    Description

    Harry S. Truman: Gold Bullova Accutron Wristwatch. Bullova Accutron wristwatch with alligator strap and gold buckle. The back cover is stamped: "Bullova 14K Waterproof Patented C62084 MO". The Bullova Accutron was introduced in 1960 and, based on the configuration on the back cover, this watch likely dates 1960-1965. It is an Alpha Model with a "214" movement. It appears to be in never used, mint condition and may just need a battery to activate it. The original mercury oxide battery is in place and is in pristine condition, though depleted. It was purchased together with other items that belonged to President Harry S. Truman. While it may have belonged to his son-in-law Clifton Daniel, we believe it was just one of many gifts the President received and never got around to wearing. Provenance: Doyle's Jewelry Sale, February 25, 2014, lot 564, Estate of Margaret Truman Daniel.
