ACCUTRON HISTORY-AS TOLD BY ADVERTISEMENTS

1975 through 1977

Click on the thumbnails to see a larger ad. Remember-They will take some time to load at the large size.

I have designed this site for historical and educational purposes. As an added bonus, we get to see photos of Accutrons as they came from the factory. Viewers are encouraged to contribute ads, displays and press releases they may have for inclusion. I will be working on this as an on going project and encourage active participation. Thanks, Tom Mister.

1975

What goes around - Comes around. Today, a whole new set of power cell problems has been known to give some of us a black eye!

1976

  

This press release from May, 1976 tells of a kit of watch straps for the mini Accutrons, similar to the MOD bands shown on the Misc. and unknown dates page of this site.

This ad was from October, 1976. The watches were lower priced-and it showed! The next month, there was a 2 page ad for Bulova LED digitals.
This ad is from a 1976 Promotions Book given out to jewelers for advertising purposes. Note the low prices now--starting at $75.

 

1977

This ad from January, 1977 was the last one I have found so far. It also stressed affordability. The next month, there was a 2 page ad for the Accutron Quartz 242 series.
