    The 214 Accutron has been obsolete for a number of years.

    Parts are no longer available from Bulova.

    If you need a coil assy. or an index wheel you will have to find someone that has some NOS or used parts.

    Google 214 Accutron parts.

    Some years ago I saw an advertisement where an individual specialized in Accutron repairs. Dont know how good he is.

    Ill do some research and see if I can find out whos who.



    Regards....Gerald

    Nice Space View.

    They are the most desirable, especially with a yellow case.

    Don't send your watch to Bulova, they will remove the accutron movement and put in a quartz movement. Moreover the batteries that ran those watches are no longer made. I don't remember the exact voltage but they were for example 3.6 volt and our epa saw to it that those mercury batteries were eliminated. the "replacement" is 3.2 volt and after several months i accepted the fact the watch will not keep accurate time no matter what. Runs slow because of too low of voltage. I can give you an expert watchmaker that will fix your accutron but it will not keep accurate time. If you want the info pm me or send an email.
