This is my first post…until now I’ve just been lurking. Please excuse me and point me in the right direction if this is the wrong forum. I really enjoy watches…although I don’t have too many. But lurking here has gotten me all excited…so much so that I’ve pulled my old Accutron (tuning fork model) out of the sock drawer. It dates to the late 1960’s…a high school graduation gift. (Man, I'm getting old!)
Anyway, it doesn’t run…and hasn’t in years. The last time I searched for someone locally to repair this watch, I was told by most folks, "It probably needs parts, and I have no parts."
Now I notice lots of folks on the web offering Accutron repair services. However, without a recommendation, I'm hesitant to send my watch off to an unknown party. I’m also concerned that the cost of repair may well exceed the value of this watch. I’m wondering if anyone here can direct me. Perhaps someone would be willing to share your Accutron repair experience and maybe a name of someone I could contact?
Thanks for any help!
