Bulova Accutron Watches
Accutron, developed in 1952, was the first big breakthrough in timekeeping technology in 300 years. The first fully electronic timepiece, Accutron promised to keep time to within 2 seconds a day. NASA used Accutron technology in space program computers.
To some watch purists, Accutron might not be a true brand name, but the Accutron can make a unique gift to last a very long time.
Accutron's legendary 25-year warranty is available from all authorized watch dealers.
