    I am not a watch guy, I am still getting my feet wet in the suit/fabrics realm.

    In the under $1000 range, has anyone heard of Accutron? They look nice and, I believe, are made in Switzerland.



    That used to be a name worth discussing..when they were made by Bulova and they were tuning fork equipped electric movements. I had piles of them. Wonderful vintage watches.
