This limited edition Legacy collection timepiece from Accutron is a timepiece like no other. It is a bold reimagining of the “21343-9W” from 1974, with a truly unique tonneau case design and crown placement at 4 o’clock. The silver-tone stainless steel case has a three-link bracelet with double-press closure, and a silver-tone dimensional dial with applied faceted hour markers. But, it doesn’t just rely on looks alone — it is also powered by Accutron’s Swiss-made 26-jewel movement to guarantee quality and reliability, for a luxury watch that will withstand the test of time.
THE “TV” WATCH
Throughout the 60s and 70s television programming blossomed and infiltrated American households like neverbefore, with families often gathered around their TVs. Accutron’s 261 watches represented this cultural shift as the brand designed many timepieces inspired by the space-age look of TVs at that time, with the 261 boasting a big, bold linear cushion shape with an organic exaggerated domed circle in the center. Coinciding, the world of art was transforming with movements such as Pop Art, Conceptual Art, and Minimalism taking lead. The brand,inspired by these movements, brought to life these designs in their timepieces that would then transcendgenerations. The highly coveted 261 watches from 1971 are some of the most commemorated and were known as the “TV watches.” Today the 261 Legacy collection timepieces return offering a retro look with a modern twist.
