    Was just gifted a Bulova Accutron Railroad Approved.....

    My father-in-law just handed this to me. Belonged to his father-in-law before he passed away. The serial number indicates it was manufactured in 1969. Iím pretty excited about researching it and getting it in working order. Just thought Iíd share. Can anyone recommend a good place to have it restored? Thanks in advance!

    Just wipe off the peanut butter and you should be good to go.

    These are great watches, and what a great family piece to now own. Sadly I can't recommend anyone - not being from your neck of the woods.

    This should have a 214 in it. I have a seen a couple places online that service these. Could be a little costly depending on the condition of the movement. A nice watch to get going tho'.

    Wiped the peanut butter off, haha. Iíve started cleaning it up carefully and will update the thread as the project progresses. Thereís no battery in it so I donít know if itís otherwise running or not.

    There are a couple of different battery options but you should know that the battery uses a plastic spacer around it and is installed positive (shiny printed flat) side down.
