New Proper & Correct 1.35 Volt Cells!
(1.35 volt is the correct
and original voltage that Bulova engineered and designed
to run properly in all of their Accutron 214 and 218 watches!!)
These batteries are the
Power Cells for EITHER
At long last we
now have the perfect solution for the long-standing Accutron power
cell problem !! Buy several of these & save on shipping costs. They
have a great shelf life, and that shelf life can be extended many
times over by placing them air tight & dry in Zip-Lock bags and
storing in your own home refrigerator.
However, NEVER put them in the freezer, that will kill the battery!! When
the Bulova Corp. designed and engineered the world's first tuning fork
movement Accutron watches, they were engineered to use an
uninterrupted power source of 1.33 to 1.35 volts. The perfect power
source for these watches were the low drain 343 and 387 1.35 volt
mercury oxide batteries. For nearly 40 years, these batteries kept
Accutron collectors as well as Accutron Certified Technicians and
watch repair persons completely happy. Unfortunately, several years
ago, some federal bureaucrat decided for us, that we should not have
any more of these batteries for our watches. The production of all
mercury oxide batteries stopped. This presented quite a problem for
thousands of Accutron fanatics and repair people alike! We no longer
had the proper battery for our Accutron's! We knew it would not take
long for the small world supply of 343 and 387 batteries to become
nonexistent. This left us with two unpleasant choices.
Choice No. 1 was to somehow miraculously locate & hoard however many
of the few original batteries that were still in existence, and
paying absolutely insane prices for them. We have observed original
batteries selling in excess of $45. Each. Choice No. 2 was even less
acceptable. Soon after the world learned there was no readily
available supply of Accutron batteries, new "substitute" batteries
came into the market. Unfortunately most watch makers, and almost none
of the Accutron collectors realized these were the wrong voltage for
the Accutron watch. The new "substitute" batteries were all 1.5 volt
silver oxide power cells. We have even heard so-called "watch experts"
tell their clients that all that needs to be done is to have their
cherished Accutron "re-phased" or adjusted so their movement would
burn these hotter or stronger batteries.
