Here are some better pictures:

Interestingly if you convert the price, it looks like they cost the equivalent of $860 in Japan. Of course the Yen has gone up recently, but that is ridiculous.

nice looking watch, but 43mm is a little too small for me

This watch does not make sense from a price point. A purist would want an automatic movement and an accuracy freak would want the Bulova Precisionist for about the same money if you wait for a sale.

Accutron is Bulova's high-line - Caravelle is low-line, Bulova-branded is middling.

In a quartz, I'd only be interested in one of the first Accutrons, but whatever floats your boat.

Here is an interesting history of the Accutron line.

I would be interested to know the exact movement used in this watch, as it would be helpful when comparing to other lines, like Precisionist.

Half of everything they made after 1979 is cheap junk inside of a pretty case. EVERYTHING after 2007 is just as cheap. They are pretty cases stuffed with the same movements as $10-$30 watches.

That's interesting. I know that Shinola uses $10 to $20 movements (Ronda) in their $600 watches, but I don't know what Accutron is using. Can you be a bit more specific?

Hmmmm so tempting. This is a really good looking watch and I'm normally a Citizen fan.

Agreed. Automatic movements have intrinsic value at least in an age where we are bombarded with techy crap.

Anything over $200 is worth getting a mechanical movement and most watch enthusiasts don't wear the same watch anyway so accuracy shouldn't be a problem.

That's probably right. So a better movement than you find in Shinola, but not even close to what you find in a Grand Seiko.

That's not true. Lots of enthusiast have multi thousand dollar quartz watches. Just look at the HAQ subforum.

Okay...I'll admit, I've been a Fossil wearer, knowing that they make most "luxury" watches you find in L&T, Macy's, Nords etc...

Their watches are durable and the designs are nice, why should I "upgrade" to one of these? I usually don't use my watch to tell time...it's more of an accessory. I guess I just gave away my age, but please educate me.

I don't think you "need" this at all. As a fashion accessory, you need to decide if it fits your lifestyle.

By the way, Fossil is not a "luxury" brand, but a "fashion" brand.

Luxury brand examples include A Lange and Sohne, Audemars Piguet, Blancpain, Breguet, JLC, Patek Phillipe, Ulysse Nardin, and Vacheron Constantin.

Fashion brand examples include Fossil, Versace, Gucci, Diesel, Calvin Klein, and Michael Kors.

Bulova, Seiko, Timex, etc. might be classified as sport or budget watches, but there are exceptions. For instance, Seiko also makes some luxury models that go up to $500,000 for one watch. And Timex makes Versace and a number of other fashion brands.
