Seen here for the first time ANYWHERE, The ULTRA RARE (you won't ever see these on ebay) Genuine Bulova Factory Accutron 214 24 Hour Gear Set For Standard Hand Set, This is the gear set (part number unknown) that is used in any Bulova Accutron 214 with a 24 hour dial that uses a Standard Hand Set which all the 24 hour dial watches do, The only hand set Bulova ever used on ALL wrist watches, Aerospace clocks, And timer switches using the Bulova Accutron 214 24 hour dials is the Bulova white spade hand set part number WS-25.
REMEMBER YOU SEEN THESE HERE FIRST !!!
Here is the only hand set used on watches utillzing this 24 hour gear set, The Genuine Bulova Factory original Accutron 214 White Spade Hand Set part number WS-25 !
Bulova only made two types of 24 hour dials (flat and dished) for the Accutron 214H movements utillzing this 24 hour gear set with both types seen here !
The first type seen on the left are dished and were used only in Bulova Accutron 214H wrist watches, And the second type seen on the right were flat and only used in Bulova Accutron 214H aerospace panel clocks and timer switches.
Fact - The 24 hour gear set, 24 hour dials, and white spade hand set P/N WS-25 were always used together, And with the exception of the very rare 1962 Astronaut 1st gen wrist watch which used the WS-25 handset for one year, It was all three together or it was nothing so if you see any of the three without the other two it's not factory original !
You can learn more about the "dished" dials use in the Bulova Accutron 214 wrist watches verses the "flat" dials used in the Bulova Timer Labs aerospace panel clocks a timers here...
The flat dials were used by Bulova Timer Labs and the differences between them that prevent them from being interchangeable between the Bulova wrist watches and the Bulova Timer Labs panel clocks and timers are detailed there...
