Accutron’s Legacy Collection celebrates some of the most noteworthy designs from the brand’s past and has now brought back the original 412 more than 50 years on.
Inspired by the design-centric, fashion-forward attitudes of 1969, the 412 watch is directly influenced by the Ivy League style of dress that began to emerge in the late 50’s through the 60’s.
Later known as “preppy fashion,” this movement served as an important need for the brand to design the perfect accessory to accompany this style.
A historically significant timepiece for the brand, as it is the original case design for Accutron’s iconic Spaceview, the 412 is a classic featuring a 34mm gold-tone stainless steel round case with the same unique bull horn lugs and crown placement at 4 o’clock.
The 3-hand silver white dial boasts gold-tone applied and faceted hour markers and a domed sapphire crystal with AR coating making for a refined and elegant look.
Water resistant to 30M, the 412 is powered by Accutron’s Swiss Made 26-jewel movement and is limited to 600 pieces.
Commenting on the release, Jeffrey Cohen, president of Citizen Watch America, said: “Accutron is well known for taking inspiration from particular cultural moments.”
Adding: “The 412 is a perfect example of the influence those times had on the brand’s design approach.”
The 412 watch retails for $1,450.
