Description

Bulova AccuSwiss Type A-15 Elapsed Time Automatic Stainless Steel Limited Edition of 500This is not the PVD production model; Bulova only made the stainless steel model as a limited edition.
This is number 69/500, which is engraved on the caseback.
This is a fantastic vintage reissue, perhaps the best Ive ever seen from any brand.
It is based on a watch that Bulova (then an American company) designed for the USAF, which never went into production.
The watch comes with a booklet explaining the history.
I bought this preowned on f29 about It was very lightly worn while I had it, and has been packed up for sale for 4 months now.
Ill put cosmetic condition at very very good to be on the safe side; there are some swirls, and a scuff on the caseback. The OEM pigskin strap is unworn. Mechanically, watch runs and keeps good time, sets and winds nicely, and the crowns rotate smoothly yet have enough resistance to prevent accidental movement.Its an extremely useful watch: the 12-hour rotating disc works great as a dual time indicator; combined, the 12-hour and 60-minute discs are great for tracking elapsed time. The MSRP in 2014 was $1,495.00.ASKING:
