SOURCE: i have a bulova accutron with a 14KT gold case.

Since the serial number (E66289) begins with a letter, the watch was made in the United States. (Serials that begin with a number indicate the watch was made in Switzerland.) Look at the back again and see if there's a two-character code, such as M2. Compare the code against the list on the following link to find the year of manufacture: http://www.thewatchguy.com/pages/BulovaSerial.html

If it's an Accutron, visit this site to see if it's a 214. He's got a wealth of info on 214s! Good luck!

This sort of information is only likely to be available from an authorised dealer.

If you go to the Boluva web site, you will be able to use their dealer locator to find the one nearest you.

mcdevito75 here, You will need a screwdriver to use in the slot for the battery cover or a coin, once you have the tool for the slot turn the cover just a bit and lift it off to get to the battery.

I'm buying a necklace and pendant that says platinum plated and 14 K gold is it real and what does platinum plated mean


14 k and platinum plated are just words to make junk jewellery look more expensive
real gold is stated in C not k as the word is spelt carat
platinum is a precious metal but when used with the letter K it indicates that what you are looking at buying will have very little value in real terms

Any idea what a Bulova watch, 14K white gold, number on back case 962158. Any idea what it is worth?


I'd need more info. First, is it a "real" Accutron, made from '60 to '77, or is it one of the things Bulova kept calling Accutrons after they stopped making the tuning fork movement watches? The quartz so-called Accutrons are just a nice old watch, not worth anything special. The self-wind "Accutrons", which Bulova is making now, are just a nice, mid-range aurtomatic watch. On the back of Bulova watches is a date code, usually right under the serial number (SNs themselves really mean nothing where Accutrons are concerned). The code is a letter and a number. If it begins with the letter M, or if it begins with the letter N and is followed with a 0, 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. or 6, it is a "real" Accutron, and is collectible. Some with N7 (1977) are also, but it depends on the actual watch. Bulova did make some quartz so-called Accutrons in '77. If it's a '60 thru '76, and SOME '77s, it has value beyond the scrap gold price. SOME Accutrons are even worth thousands of dollars. White gold Accutrons, compared o yellow gold or stainless, are rarer. Next, WHICH Accutron is it? is it a 214, a 218, a 219, a 220, a 224, or a 230? If it's a man's watch, it is very unlikely to be a 220 or 230 series, If it does not have a winding stem on the side, it is a 214. 214s are the most valuable. If it has a setting stem at 3 o'clock or 4 o'clock, it is either a 218 or 219 (I'd have to open the back and look at the movement to say which ine). If it says "Accuquartz" on the face, it's a 224 (NOT a quartz - the 224 Accuquartz is a hybrid of tuning fork and quartz crystal). Once we know the movement series, we need the case type. Certain cases are much more valuable than others. Then there are the Spaceview, the Astronaut, and the Deep Sea, 3 specific models they made, which are more valuable than most (but not all) of the other cases. The best I can say right now is that, being white gold, there's a good chance it's one of the more desireable specific models. If it's a 214, ESPECIALLY if it's a 1960 (M0), it's worth quite a bit more than just the gold content. To be more specific, I'd have to see a picture of the watch, which I don't think can be posted here. Try looking up "Accutron" on Ebay and see if you can find one that, if yours has a stem, has it in the same place as yours, with the exact same case - same shape, and exact same lugs (the things on either end where the band or strap is attached). Read the description. The description will probably say the movement (214, 218, etc - in fact, the movement may even be in the listing title) and if it is niot just a plain round case, probbly will say the case type (Alpha, Asymmetric, Butterfly, etc.). If it's an Astronaut, a Spaceview, or a Deep Sea, it will certainly say that. Also, look at the Accutron section of the Bulova entry in Wikipedia. (Yeah, I wrote it, but it has info that just might help you pin down exactly what you have) When you find out more about which Accutron it is, post another question under Axcutron watches here. I'll check every couple of days for the next week or so, and if I see your post, I'll narrow down the value some more.

I have antique womans gold nugget bulova watch with 014ko and 890643 on the back of the watch should I throw this away


Don't throw it away! Bulova have a good reputation. It ma not be worth much, but you have the serial number and the 14k probably means it's 14 carat gold. 14 carat old is the highest quality used for watches (18 carat is too soft for everyday wear) I used to work for Shackman and we made watch cases and bracelets for the major brands such as Omega.

Trysearching for Bulova watches on eBay then looking at 'completed listings' under 'advanced' after you search for some idea of value.

mcdevito75 here, Bulova Accutron, nice watch, of course there are many, many factors that go into the value of any watch, depending on Maker, Model, Condition of the watch also. I would figure your Bulova Accutron is in the area of $125.00------- $200.00 range. Your best bet is to find a jeweler in your area or an appraiser, even online for the latest value of your watch.
