Has anyone ever seen a Bulova Accutron like this? I had a jeweler check it, and case and band are 18K solid gold. Movement is a 214 H. It is a 1964. Thanks. attachment.jpg attachment.jpg attachment.jpg

Thanks. I just didn't know if anyone would have any other info on it, as I could only find one other in like a newspaper ad picture online. I guess there is not much more to know about it.

Not a whole lot they can do without some serial numbers and photos of the movement and inside the case.

That's better. The "H" in 214H means that the movement came from the factory with a hack spring installed. What is the number at the bottom right side of the movement? I can't tell what it is.

couple fo anecdotal comments, these from own experience (not hard research)

18k 214's are scarce enough. Highely desirable. Out of the thousands of 214's I have owned perhaps 2% are 18k

And out of these, I have never owned an 18k white gold one.

I think you may have something quite rare.. but please check to see if this is white goldplated over yellow or rhodiumed!

Thanks for sharing and good luck!

It's a ultra rare 1964 Bulova Accutron Swiss Chapter Ring 18kt Solid White Gold Case & Bracelet with 4 Baguettes Diamond Hour Markers !

Your watch is the first time outside of this Swiss ad that I've ever seen one !

This dial is from myBob dial30.jpg And shows the 4 Baguettes Diamond Hour Markers !

Rhodium is overplated over white gold to keep it looking good.

Yes, I've had the watch checked by a jeweler. Solid 18K band and case.

Not quite as exotic but fairly rare.
A 218D movement in an 18K solid pocket watch case, working fine too.

There is no reason to think otherwise.
Any others out there?

Ah, that's the first picture I have ever seen of this model, even better in a Bulova catalogue, thanks.

Beautiful watch. This is why I'm a watch enthusiast. You never know what interesting time piece you might find.
