My grandfather gave me his Bulova Accutron “SpaceView” watch about a year ago. It's a great watch with a neat bit of history. Here's a photo:
I left it with Rick McElvaine, owner of Maxon's Diamond Merchants here in Springfield last January with a plea for help: find someone who could fix it. Rick spent 8 months investigating the watch and finding someone withe right parts and creditials that could fix it. The end result you see above, a beautiful watch restored to perfect running order. The main coil, index wheel and crystal were replaced and I added the leather band, allowing me to wear it daily.
My grandfather received the watch as a Father's Day gift from his wife in 1966 and was worn daily until it sadly stopped working. Parts had become non-existent and the original lead-acid batteries were nowhere to be found.
Bob, thanks for the opportunity to carry this watch into the future. It's a delight to wear and a reminder of good times and the love of my grandparents.
