I recently brought this old Accutron back to life after sitting in a box for yearly 40 years. This is quite an interesting watch and I am told it was quite the rage to own one of these since it was so "space age". The Accutron movement was also used in satellites, as clocks for the Apollo space program, and were worn by X-15 pilots. You can't get much cooler than that. This 1972 watch was my father's and he probably wore it a year or two - until the battery died and then stuck it in a drawer.

The "starting" price of an Accutron in 1960 was $125 (over $1000 in today's money)
