CUSTOM Accutron watch restoration has been our specialty since 1993 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 the manufacturer for repair of all their vintage Accutron 214,  218 Series and 224 Series (AccuQuartz),watches.  We've even been contracted by Bulova to repair the personal vintage watches of their CEO!!    That's why since 1993 we've been known as

Vintage Accutron watch 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 'hobby competitors'.   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.

  Old Father Time is dedicated to excellence in the horological craft.  To learn more about what to look for in a Professional Watchmaking Facility, see

Packing & Shipping Suggestions

Pack your watch in a box that's approximately 8" X 10" X 4" in size, or a size that can't easily be lost by the carrier.  We suggest wrapping your Accutron in bubble-wrap  and then packing in styrofoam peanuts or void air bags.  We recommend the use of USPS Registered, Insured Mail.  This method is a little slower, but much safer.  Your package is signed off on every time it moves from one locked container to another within the Postal System.  Retain your tracking number to track its travels and know exactly when we receive your Accutron.

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.
