I inherited a Bulova Accutron from my grandfather. We found it in a chest drawer after he passed away. It was not working at the time and the crystal was cracked.
I've replaced the crystal and had the watch cleaned twice (by Swiss Watch Repair in Chicago.) Both times, the watch worked a short while after the cleanings and then stopped. There is a new battery in the watch. I've been very careful with the watch given it is probable age.
Because there is sentimental value, I would like to have the watch fixed and running. At the same time, I don't want to be in a position where I am constantly going back to the watch repair shop.
The watch is a Bulova Accutron.The markings on the back of the case appear to say DAA287 H7. (The second A could be a 4 and the H7 could be HT or N7/NT; hard to tell for sure.) The case is also stamped with "14K Gold Filled Case" and "waterproof". I have no other information about it. (I will upload pictures, if it helps.)
The watch repair shop listed as a 218 model, but I do not know if that is correct or not.
Any suggestions on whether the watch can be fixed so it runs for more than just a couple of weeks?
