Spaceview watch repair and restoration has been our specialty since 1995 including
re-plating services, case repair, and dial or chapter ring restoration. We
approximately 1,000 vintage Accutron watches each year and we're recommended by Bulova for
repair of all their vintage Accutron

Accutron repair is our passion.
Our staff of watchmakers is highly skilled and is

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
