Additional Information

This is a Accutron bowtie case, with a 218D movement. From ads found on this site I believe it's a model 218, however I haven't found any model 218 adds with a date and black dial. The photos make its condition look a lot worse than it does with the naked wye. Is this a real 218 or a 218 case with different movement/dial. It does keep excellent time.

Thank you for posting your watch.  This one is one of my favorites and I just picked up a silver dial version of this which also has a date.   The dial and movement most likely are correct for the watch.

Thank you for the watch identification. I should have posted here a long time ago. Apparently this was an expensive watch in 1965. I wear this and an Accutron CK regularly.
