Bulova Accutron Spaceview 14 K Solid Gold '60 Rare :
Up for sale is a rare Spaceview Alpha 14K Solid Gold watch made in 1960 ~ was the firtst year Alpha Model was made !! Clearly marked MO meaning 60 !!! It also clearly engraved BULOVA 14K on the case !!! There are no major dents on the bezel nor on the back !!! I had it serviced last year and it is running well. Though it is not accurate as quartz watches !!!! Since I am living in Japan , if it is sold to a buyer in the States or Europe , I will purposely take the battery out when I ship it . When you put the battery back carefully and if it does not activate and no humming sound , carefully wrap the watch in a cloth and gentally bang the side of the watch and it will start to hum and set the watch and you are ready to wear the watch and show off !!!! Here in Tokyo , sometimes at a coffee shop someone would ask me what kind of watch is that ? And I start telling it is a solid gold watch and was made in the 60's and and works on a principle of tuning fork ,people comment , it looks as though it was made in the 2000 !!!!!!!!! Well , you can own it and use it as a conversation piece !!!!! Good luck and enjoy wearing it !!!!! The watch measures : 3.5mm lug to lug 4.5mm . Weighs 33grams without the band . Gold alone is worth 1troy ounce is 31.1 =$1770 Assuming the mechanism in the case weighs half of that
33divided by 2 =16.5 1 gram = $56.90 Let's say , mechanism weighs 23grams , 10x$56.90= 569 Wow ! Even gold alone is worth more than $569.00 !!! I am not insinuating , take it apart and sell the gold !! And one more thing , I sent the buckle to the gold smith to plate it in gold color , it was 14k solid white gold buckle ( it is engraved BULOVA inside ,original ). I should be receiving the buckle soon !!
Noticed after uploaded the photos , the band at the spring is a little bit short so I'll make sure I will put the new band when it is sold />On Jul-11-13 at 19:20:29 PDT, seller added the following information:
