    Bulova Repair Person/Watchmaker in NYC?

    Greetings -

    I'm wondering if anyone might be able to recommend a good watchmaker in NYC to do some repairs on a 1968 vintage Bulova Snorkel/666.
    Without paying attention (when I had less experience buying vintage watches) I purchased an example with the wrong hands and Bulova logo.
    i think i've found a parts/repair watch - a mid-60s 34mm Bulova Aerojet that seems to have same 28mm dial as the snorkel with same/similar
    pointed/dauphine hands and logo -- so I'm hoping that someone can swap these out. It may not look great but still think it would be an improvement
    over what I have now (otherwise case, dial, and bezel of my snorkel look good and i love size and shape on the wrist.

    So I am looking for suggestions of someplace in NYC where I might go for these Bulova repairs.

    I'm new to all this so any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Check out John Zangler Expert Watch Repair in Queens. He is a great guy and very reasonable.

    Try Grand Jewelers in Astoria, Queens. He's serviced/repaired several of the vintage mechanical watches that I inherited from my parents.

    The following is an abbreviated version of the original article when I first read of Marcel. The original article mentioned that he was trained by Bulova when they were on Astoria Boulevard, before the building was sold. (He also daily wears a vintage Bulova Accutron.)

    This is great! Thank you so much for this Bulova speciaist suggestion. Really nice to have recommendations of NYC watchmakers generally, especially after a recent bad experience with one in midtown.

    Not sure if you're still looking for a repair center, but my company was actually approached by Bulova to do service for them since their repair center is closing due to their lease expiring.
