Can anyone suggest a repair service for my Accutron Spaceview II Kinetic.  First remake of the most famous Bulova Accutron 214 Spaceview. This model follows the same avantgarde style of the first model made in the 60`s, even matching the green color of the circuit board and back setting ring. Produced by first originator of the kinetic movements in Switzerland - Jean d`Eve


hard-to-find press down crystal

Hi Everyone:

I have a 1941 Watertight I recently purchased on eBay and brought back to life, identical to this one with the 10AX movement:  Bulova Models |

Does anyone happen to know the crystal it takes?.  It is one of those with the bezel ring that presses down around the crystal.

I recently acquired a similar crystal for another Bulova, but it was 28.3mm and was the 1112 E-1 crystal.  This one is a few mm smaller.

Hello all. New to the group. I have a 1930 Sylvette (my wife's) with a 6AP movement. It needs a new hair spring, but I can't find one anywhere. Is there a compatible one out there? I heard Breguet may be a possibility, but can't find any info. Any help would be appreciated!

Hello Everyone.  I am so happy to have found this forum. 

I have been a hobbyist watchmaker for some time, and want to learn more about repairing Accutrons. 

I know some, but perhaps enough to be dangerous.  I picked up a 1963 214 Accutron (401 variant), installed a new battery, and it is totally dead.
