AHS Junior Varsity Tops Ledyard 04 ACCUTRON SPACtVltWH" Transparent dial lets you see the space movement, Ws- t e r p r o of*, shock-protected, adjustable band. $150,00 Unfortunately. Accutron looks like a watch We don't call it a watch. All the parts that make a watch fast or slow have been left out. The balance wheel, springs, staff and screws. Accutron does not use these parts. Instead, a tiny tuning fork keeps time through vibrations that are battery powered. Accutron time is so precise that we guarantee* average monthly accuracy within 60 seconds, which averages out to about 2 seconds a day. And we know owners who have not gained or lost this in a year. However, don't let this make you think that Accutron prices are higher than a fine watch. (Remember, a lot of parts were left out.) We believe the Accutron timepiece to be the finest and most precise wrist timepiece ever made. We have a wide variety of handsome models. $125 and up.
