Accutron Repair & Sales Policies
Vintage Accutron Repair
Return shipping is not provided with warranty repair of vintage watches.
Shortly after your watch arrives, we'll contact you by email or other method you
indicate, with a detailed evaluation of the needed repairs. We'll then
wait to hear from you before proceeding. If, after several reminders, we still haven't received your
reply, your watch will be stored awaiting contact or disposed of.
* 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. Vintage Accutron 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. SEE BELOW for more information about water resistance and vintage watches.
Water Proof ?
Note: If someone on the internet indicates that they'll make a vintage Accutron watch waterproof for you, be cautious. Much has been documented on the subject over the years with false or misleading claims, and the term can no longer be used on watches made in the US. Bulova stopped referring to water at all on their watches because of numerous water related problems.

It is mutually understood that these watches are purchased and sold as antiques. Warranty is void if we determine occurrences of tampering. This warranty does not apply to normal wear and tear, or abuse, and excludes batteries, case, strap or bracelet, crystals, electronic coils and return postage.
