Just this one at the moment. One of my favourites, very nice quality only let down slightly by weak lume. Not sure about the colour of the strap though, think I'm going to have to try something different.

I agree the brown just doesn't look right, the one on my white Accurist above has the similar shine to the strap (particularly having used the ultra sonic cleaner on it this morning) and is very comfortable. I would normally have leather on a dress watch but I bought this one pre-owned on EBay with the strap shown as an extra to a black leather one which was fitted and didn't look just right. Having put on the one shown I really like it.

I sent an email to Accurist asking for any information on dating their watches and got this reply.

Dear Steve

 

I am sorry but we took over Accurist watches in 2014 and unfortunately we do not have history or information on the watches

 

Please accept our apologies

 

 

 

Regards

Does anyone have any information at all?

My Accurist Grand Complication Limited Edition

https://ibb.co/XJrK4pC

https://ibb.co/WfYq0BB

Was left non-working for years after being told by two different repair shops they couldn't open the back etc. However with a recently bought repair kit I was able to change the battery and get it working again! but I need a bit more knowledge  to get it perfect again as the date hand keeps moving?! Will post at some point asking if anyone has experience of repairing/removing case etc.

A great British brand name, and I do hope interested "Accuristees" will read my Forum contributions on Accurist. I draw your attention to my textual article entitled, "A Family Affair: The Accurist Story, 1946-2014", posted on 28 June 2019 in my topics section of the Forum. I also wrote a Forum topic on the Accurist Accu.2 range of watches entitled, "Accu.2 To You Too", posted on 11 September 2016, also in my topics section. The search feature of the Forum will bring these up for anyone to read.:biggrin:

During a drawer rummage, I found this Accurist day/date watch bought for me circa. 1985.

Coincidentally, I have been looking to add a LHD watch to my collection.

Well that's that itch scratched and saved a few quid. :thumbs_up:

I like that. It still has the classic style of my hand-winding Shockmaster.

Hello all

My local watch repair shop has had a look at my 80's Accurist and says the battery has corroded the internal unit and not repairable.

Unfortunately, the back was stuck back on before I could get a pic.

I will try get a pic up shortly but could anyone suggest a source for 80's quartz Accurist movements?

Thanks

Would that be a Miyota movement?

My 90's Accurist had problems with the stem keep coming out and got shoved in a drawer. Eventually it stopped working but 12 months ago I decided to sort it and found that it was a Miyota which was discontinued. Miyota list all their movements with specs and diagrams on their website. I found an alternative was available so acquired one and fitted it. 

If yours is Miyota it will be one of the more expensive ones because of the 6 hands but it won't break the bank.

I'll get the back off it today and get some pics up.

Cheers.

Not Swiss for some time now. They have a Japanese movement, Miyota in the ones I've seen, but assembled in China I think. Not knocking them though - I tend to like Accurist. I recently bought one with a 10year battery life for £3.10. The cyclops was battered so I removed it and I fitted a new gold coloured bracelet, otherwise pretty much unmarked.
