This ladies Accurist watch has an integrated bark bracelet, and a 21 jewel mechanical movement.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
The movement fitted to this watch was in production between 1965 and 1972, and later models had various amendments and were designated 1977-2, 1977-3 etc. This watch movement has none of these extra numbers, so must have been towards the beginning of the production range.
Fewer women collect watches than men, so the prices of things like this Ladies Accurist represent great value for money. Inside is a AS1977 movement, normally fitted with 17 jewels acting as smooth bearings for extra hard wearing surfaces, but Accurist increased this to 21 jewels, all fully functional (some watches had a ‘jewel off’, where you had decorative jewels on the movement to increase the number of jewels to 77 or even 100, but that was a bit of silliness from the normally sane Swiss as only a fraction of those jewels were actually needed). The bracelet has the bark finish, barely showing any wear, but it does have a nice effect in various lights. The dial is clean, and the movement is keeping good time. For the price of a modern quartz Accurist you can have a Swiss made mechanical vintage watch – we know where our money would go.
This watch will be supplied with our branded presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
