Bulova Accutron Repair
and Restoration is our SPECIALTY including Accutron case repair, re-plating services and dial or chapter ring restoration.  We receive approximately 1,000 vintage Accutron 214,  218 and 2242 (AccuQuartz), model watches each year.  Bulova has been recommending Old Father Time for their vintage Accutron repair since 1995.  And when the owner of the Bulova Corporation needed his personal vintage watch repaired, it was sent to Old Father Time.  That's why we've been
"The AUTHORITY ON ACCUTRON Repair" since 1995. 

Vintage Bulova Accutron watch repair
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.

Because of our relationship with Bulova, we've purchased their remaining stock of all vintage 214 & 218 Accutron repair parts.

Our Accutron 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.

We're now receiving so many of these hobbyist "jobs" that, depending on the severity, 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 OEM parts and claims of being an "expert" in repairing Accutron watches, and all at cheap, cheap prices.  Right....

We offer many types of case Accutron repair and re-plating services along with authentic Accutron Spaceview crystals during repair. 
We use only factory-correct, new/old stock Accutron components or newly manufactured factory Accutron parts (such as crystals), from Bulova.  As a Bulova Accutron Dealer and service provider we're able to offer many authentic Accutron repair components not available anywhere else.  Bulova allowed OFT to purchase thousands of vintage Accutron repair parts.  It's important that your Accutron watch be repaired by a competent, professional watchmaker, with the correct parts, tools, equipment & training. 

Unfortunately, coils are in very short supply.  For that reason, we install them only in watches receiving a "Full Restoration".  Luckily coils are needed in only a small fraction of the Accutron repairs we receive.

Packing & Shipping Your Accutron for Repair

Pack your watch in a box that's approximately 8" X 4" X 4" 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 don't recommend GROUND Services for shipping timepieces to us.   Please use USPS Registered, Insured Mail.  It's a little slower, but much safer.  It's required to be under lock and key, and signed for every time it's moved from one locked container to another .

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. 

If you have no email account, your contact information can be sent along with the watch and we'll mail information to you by USPS.  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 watch only in
