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 recommend 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. We also don't recommend Priority Mail for ANY watch shipments. Any website advertising Priority Mail as their shipping method, has never tried to file a claim with the US Postal Service for lost items!
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. Because of the volume of repairs in the shop, we're not able to send repeated reminders.
Please send your watch only in
Please allow adequate turn-around time.
Accutron repair, accutron repair and restoration, accutron repair services: accutron repair 214 and accutron repair specialists for over 20 years
Bulova Accutron Repair and Restoration is our SPECIALTY including re-plating services and dial or chapter ring restoration. We receive approximately 1,000 vintage Accutron 214, 218 and 2242 (AccuQuartz), model watches each year. Bulova has been recommending Old Father Time for their Accutron repair since 1995. And when the owner of the Bulova Corporation needed his personal vintage watch repaired, it was sent to Old Father Time. That's why we've been
"The AUTHORITY ON ACCUTRON Repair" since 1995.
Because of our unique relationship with Bulova, we've recently been allowed to purchase their remaining stock of all Accutron parts.
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 Master Watchmakers and trainers. Our watchmakers attend continuing education classes either at AWCI or WOSTEP.
Unlike many repairers, we charge
No Additional FEES
for restoration of individual 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.
