Old Father Time, LLC
We professionally handle all types of watch repair and restoration, with over 65 (combined) years of experience!    Custom parts fabrication is available in our state-of-the-art horological studio.  Custom watch repair and restoration, re-plating, and dial restoration services are also available.

We have a full staff of watchmakers and jewelers. Each is a highly skilled and certified professional.  Our watchmakers must attend continuing education classes either at AWCI or WOSTEP in Switzerland every year. This is essential in staying abreast of new technologies and advances in the field.  We utilize state-of-the-art testing and analysis equipment as required by every major Swiss watchmaking house.

Old Father Time is a full-time, brick and mortar establishment.  We are required to adhere to the very stringent requirements in safeguarding our customer's assets while in our possession.   Click HERE to learn more about what to look for in a professional watch repair facility.

 

Packing & Shipping Suggestions
Pack your watch in a box that's approximately 10" X 8" X 6" in size, or a size that can't easily be lost by the carrier.  We suggest wrapping the item in bubble-wrap, and then packing in styrofoam peanuts or void air bags.  We recommend the use of USPS Registered Mail, Insured for shipping timepieces to us.    We don't recommend using UPS.  Click HERE to see why.   Please make no reference to the contents on the outside of your package.  Our address label, at the bottom of our Mail In Repair Form, may be used for US Postal Service.  Shortly after your package arrives, we'll send a detailed written repair estimate by email.  We'll then wait for your reply 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

Package carefully, but Use only packing that can be discarded.  Because of the volume of repairs that come into the shop each week, we cannot be responsible for personal or manufacturer's boxes.  All packaging is discarded.  

 


Estimate Fee for *Vintage Accutron Repairs
Our Our Estimate Fee includes a watchmaker's diagnosis of needed repairs, detailed written estimate, and return shipping and insurance by Federal Express if repairs are declined.  If, after obtaining your approval, we perform the repair we've recommended, the estimate is FREE. 

Vintage watch repair is much more time consuming than modern repair.  Parts are more difficult to obtain and often we must research many different companies in search of the precise components needed.  As the largest facility in the world for the repair of vintage Accutrons, turnaround time can vary depending on the number of repairs in the shop at any given point.  Our average vintage turnaround time is 3 - 6 weeks; Your patience is always appreciated.

Vintage Accutron 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.
