Greetings folks, Selling today a very peculiar non-tuning fork Accutron 218 model. From what I've been able to research, when Bulova decided to discontinue servicing tuning forks in the 80s, they offered the ISA-quartz movement as a modification. It is an exact fit, down to the dial and hands. Of course, this model is no longer a tuning fork nicely humming movement with a sweeping seconds, but a testament to the changing times in the watch world in the 80s as quartz took over the world, ticking with a dead-beat seconds hand. **Pictures** (incl. closeups, movement, measurements): [https://imgur.com/a/d2ZYck1](https://imgur.com/a/d2ZYck1) **Timestamp**: [https://imgur.com/RSr49nq](https://imgur.com/RSr49nq) **Info**: * Case: round shaped, 14k goldfilled - 35mm w/o crown \[40.8mm lug2lug, \~17.5mm lug width\] * Case-back: goldfilled, screw-in * Crystal: acrylic, new - very clean, see closeups * Dial: goldtone dial with applied raised Roman numerals - day/date window at 3 * 3-hand analog display; sword-style hands, and central seconds hand * Movement: ISA 1198 quartz module. Runs and kept time during brief duration tested (accuracy not guaranteed), new battery installed at time of posting * Band: new-old-stock dark brown leather strap ​ **Price**: Asking $90 ***obo*** inclusive of all fees for US domestic shipping \[PayPal G+S fees, USPS Priority w/tracking - Venmo also accepted\]. For international shipping, please PM me to discuss proper carrier/shipment methods. Buyer responsible for duty/import/other charge. ​ Check out my other posts for available pieces. ​ Not interested in trades at the moment, sorry :) Relatively new to selling on Reddit, only a couple sales under the belt ([feedback](https://www.reddit.com/r/WatchExchangeFeedback/search?q=sleimanbs&restrict_sr=1)), but have tons of sales on the Bay; you can find me using the same username.
