The year made cannot be determined from the SN. Since the '50s Bulova used a 2 character date code, usually below the SN. The letter is the decade, the number is the year. For example, M4 is 1964, N6 is 1976, O5 is 1985, etc. As to value, if it is from 1960 through 1976 (M0 thru N6) it is a "true" Accutron, with a tuning fork movement, is collecrible and valuable, and the actual value depends on which specific movement and which case. Some 1977 (N7) Accutrons are akso collectible rtuning fork watches, but some 1977s are Bulova's first quartz watches, and of no value. Bulova eventually went mostly automatic (self-winding mechanical movement) with their Accutron line. Those are well-made, mid to upper-mid level watches, and of no particular value beyond that of most any good used automatic. Note, however, that there have been numerous versions of the automatic Accutrons, some fancier and nmore expensive than others, and, s ith any good watch, original cost will have an effect on value as a used watch. For example, that retailed at, say, $500 new in 2009 will be worth more today than one that was $250 new in 2009 (assuming comparable condition). There are also now some Accutron IIs, which mimic, in looks and the sweep second hand, the original tuning fork Accutrons. However, while they are well-made watches, they are just another nice quartz watch.

Recently lost the 4 screws that fastens the back plate of my Accutron Breckenridge 26B29. Am looking for wrist band extensions for this watch too. I tried Bulova but they were of no help. Any ideas of where I could find these parts or even just the dimensions of the screws?

The name for your keepsake is accutron. The tuning fork represents the two coils. Having said that unfortunately if it no longer works their is little you can do. They have been out of production for some time now. But you can replace the entire movement, eBay will be the best place to start for a reasonable price. Your local jeweler will soak you. The most common battery replacement is a renata 394 although i cant be sure unless I see the movement.

A good way to get a realistic value for your watch is to search for it on eBay, having ticked the 'Sold Items' box. Be sure to get the spelling for your Bulova watch right!

Not sure about the case code....but Bulova used a numeric code to 'date' their watches: "L" meant the 1950's; "M" was the 60's; "N" was the 70's....so your M7 means your watch was made in 1967....an N3, would be 1973. Get it?.

Serial numbers are generally on the back of the watch.

You may be able to find two or three numbers on the watch.

A case number, a movement number and a serial number.Alternatively you might find a style number (which in your case is 26B44) and a serial number.
