That's crazy... Usually a guy can find an Accutron service for $400 or less depending on.. but no where near that rediculiusness.

I just sent you an email. Henry Encarnacion was the head of the Bulova Service Center in New York City for 25 years. He's the best. PERIOD

I have a 1973 model “CN” with a 218-2 movement. Was purchased in October and claims to have been fully serviced and cleaned. Not sure if it needs a repair / service or not, let me describe the issue:  Normally keeps excellent time, I check it every time I put it on my wrist, or put it down for the night, or store it for a few days. About -0.5s per day face up when not worn, and about +0.5s per day when on wrist. About every 10 to 14 days, it losses about 3 to 5 seconds in a wear or rest period of say 10 hours. Any idea what causes this massive time lag and so sporadically? The watch is not mistreated in any way and always rests on a soft surface when not worn.

John V. at Time & Again (a few posts up) did excellent work on my 1958 Bulova 23 D recently! He is very responsive to messages, his service cost isn't crazy, and has quick turn around time. I will definitely be using his services again if I buy another Bulova needing work done!

I have recently acquired a ‘43 A-11 military watch that sadly has worn lug holes. Is it repairable an if so could anyone recommend someone in Australia to do the work? Failing all else would there be one for sale by one of the members?
