregated my Spaceview 214 M9 to it's own 1960's Accutron wooden box. This box was designed to display the watch on its side. If I store it with the right (3:00) side facing down, it seems to be OK. But if...
