Accutrons ceased production in 1977 because quartz watches could be made more inexpensively and more accurately. Although the early Accutrons tend to be more coveted by collectors, the late model Accutrons have that great 70s style, of which this is a perfect example.
The sparkly gold faceted hour indicators on the dial of this watch sparkle like a disco ball in the sun while dial has a pearly sheen. This is the heaviest Accutron that I've ever encountered and fits right in with the large chunky men's watches that tend to be popular today.
This Accutron uses the 2182 movement which features the day and date. One nice thing about the 2182 movement is that the day and date click over sharply at midnight rather than changing slowly over several minutes like most other movements. If you listen closely, you can hear the date tick over at midnight!
