HISTORY OF ACCUTRON
Electronics engineer Max Hetzel was the genius behind Accutron's ground-breaking patented tuning fork technology which he started creating in the late 1950's.
The name originates from the ACCuracy through elecTRONICS, and in the 1960's they produced over 5 million watches. Officially launched as Baselworld in 1960, then relaunched in 2010 to celebrate their 50th anniversary, this latest release combines the original ingenuity with modern aesthetics for a cutting-edge watch.
