Vintage Bulova Accutron Watch Repair - Restoration

We're Vintage Accutron Restoration Specialists.  Our staff of watchmakers is highly skilled and is either a Certified or Master watchmaking professional.  We've received specific Accutron repair training from Bulova's Master Watchmakers and Trainers many years ago.  Our watchmakers attend continuing education classes either at AWCI or WOSTEP every year.

As restoration specialists, we handle full restorations exclusively in an effort to "bring the timepiece as close to the manufacturer's original specifications and standards as humanly possible".

Customer's Reviews and Comments.

Because of our relationship with Bulova, we've purchased their remaining New/Old Stock of all vintage 214, 218 Series & 224 Series Accutron parts.  Within a few days of receiving your Accutron, we'll provide a detailed estimate for repair-restoration.  All estimates are in written form and are sent by either email or postal mail, whichever you request.

See below for the full "OFT Accutron Repair/Restoration Process"

Please note:  Parts are not available for the Accutron 221-Series, Accutron 130 Series (Ladies models)
or the Accutron Quartz 2192-Series Models.

 Our Accutron Restoration Process:

A Mail In Accutron Repair/Restoration Form is provided for your convenience.  It's an online form that can be filled out on your screen, then printed and packaged with your Accutron.   (See "Packaging & Shipping" suggestions below.)  Once your watch arrives, it is locked in a secured location with fire and theft monitoring 24/7/365.  Within 4-5 business days following arrival, a skilled Accutron watchmaker will diagnose your Accutron and we'll provide a detailed, written evaluation with clear instructions on how to proceed.  Estimates are normally sent by email on the Wednesday following arrival of your package.

Repair Calendar
Before Shipping

We accept many forms of payment including Personal Check, Credit/Debit Cards & E-Check.  Payment is not processed until we have a clear shipping date for your Accutron.  At that time, you'll be notified that we expect to ship your Accutron within the next 7-10 days.  We'll notify you again when your Accutron is packaged for shipment, AND provide Tracking information.  We then ship repaired Accutrons by 2nd Day Federal Express with special Jeweler's Insurance for high-value items.  This is the only shipping method we use for repaired/restored Accutrons.  You'll want to read our full Accutron Repair - Restoration Warranty information.

Unlike many repairers, we charge No Additional Fees for restoration of indivudual Accutron Case backs, pushers, crowns, or battery door components & locking rings.  When we quote "case restoration", the price is all-inclusive.

Accutron Repair by Old Father Time

accutron repairSince Bulova called Old Father Time
to purchase their remaining Vintage Accutron parts inventory, it's a crucial advantage when repairing and restoring these great tuning fork timepieces "CORRECTLY".  We're able to use new/old stock parts instead of cannibalizing one 50-year-old Accutron to repair another, (yours).

bulova accutron repair watchmakers
will typically scour the internet searching for old, used components to install in YOUR watch.
Every week we receive Accutrons for re-repair that a hobbyist has ruined.  Usually the Accutron owner is so upset that they refuse to contact the hobbyist again to remedy the problems.  Or they've contacted them enough with no solution, that they've given up.

When we receive these Accutrons, we find all sorts of incorrect or missing parts, wrong procedures in assembly, etc. -- most were never even cleaned.
We're now receiving so many of these "hobbyist" jobs that, depending on the severity of the issues, our watchmakers are declining the repair.
Of course, we do sympathize with the Accutron owner's situation.  After all, they were promised "expert" Accutron repair, with genuine Accutron OEM parts, and claims of "quality" services...  and all for
cheap, cheap prices...

We have many types of Accutron Case restoration and re-plating services along with authentic Accutron Spaceview Crystals in our repairs.  We use only factory-correct, new/old stock Accutron components or newly manufactured factory Accutron parts (as in the case of crystals), from Bulova.  As a Bulova Accutron Authorized Dealer and Service Provider, we're able to offer many authentic Accutron components not available anywhere else.  It's important that your Accutron watch be serviced by a competent, professional watchmaker, with the correct parts, tools, equipment and training.

Unfortunately, coils are now in very short supply.  For that reason, we install them only in watches receiving our "Full Restoration".
