    How much would you pay for a broken Bulova Accutron 1960’s

    Hi everyone , I saw this Accutron. The guy says that the minute hand and hour hand is not working. I know enough to know that it’s a worn canon pinion and can be fixed quite easily by a serviceman.

    I have been doing a lot of research but on this particular on this Swiss Chapter Ring Accutron. I have not been able to find what they have sold for. There were lots of results on websites like Accutron 214 and Electric Watches about the chapter ring Spaceview but not this model and the guy who is selling doesn’t know what the model is .

    Unless it’s a conversion , does anyone know what model it is ?

    He’s put it up for 275 but it’s going to cost at least 110 to fix so if anyone had any idea of what the end value would be so that I don’t pay more to get it and repaired that is actually worty ?

    I would put up more pics but this the only one he has

    Cheers

    "pay", I would need a bribe to take it.

    A risk not worth taking.

    Way too expensive for any broken watch.

    With the information you have provided, and with the information we don't yet know, I would pass on this one, and quickly.

    I bought an Accutron with a gouged crystal and movement unknown for $40 and that gamble paid off after a new crystal and service. Was about $200 all finished.

    That seller's going to be asking $275 for a long time.

    Hard pass for me. Tell him to get the watch fixed and then you'll buy it. Alternatively, you could roll the dice and offer $50 and then take it to a watchmaker to see what's.
