Calibre Bulova 228S - Circa 1969
Do you know the fabulous story of Accutron? It is closely linked to Max Hetzel, its inventor. A physicist at the Institute for Technical Physics at the University of Zurich, he began his watchmaking career at Bulova where he invented and patented the Accutron movement in the mid-1950’s.
The model we present here dates back to the end of the 1960’s and bears the Accutron signature. A lot of its charm lies in the shape of its case and dial. The steel case, which measures 32.5 mm by 40 mm, is both rectangular and rounded at the same time and has a beautiful brushed finish. .
The dial, boasting a fairly captivating midnight blue, remains relatively sober with its thin almost “floating” stick hour markers.
