    Another Accutron back from service!

    Thanks again to Benchguy for this one also. I bought this 1977 Accutron 2193 from a yard sale for $5. I sent it to my watchmaker Benchguy and found out the movement was fried. Well I bought a serviced donor movement watch because I really liked the case and shiny gold reflective dial on this one. Well benchguy cleaned up the rest of the donor watch and put everything together for me. Got it back today and am very pleased. This also has a nice JB Champion Accutron band.

    Does your guy service 214s, and if so, what is his pricing like?

    I inherited my grandfather-in-laws 214 about 3 years ago. I know he took good care of his watches and had them serviced, but we never found any records. It runs beautifully, but loses time.

    Send me a PM if you don't want to drag this off topic any further.
