Accutron Has Crafted The World’s Very-First Electrostatic Movement Watch

Aug 19, 2020

Category: Style

Bulova originally created its “Accutron” watch line all the way back in 1960, and since then, the brand has decided to part ways with the model’s historic name. Now, Accutron is back and better than ever with its most recent watch — an interesting and innovative timepiece that relies on its unique electrostatic movement to keep it overtly accurate.

The Accutron Electrostatic “DNA” Watch, as it’s been dubbed, will feature a proprietary system that acts as an alternative to traditional watch architecture, introducing a twin-turbine internal structure that utilizes movement to create energy, store it, and utilize it at a later date. Although electrostatic technology has been used in the past — sometimes, as far back as the 18th century — Accutron states that the DNA is the first watch to adopt the interesting capacitor system, making it an attractive proposition for collectors who want to get their hands on a piece of the past. Of course, none of this would make much sense without a tasteful housing to put it in. The DNA calls upon a 45.1mm stainless steel case, a matte black open-work dial, and a double-press black strap to retain its aesthetic prowess. Head to Accutron’s website to pick up the watch for $3,300.
