While we might not have a tendency to think about the fashions that got here out of the 60s and 70s as being something significantly timeless or traditional (within the conventional sense, not less than), there are some components of it that do persist. For occasion – whereas Ivy League type actually took maintain within the Nineteen Fifties, it continued on into the Nineteen Sixties and lead straight into the “preppy type”. And a watch that captured that type again then has been re-introduced – the Accutron Legacy 412.
Though, to be truthful – whereas Ivy League and preppy type, we have a tendency to think about males’s clothes (or not less than I do, being a man). While this watch may match smaller wrists, I’d say the 34mm Accutron Legacy 412 is aimed extra for the ladies. It’s additionally a time capsule of Accutron’s design. The authentic model of this watch is the place the design for his or her Spaceview case, which you’ll be able to see with the horned lugs and the crown down on the 4 o’clock mark.
The case of the Accutron Legacy 412 is stainless-steel, with a gold-tone utilized to it (which feels period-correct, particularly paired with the black band). Those gold tones keep it up to the palms and indices, set in opposition to the silvery white of the dial. I additionally like how the faceted indices appear to choose up among the angles that we see coming at us on these lugs.
Around the again of the Accutron Legacy 412, you’ve bought a partial window into the automated motion inside. Not many particulars on that, aside from it’s Swiss-made and has 26 jewels in it. You may be questioning, why not quartz? Well, with this hailing to a design that got here from 1969, that predates the quartz disaster ever so barely. It does make for barely chunkier proportions (once you evaluate the peak to the diameter), however it’s what it’s.
The Accutron Legacy 412 is accessible now, in a restricted run of 600 items (every is numbered; this restrict is widespread to the Legacy collection). While it’s asking value of $1,450 feels a bit wealthy for me, that appears to be the place the Accutron line – as an entire – is focusing on itself, cashing in on nostalgia whereas seeking to re-establish itself within the luxurious watch vary.
