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 vintage 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.
Vintage Bulova Accutron 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.
Bulova called Old Father Time to buy their remaining
Vintage Accutron Repair parts inventory. That 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.
will typically scour the internet hawking their need for old, used components to install in "Your" watch.
Every week we receive Accutron watches for "re-repair" that a hobbyist has ruined. Usually the Accutron owner is so upset they refuse to contact the hobbyist again to try to remedy the problems. We find all sorts of wrong parts or procedures when we open these watches -- most are not even cleaned.
We're now receiving so many of these hobbyist "jobs" that, depending on the severity, our watchmakers are beginning to refuse acceptance of them. But it's very hard not to sympathize with Accutron owners' issues. They were promised quality Accutron repair with genuine Accutron OEM parts and claims of being an "expert" in repairing Accutron watches, and all at cheap, cheap prices. Right....
Unfortunately, coils are in very short supply. For that reason, we install them only in watches receiving a "Full Restoration". Luckily coils are needed in only a small fraction of the Accutron repairs we receive.
