387s Battery for 214 Bulova Accutron Watches
#387-S Battery 1.55 volt Silver Oxide with plastic collar. This is the replacement battery for the original Mercury 1.35 volt battery.
The #387-S battery is for all re-phased Accutron model # 214 watches.
If your watch is 'dirty inside', needs servicing, cleaning or re-phasing, then # 387-S battery may cause your watch to run too "fast", or not at all.
Note: If your Accutron runs FAST or has any of the other problems above - then it probably needs a good cleaning (movement needs to be ultrasonically cleaned) and lubricated.
If your watch has started running FAST, then there is a chance that the Accucell-1 battery (see other listings) will slow it down to run correctly and keep good time. There are no guarantees though...
Will Using The New Replacement Batteries Damage My Vintage Accutron Watch?
Here is a direct quote from BulovaÂ© from their web site, about Accutron # 214 battery problems:
"Silver oxide cells are 1.55 volts, compared to mercury's 1.35 volts. The use of this slightly higher voltage cell will not affect the performance of a correctly adjusted Accutron. If the watch does not operate properly with a 1.55 volt substitute, the fault is either an incorrect adjustment of the movement, or worn parts in the movement. USING A 1.55V (Replacement) CELL WILL NOT CAUSE ANY DAMAGE TO THE MOVEMENT."
However your vintage Accutron watch needs to be in good working condition to use the new 1.55 volt replacement batteries with good success.
If your watch needs to be adjusted, cleaned, or serviced, then the new replacement batteries may cause your watch to run too fast, & or not to keep "good time".
