Bulova Watch Co. "Accutron Snorkel 666 Feet", Case No. 3-645797, Cal. 2182 G, 40 mm, circa 1970
A rare vintage tuning fork regulated wristwatch for divers with date and day indicator written in Italian - with original box Case: steel, screw back. Dial: blue. Movm.: electromechanical precision tuning fork movement.
Bulova used the Accutron 218 series to try out different hacking mechanisms; the later types are marked by a letter after the four digit calibre number. This shows for example, that Accutron 2182G has a more complex electrical contact system than its predecessors - it has become an integral part of the component coil. For this a new hole was made in the main movement plate; also the stem has now three setting positions, which are "normal", "first" (hacking the mechanism without disconnecting the battery, and "second" (disconnecting the battery).
