Is buying a nonrunning vintage accutron worth it?
Hi, I'm a noob to Bulova. I recently purchased a '72 mechanical SeaKing. Online, I've seen some beauties. The crownless accutrons, the asymmetrical cases & the astronaut all intrigue me.
So here is the question. There are several nonrunning accutrons online that I've seen and liked. Some seem a bit much, but others seem reasonably priced compared to the working equivalents. (Some hum, some don't.) Is it worth it to get a non-runner and repair it, or is the repair cost going to be too much for what the watch is worth and what a runner can be had for?
I'd love to hear your opinions.
