Who here knows what about Bulova's Accutron line of watches from say, the 1960's?
I've got my dad's watch, which has not worked for some many years... he took it to the "jeweler" at JC Penny and they returned it to him in worse shape than he brought it to them. I don't think he ever tried to fix it again.
I found THIS guy online, and the website says he bought ALL the old Bulova parts from the Accutron line, and shows a lot of restoration pictures... but none of the models are like this one.
I sent him an email, we'll see what he has to say. But while we're waiting for that, let's poke the BadWeB braintrust to see what spills out.
Matthew,I've been dealing with Womble Watch for 30 years,they have never failed to do good work and I would trust them with anything.I've thought about having them restore the Longines my dad bought while he was in the Navy in the early 50's but haven't had the money.
Pwnzor, thanks for this post, it shook loose an old memory. My Grandfather gave me a Bulova watch for my grade school graduation in 1964. I cracked up family members at the time when I remarked (innocently) this must be pretty good because it's a Bull of a watch. I still have it somewhere, I will have to go on a search, having relocated umpteen times it is buried in a moving box someplace.
