Hi, long-time lurker, first-time poster -- could someone point me in the direction of a good watch repair shop in Boston?  There are plenty of places that can change a battery or remove a link, but know nothing about mechanical watches. Of the places that DO know mechanicals, some will charge you $350 to do a cleaning, if they think they can get away with it.  Just someone reputable and fair, that's all I'm looking for (I cannot afford to go back to the $350 guy!).  I have a '39 Bulova Calhoun, which had been running beautifully until yesterday, but suddenly is losing 10 minutes a day.  I promise I do not shower, sleep, or do yardwork with it on!  Thanks in advance for your help!

My father just passed down his first major watch purchase to me.  It is an Accutron Astronaut and he purchased it at the Cholon PX in Saigon back in 1966.  He sent it back to Bulova for a complete overhaul in the late 80's.  He did mention that they kept it for almost a year and when it came back the hands were different.  I would greatly appreciate any recommendations for a trusted watchmaker to give the watch a good cleaning and perform any needed adjustments or repairs.  I’m in Alabama, but I’m willing to ship the watch within the CONUS.

Thank you in advance,

Fred
