Vintage Bulova Accutron Astronaut Watch Repair

Our 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 Astronaut, 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.

 Our Accutron Astronaut Repair Process:

A Mail In 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 Astronaut.   (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 Astronaut Repair over any hobby repairer

Since Bulova called Old Father Time
to purchase their remaining Vintage Accutron & Astronaut 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 for re- repair that a hobbyist has ruined.  Usually the Accutron 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...

Genuine Bulova Accutron NEW/OLD Stock Parts Supply

Accutron Repair Form

We offer many types of Accutron 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 Astronaut 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 Astronaut 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 Accutron for Repair

Pack your Astronaut 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 Astronaut 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. 

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

Estimate Fee

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.

Bulova Accutron Astronaut Repair and Restoration
By Certified Watchmaking Professionals

The following may sound like gibberish, but it's designed primarily for search engines.  It's all true, of course, but you'll recognize the word density.  Apologies. Accutron repair is our specialty.  We've been repairing Bulova Accutron Astronaut
 watches for about 25 years.  In a typical week we handle bulova accutron astronaut repairs, bulova accutron spaceview repairs, bulova 214 accutron repairs, bulova accutron 218 repairs, Accutron Accuquartz repairs, Accutron 2242 repair, Mark IV Accutron repair, Accutron Mark II Repairs, Accutron Spaceview repairs or general accutron watch repair.  Accutrons of every style and variation are repaired and restored to their original beauty in our studio every day.

Bulova has trusted Old Father Time with vintage Accutron 214 and 218 repair and restoration for 25 years.  Bulova contacted us when they decided to sell all their vintage accutron repair parts and accutron repair materials/Accutron Astronaut
 repair equipment and Accutron Astronaut
 repair tools.  For that reason they continue to refer Accutron Astronaut
 repair customers to OFT every day.  They know that we have the new/old stock parts to correctly repair vintage Accutron Astronauts
s.  Please review our accutron repair
Reviews Page from customers who are enjoying their Bulova Accutron Astronaut
 Tuning Fork watch again because of Old Father Time repair service. 

We receive many Accutron Astronaut
 watches in our studio for repair every week that have been mishandled by ists.  Accutron Astronaut
 repair is a delicate process requiring specialized knowledge, skills and equipment.  Most often, hobbyists don't possess any of them.  We are AWCI Trained Watchmakers.  We've also been trained by Bulova Accutron Astronaut
 Repair Trainers and Master Watchmakers many years ago. We do not employ hobbyists.  We do not send your Accutron Astronaut
 out to be repaired by someone else.   We do not scrounge the internet looking for worn out parts from another Accutron Astronaut
 to repair your Accutron Astronaut
.  That doesn't make good common sense.  It's a measure of desperation that hobbyists have to resort to.

If you would like us to contact you about your Accutron Astronaut
 repair, Accutron Spaceview Repair, or Astronaut Accutron Repair, Accutron 214 Repair, Accutron Mark II Repair, Accutron Mark IV Repair, Accutron Railroad Repair, Accutron Snorkel Repair, Accutron World Time repair, Accutron Pulsation Repair, Tiffany & Co Accutron Repair, Accutron 218 Repair, Accutron 218D Repair, Accutron 2180 Repair, Accutron 2181 Repair, Accutron 2182 Repair, Accutron 2185 Repair, Accutron Deep Sea 666 Repair, Accutron 2242 Repair, your retirement Accutron Repair, your high school graduation Accutron Repair, Engagement Accutron Repair, Custom made Accutron Repair, Accutron Accuquartz Repair, or a custom Accutron Build "just for you", call us at 252-371-1656, or email us at
