If a meter isn't "accurate" it isn't "working". Mine are from the 50s to the early 80s, all are accurate and reliable. The two I use most are a Weston Master III and a 1960 ish LunaSix.

The OP should get the best meter he can afford. If a used one, get a 30 day return privelege and have it checked against a known accurate meter.
