Folks

I bought a near mint 1965 ACCUTRON 218D. Like most of my collection, it's seldom worn. If it's only worn for a few days each month should the battery be removed??

Thanks for any insight

Kelly

If it were me, I would. A running movement is wearing on the index wheel. I have replaced too many with worn teeth.

Thank you for your reply. Can you recommend the tool to remove the watch back and any other tools I'd need.

I see these watch back removal tools at Amazon but not sure which is optimal http://tinyurl.com/junpqyb

Many thanks!

Doesn't mark the case but this only for Bulova Accutron
