Budget Accutron Service watch repair

Budget Accutron Service

At Budget Accutron - (a division of The Time Preserve) we've been Servicing and Restoring electric and mechanical watches since 1995. Through the years we've developed unique procedures and processes to fix and restore the watches that others have given up on. Our skill goes well beyond the service manuals and instructions supplied by the OEMs. As engineers, we utilize the operational principles of the movement designs to advance the level of service only we can provide.

We understand and respect the emotional and historical value of the watches in your collection. We treat them with the same care and pride that you have as the owner. Our work is warranted 2 years for proper time keeping.

The Time Preserve

The Time Preserve is also the first company to successfully gold-plate the Apple Watch™. Along with our partners at Artisan Plating(Metal Arts Specialties), the Time Preserve is able to properly and accurately plate any Stainless Steel Apple Watch—and match Apple’s color specifications for both yellow and rose gold. No other gold plater can say that.

We also offer something no other gold plater can offer—a two year guarantee on our Apple Watch plating (1 year for bands). It will not peel, blister, chip, discolor, or wear through. Our competitors may be a little cheaper, but there’s a good reason—their plating is only guaranteed for 30 days. Read More  about Apple Watch plating.  We were even covered in Wired Magazine.
