We reject the idea that vintage has to mean, rusty, scratched, dirty or untested. FANTASTIC 14KT GOLD CASE ASYMMETRIC 1969 ACCUTRON 218-1 - HUMS NEEDS ACCUTRON SERVICE. This beautiful solid gold asymmetric Accutron is from my personal collection. Was not getting a lot of wear (not any really) so I'm putting it up for sale. Looks fantastic with the black dial against gold.NOTE: This movement requires service by a qualified Accutron repair shop.

Until last week this movement ran perfectly for the last 12 months keeping excellent time (gaining about +1 secs/day).
The stem had always been a bit loose feeling and just before listing it slipped out. I was able to reinsert it and the watch "hums", the "hack" function works, and the sweep second hand moves but the stem is not in the correct position and the watch does not continue to keep time after 7-10 minutes.Sometimes with vintage watches, there can be unknown internal or case wear issues revealed upon close inspection or during a professional service. Grade: 9/10 Great Used/Vintage Cosmetic Condition. Case: 14KT Gold case, 33mm case (excluding crown), 17mm Lugs.
