How do I set the time on my Bulova Accutron Spaceview?
tuning fork watchSpaceview Repair and Restoration is a specialty at OFT. With over 65 (combined) years of experience, we've handled thousands of Spaceview repairs!  That's why we've been "The AUTHORITY ON ACCUTRON" since 1995.

 

Our Accutron Spaceview Repair services include thoroughly cleaning and regulating vintage electronic tuning fork movements with complete disassembly/re-assembly, proper lubrication of the movement with state-of-the-art materials, new OEM gaskets, new battery, polishing all pivots, plates, and screws, etc.  This base service also includes labor involved in replacing any worn or damaged parts at no additional charge since the movement is already completely disassembled.  We'll also ultrasonically clean your case and/or bracelet.

We charge No Additional FEES for restoration of individual case backs, pushers, crowns or battery door components.  When case restoration is recommended, this service is "all inclusive".   We also offer many types of case repair and re-plating services, and authentic Spaceview crystal replacements and all factory-correct new/old stock components, or newly manufactured factory parts.  As a Bulova authorized service provider and authorized Bulova Dealer for vintage Accutron Repair, we're able to offer many authentic components not offered elsewhere.  We professionally handle all types of restoration projects, with over 65 (combined) years of experience.

Old Father Time is recommended by Bulova for repair of their vintage watches including the famous Accutron Spaceview repair, Astronaut and all their tuning fork models.  We have a full staff of watchmakers as well as a jeweler.  Each is a highly skilled and Certified or Master watchmaking professional.   All have received specific Accutron repair training from Bulova Corporation's Accutron watchmaking repair instructor.  In addition, each of our watchmakers attend continuing education classes either at AWCI or WOSTEP in Switzerland.  This is essential in staying abreast of new technologies and advances in the field.

Old Father Time is a full-time, brick and mortar watch repair center, trained by both Bulova Watchmaking Instructors and WOSTEP Certified Instructors.  To learn more about what to look for in a professional Watch Repair Center click this link: Accutron Spaceview Repair Security Info.

Accutron Spaceview
Packing & Shipping

Pack your Spaceview in a box that's about 10" X 7" X 4" in size, (a bit smaller than a shoe box), or a size not easily lost by the carrier.  We recommend wrapping the item in bubble-wrap, and then packing in styrofoam peanuts or void air bags.

USPS Registered Mail, Insured is a very safe method of shipment. 
*Make no reference to the contents on the outside of the package.  Our address label, at the bottom of the Spaceview Repair Form, may be used for USPS Mail only. 
Within 1 - 2 business days of receipt, we'll notify you with a detailed, written estimate of repair.  We'll then wait for your approval before proceeding.  Because of the volume 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

Accutron Spaceview
Repair Estimates

Our $65 Estimate Fee includes a detailed, WRITTEN evaluation of needed repairs, and return shipping and insurance by Federal Express (not Priority Mail).  If, after obtaining your approval, we perform the repairs we've recommended, the

As the largest Accutron repair center in the U.S., turnaround time can vary depending on a number of factors including complexity, parts availability, and the number of repairs currently in progress.  Our current turnaround time is 3 - 5 weeks.  Your patience is always appreciated!

Accutron Spaceview Repair Warranty

Unless otherwise stated, Old Father Time offers a 6-Month warranty on our  *Vintage watch repairs.  Warranty commences on the date of original completed repair. Warranty items must be received in the shop prior to the end of the warranty period in order to be honored.

While perfection is always our goal, no warranties are, or can be, made regarding achieving the accuracy standards of timekeeping asserted by the original manufacturers when these watches were NEW. Timekeeping is adjusted as originally prescribed by the manufacturer at the time of return shipment to the customer, and has been found to be consistently accurate** for at least 7 days prior to shipment.  However, it is mutually understood that these watches are now antiques.  Adjustments to timekeeping ARE SOMETIMES necessary after any repair or overhaul and while the watch adjusts to the owner's normal use.  We've found that adjustments can also be required after  "rough shipping".  New problems can also arise after the initial repair is performed.   We will, therefore, make timekeeping adjustments throughout the warranty period as needed, however, our warranty does not apply to wear and tear, abuse, misuse, ***incorrect application, or tampering (removing the case-back), and excludes parts, batteries, case, strap or bracelet, crystals, electronic coils and return shipping costs.  Partial repairs are not covered by warranty.

Return shipping is not provided for warranty repair of vintage timepieces.

*     Tuning Fork models produced between 1960 and 1977
**
    Vintage tuning fork accuracy is measured over an extended period of time.  A variance of + or - 4 minutes per month is acceptable for antique tuning fork movements.

***  Incorrect application may include, but is not limited to, water, moisture or condensation.  These watches ARE NOT WATERPROOF (and never were).  Swimming, showering, rain, heavy perspiration, high humidity climates and other introductions of water
cannot be covered by warranty.  If condensation is observed, please remove the battery door (214) or pull the crown (218) and allow the movement to dry completely.  Then package the watch and return it to us for inspection.
