I’m not talking about the name or the logo. I’m talking about the Accutron watch with a real tuning fork in it. These were great watches that paved the way for quartz watches.
Sure, a modern Accutron, tuning fork watch is not going to be as accurate as a quartz watch. I get that. But Bulova still make really handsome mechanical watches, along side quartz watches, and the mechanicals can’t be as accurate as quartz. I’d think a tuning fork watch would be somewhere in between.
But here is what I loved about the Accutron:
- the sweep second hand
- the hum
- the accuracy
- An Accutron went to the Moon
I think Millennials, who like old tech, would love a “real” Accutron and I think older people who had one once would like to have one again. I think it’s time to bring it back. It’s Bulova Time.
