Request for a watchmaker that can repair Vintage Bulova Accutrons
Hi all, I am really searching for a person to repair my Bulova Accutron Astronaut MarkII.
I have had little success in BC, so now will go out of province, and to the US if necessary.
Thanks for any info,

Try contacting IHC Member Chris Abell I know he has in the past worked on Accutrons.

Either he can take it on or refer you to someone reliable who can.

Good luck with it, I hope Chris can help. Yours is the only other one I’ve seen. This one survived as new because it is missing the luminous dot at 4.

Came across this site in my ramblings. No clue who they are or if they're any good, but they're out there.

At the time I found this site, I was looking for someone to clean my 214, as it started keeping AWFUL time, even though I had replaced the battery. I decided to just try putting in ANOTHER new battery, and danged if it didn't fire up and has been keeping perfect time ever since. That was over 6 months ago. Smile

Regards! Mark

Mark.. Good that you have the 214 working again. They are a neat watch. I discovered there are more Accutron repairmen out there than we realize. Maybe no storefronts, but good recommendations and don't cost an arm an a leg.

Yeah, checked it just this morning and it's still keeping perfect time. When in doubt, check the battery. Roll Eyes

Bill the Accutron you have for repair has a different circuit board then the 218. Does the watch hum when you put a new battery in it?
