Stylish, sleek, and modernistic, the Accutron hurtled into the 1960s with the force of a launching jet. In the late 1950s, some watches were battery-powered, but those came with major drawbacks. These early electronic watches weren’t more accurate than mechanical watches and often were prone to disrepair.
Enter the Accutron. This watch, put out by the company Bulova, rebuilt electronic watches from the ground up using tuning works. This revolutionary approach increased timekeeping accuracy and the mechanics of watches.
The Accutron completely changed the way people thought about watches. Because of the unique internal parts, the Accutron didn’t have a seconds hand that ticked. Instead, the seconds hand moved smoothly, creating a hum instead of a tick, something never before seen or heard in watchmaking.
The Accutron also embodied the hopeful, futuristic feel of the Space Age with its unique designs. The most iconic space view design features a see-through watch face, to see the mechanics of the unique movement of the watch.
The Accutron was a watch the whole world was watching — so own your own piece of revolutionary history when you buy one of our vintage original Accutron watches from Boomertime.
