Vintage ladies Bulova Accutron in an 18 karat yellow gold case and bracelet.
This is a very unusual and well made piece of jewelry.
The presence of the watch is in my view secondary to the striking design of the bracelet. It is extremely well made. Hollow construction with heavy weight wall thickness. Total weight of gold is 78.3 grams. I would estimate the non gold parts to weigh about 5 grams. At the present gold market there is over $3200 worth of gold alone here !!! I have seen many watches in the last 25 years of collecting. I search the Internet extensively when researching watches and have never come across one of this design. Had you commissioned a good jeweler to make you a piece like this you’d be expected to pay much more then the price we have set.
The bracelet’s inner measurement is 58 mm by 45mm (2.25″ by 1.75″) and the width can be reduced at the clasp by about 8 mm.
Measuring on the outside it is 66 mm when locked in first position and 62 mm when locked to the smallest position. The watch case measures 23.3 mm in diameter and the opposing cylinder measures 13.9 mm across. Distance across both is 41.1 mm.
We had the quartz movement serviced in Oct. 2013 and it runs very well.
The dial reads BULOVA ACCUTRON QUARTZ and SWISS with sigma signs on each side. This sigma signifies the fact that all applied hour markers are made of solid 18K gold !! There are a few very minor nicks on the gold but not very noticeable and we left them alone.
The watch is stamped with 750 for 18K gold and hallmarked as well. Priced at $6655
