214,  218 and 2242 (AccuQuartz), watch repair
CUSTOM Accutron Spaceview watch repair and restoration has been our specialty since 1995 including re-plating services, case repair, and dial or chapter ring restoration.  We receive approximately 1,000 vintage Accutron watches each year and we're recommended by Bulova for repair of all their vintage Accutron 214,  218 and 2242 (AccuQuartz), watches.  We've even been contracted by Bulova to repair the personal vintage watches of their CEO!!    That's why since 1995 we've been known as
"
The AUTHORITY ON ACCUTRON"

Accutron repair is our passion.  Our staff of watchmakers is highly skilled and is either a Certified or Master watchmaking professional.   Our watchmakers attend continuing education classes provided by AWCI or WOSTEP trainers.  This is essential in staying abreast of new technologies and advances in the field.

Our Base Service for vintage Accutron watches includes: Thoroughly Clean and Regulate Vintage Electronic Watch Movement including complete disassembly/re-assembly, proper lubrication of the movement, new gaskets, new battery, labor involved in replacing any worn or damaged parts, polishing all pivots, plates, screws, etc. We'll also ultrasonically clean your case and/or bracelet.

Unlike many internet repairers we charge No Additional FEES for restoration of individual case components such as backs, pushers, crowns, or battery doors and bezels.  Our case restoration service is "all inclusive" and is actually less expensive than our competitor's.   We also offer many types of case repair and re-plating services, authentic Spaceview crystal replacements and all factory-correct new/old stock components or newly manufactured factory parts.  As a Bulova Dealer and service provider for vintage Accutron Repair we're able to offer many authentic components not offered elsewhere.  We purchased Bulova's stock of parts for many vintage tuning fork models.  We professionally handle all types of restoration projects with over 65 (combined) years of experience.

Our Accutron Spaceview Repair Process:

We provide a Mail In Accutron Repair Form for your convenience.  Once your watch arrives it is locked in a secured location with fire and theft monitoring 24 hours/day.  Within 4-5 days following arrival, a skilled Accutron repair watchmaker will diagnose your Accutron and we'll provide a detailed, written evaluation  with instructions of how proceed.  We accept many forms of payment including Personal Check, Credit/Debit Card & E-Check.  Payment is not applied 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 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.

Unlike many repairers, we charge No Additional FEES for restoration of individual Accutron case backs, pushers, crowns, or battery door components & locking rings.  When we quote case restoration, the price is "all inclusive".   If you add the hobbyists' costs for all the various components of an Accutron case, you'd far exceed our cost for case restoration.

Read about reasons to choose Old Father Time
over any other internet repairer here.

 

Bulova called Old Father Time to buy their remaining Vintage Accutron Repair parts inventory.  That gives us quite an advantage when repairing or 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.
 

Hobbyists
will typically scour the internet hawking their need for old, used components to install in "Your" watch.
 
Every week we receive Accutron watches for re-repair that a hobbyist has ruined.  Usually the Accutron owner is so upset they refuse to contact the hobbyist again to try to remedy the problems.  We find all sorts of wrong parts or procedures when we open these watches -- most are not even cleaned. 

We're now receiving so many of these hobbyist scams that our watchmakers are beginning to refuse acceptance of them. But it's very hard not to sympathize with Accutron owners' issues.  They were promised quality Accutron repair with genuine Accutron parts and claims of being an "expert" in repairing Accutron watches, and all at cheap, cheap prices.  Right....

Packing & Shipping Suggestions

Pack your watch in a box that's approximately 10" X 8" X 6" in size or a size that can't easily be lost by the carrier.  We recommend wrapping the item in bubble-wrap and then packing in styrofoam peanuts or void air bags.  We recommend the use of USPS Registered Mail Insured for shipping timepieces to us.    We don't recommend using UPS Please make no reference to the contents on the outside of your package.  Our address label at the bottom of our Accutron Repair Form may be used for US Postal Service only.  Shortly after your package arrives we'll send a detailed repair estimate by email.  We'll then wait for your reply before proceeding.  Because of the number of repairs in the shop, we're not able to send repeated reminders. 

In order to receive your repair estimate by email, you'll need to have Adobe Reader installed on your computer.  This service is free and can be downloaded here

Please send your Accutron Repair items only in
packing that can be discarded
