Bulova Accutron II Spaceview At first glance on the wrist this watch presents itself as something that came from the Art Deco era. The silver case black leather band and slightly raised crystal remind me of industrial design of the time. A subjective opinion and somewhat surprising as the watch was designed in 2014 as a reimagined version of it's famed predecessor from the 1960s. The white luminous handset pop against the skeletonized quartz movement.
The luminous index markers set a very satisfying contrast against the green background which has become synonymous with all Spaceview models past and present. The case design of the Accutron II Alpha is very similar to the Spaceview 214 from the 60s Both have scalloped lugs. As well as the unique case design.
There is a pull out crown at 3 o clock which is signed with the tuning fork logo. The high frequency precisionist quartz movement shows off with a very satisfying sweeping second hand. This example is in superb condition, the polished and brushed sections on the stainless steel case are sharp and distinct at the transitions.
There are no perceptible hairline scratches on the polished steel (often the case on pre-owned watches) there is one very tiny mark on the case (I wouldn't have noticed it had the previous owner not pointed it out to me) please see photo 12 which has been cropped and expanded to show the defect. To the eye it is barely noticable when looking for it. Imperceptible at glance in my opinion. I can't confirm that the strap is original, as it is not stamped "Bulova" on the inside as I have seen in other examples.
It is of good quality leather and is true to the original. The case back is held in place with 4 screws and is engraved with the following nomenclature C877587 18162654 Ultra High Frequency, B5 Stainless Steel 96A155. Photos #1 and 2 are professional ad copy not the actual piece. But the other photos are of the actual item represent the flaws in the description.
