    Spaceview - How do you spot a real one?

    So I'm still interested in a Spaceview Accutron but I have seen articles about how there are more in circulation than were every produced.
    I've read abut chapter rings and the like, but how do I know if what I'm looking at is the real deal?

    Unless you can educate yourself in all the specifics, I'd just go to a reputable dealer who has done their due diligence.

    A minefield it is!

    Take a look at the electric Watches website or indeed ask Paul for some tips.

    Have a look at the offers from well-known Accutron ebay seller anticvarius. He has this one at the mo' which looks kosher to me

    Thanks everyone, there are some for £200 and some for £1200, like you said, it's a minefield!

    Accutronitis is the self acknowledged world authority on these.

    Evidently the watch I linked to has been sold - so now Ebay's software, as a useful aid to potential purchasers, automatically links to a similar product. Not a similar watch from the same seller, not another Accutron, not even another Bulova but a Casio which couldn't be further in any way from the original item. And people are worried about AI.

    If someone uses original parts to do a conversion, I donít think there is any way to tell.
