Over the past few years Accutron has stepped out from under the Bulova umbrella and is reviving past classics. The Accutron Legacy collection represents watches originally created in the 1960s and reflects the design-centric and free-thinking fashion of that era. The brands Legacy “565” and “203” watches (also known as the “Football Watches”) were both originally launched in 1966. 

In the original it was the distinctive asymmetrical cases that brought about the “football” nickname with two versions in either a crosshatch pattern or gold relief version, both now re-created. These modern versions reimagine the classic with an updated, Swiss-made 26-jewel movement. The new Legacy “565” features the cross-hatching pattern on the bezel of the silver-tone stainless steel 34mm case. ($1,390). The “203” design features a 34mm gold- and silver-tone stainless steel case with a three-hand champagne dial, Arabic numerals, and fine-line stick markers on the outer ring ($1,450). Both pieces are water resistant to 30M and are individually numbered and limited to 600 pieces.  In an unending sea of round watches, these Accutron Legacy watches offer a few new curves that will stand out from the crowd.
