I was going through my "junk" watches and sorting/testing them and found a running Accutron Quartz N7.

It seemed odd to me that the dial is marked at the bottom "T-JAPAN-T". Caseback is stamped Bulova N7, inside the caseback is stamped HONG KONG N-177 and use Bulova cell 247. The movement appears to be a 2431 stamped Bulova Japan..........

WTF???? When did they start using using Japanese movements? Or assembling in Hong Kong? I thought they didn't start using Japanese movements until much later.

There was a working relationship between Bulova and Citizen around that time with Citizen producing some Accutron tuning fork mvts. Could be they also collaborated on the quartz mvts.
