At BaselWorld 2010, Bulova re-introduces the Accutron Spaceview because of its 50th anniversary. Although Bulova Accutron is nowadays a brand name for quartz operated watches, for this occasion they installed the original electronic 360hz Accutron movement. These hand made replicas will be limited to 1000 pieces and come with an incredibly nice looking wooden box and glass display case. It seems that even Bulova knows that tuning fork watches are bound to break and are only suitable for putting them on display. With a steep retail price of $4000 USD and given the fact that 1000 pieces will be sold quite quickly to collectors and Accutron aficionados, you might get an original Accutron Spaceview 214 on eBay for much less. These will break just as hard and need some conversion work to get them running with the current voltage batteries, but at least it is the original and it is a cheaper investment for a display watch.

The new Accutron Spaceview however, is really a stunning looking watch and has been a bit upgraded to current standards with respect to diameter and size.
