Probably wouldn't care too much. At least it's still an Accutron movement, and not a quartz conversion. Speaking of which, I recently opened the caseback of an Accutron that was a service award (Exxon I believe) for my wife's grandfather. I thought it would be a 2181 movement, but after hearing my inlaw's story about taking it to a jeweler (Macy's if I recall) and having it sent back and forth, and told it couldn't be fixed and such, I was surprised to find a Bulova (non working) quartz within. They may have been taken by a deceptive jeweler, or Bulova did the switch? They can't recall the details as it was attempted to be repaired many years ago. Would Bulova ask first, prior to replacing a tuning fork movement with a quartz, or just do it and send back a working watch? I've told them they could; if they wanted to, return it to original specs, which they may do.
