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

Spaceview Repair Form
Our Accutron Spaceview Repair Process:
A Mail In Accutron Repair 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 Repair 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.
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 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. (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 for Your Accutron Spaceview Repair|
over any hobby repairer.
Since Bulova called Old Father Time|
to purchase their remaining Vintage Accutron Spaceview Repair parts inventory, it 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.
bulova accutron repair watchmakers
will typically scour the internet hawking their need for old, used components to install in YOUR watch.
Every week we receive Accutrons (Spaceviews in particular), for re- repair that a hobbyist has ruined. Usually the Spaceview owner is so upset that they refuse to contact the hobbyists again to remedy the problems.
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 reluctant to offer to repair them.
However, it's difficult not to 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're The ONLY
Professional Watchmakers Specializing in Accutron Repair
We offer many types of Accutron Spaceview Case repair 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 repair components not available anywhere else. It's important that your Accutron watch be repaired 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". Luckily coils are needed in only a small percentage of the Accutron repairs we perform.

Packing & Shipping Your Spaceview 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 recommend using USPS Registered, Insured Mail for shipping timepieces to us. We do not recommend using UPS or FedEx Ground carrier services.
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.

Our $65 Estimate Fee on Vintage Accutron Repair includes partial disassembly to properly diagnose needed repairs, detailed written estimate by email, and return shipping with insurance and tracking if repair is declined. If recommended repairs are performed, (after receiving your approval) the Estimate is FREE. If the estimate fee was paid by check, it's simply used as a deposit toward repairs.
Repair Turnaround Time
Please allow adequate turnaround time. As the largest Accutron Repair studio in the U.S., turnaround time can vary depending on the number of repairs in our studio at any given point. It will also vary depending on specific services being performed. For instance, certain cosmetic restorations require a bit more time. Our schedule changes seasonally also. Our studio is normally closed 2 weeks in July and also the month of December.
Our current turnaround time is 5-8 weeks. Your patience is always appreciated.
