CUSTOM Accutron watch repair and restoration has been our specialty since 1995 including re-plating services, case repair, and dial restoration.  We repair and/or restore approximately 1000 vintage Accutron watches each year.  We're recommended by Bulova for repair of all their vintage Accutron 214 and 218 watches.  We've even been contracted by Bulova to repair the personal watches of their CEO!!    That's why since 1995 we've been known as "The AUTHORITY ON ACCUTRON"

Vintage Accutron watch repair is one of our favorites, however, like any professional full-service repair center our shop is equipped for many brands of watch repair.  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.

Please note that coils are in very short supply.  For that reason, we only install them in watches receiving a "Full Restoration".  Luckily coils are needed in only a small fraction of the Accutrons we receive for repair.
