Time changed in 1960 when Accutron was first introduced to the market in a wearable timepiece. Touted for its microsonic accuracy (guaranteed 99.9977% accurate in actual use), this brand credited its precision to the tuning fork which took the place of the springs, balance wheel and other moving parts. The name Accutron stands for "Accuracy through Electronic," paying homage to the electrostatic motor that makes these watches some of the most precise in existence.

Despite the halt of Accutron production in 1977, these watches remained influential during this era. Accutrons were used as timing instruments for the U.S. Government aboard satellites, and they were the first timepiece certified for use by railroads in the United States. Worn by Elvis Presley and on board over 20 space missions throughout the 1960s, the re-imagination of these iconic timepieces for their 60th anniversary is indeed a special occasion.

 

With its deconstructed outer case design and exposed tuning fork movement, the 1960s Accutron Spaceview was a feat of technical supremacy for the brand. Now, the Accutron Spaceview has been re-imagined paying homage to the original model with its open-work dial. The 2020 version also has proprietary next-generation electrostatic energy movement that powers the timepiece. The breathtaking green accents on the dial make this watch one of the sharpest, most recognizable watches currently on the market.
