My Bulova wristwatch has had two batteries replaced in the last month and a half. The last one was installed this past Saturday- two days ago. The watch is no longer running.

Hi Maureen, The first thing i would have checked is the battery strap if there is one to make sure it is properly fitted over the battery. Other than that as long as the batteries were from a reputable jeweler, it seem as if you watch may need a movement cleaning and or repair it could possibly be the coil. Most of our watch cleanings run around $80.00 but we do all repairs by estimate. Thank you! Lisa

I am trying to find out about a watch given to my grandfather upon his retirement. It is a Bulova Accurtron 214 and has a model number 21276. Does it have a name? What was the original strap/bracelet?...

The name for your keepsake is accutron. The tuning fork represents the two coils. Having said that unfortunately if it no longer works their is little you can do. They have been out of production for some time now. But you can replace the entire movement, eBay will be the best place to start for a reasonable price. Your local jeweler will soak you. The most common battery replacement is a renata 394 although i cant be sure unless I see the movement.

Tighten watch

On this type of watch, you would normally remove sections of the bracelet to tighten it although there is sometimes scope for small adjustment in the clasp itself. This is a fiddly job, and my best advice to you would be to take the watch to your local watch repair/watchmakers/jewellers shop and get them to do it for you - it shouldn't cost you much and hopefully they'd do a professional job.

Somehow i think i chipped the face of my watch, and small chips on the inside are stopping my hands from moving. how do i get the face off?

mcdevito75 here, To get to the face of your watch is a job, you"d need a few jewelers tools and would have to be a bit handy with watches as there is a certain way to move your hands around the watches movement a wrong move of your hands in the watches movement can destroy it. First you"d have to remove the watches back cover, then you"d have to remove the stem (winder) and there"s a certain method to that with requires jewelers screwdrivers, then you"d have to lift the movement out of the case and if these chips loosed the hands you"d need another tool to re-seat them. BEST BET, Check with the repair service directory here at fixya, click on repair service directory bottom of this page, then click on watches, I am Mike D at RITE TIME BASICS and may be able to help or check with any fine watch repaire in the directory.

I have a 1966 Bulova and I am trying to find the value of it. Using the serial number to even find this watch on any Bulova website is not working. The serial no. I use says its not found. Why? This Bulova...

mcdevito75 here, Best Bet, visit a small watch repair shop in your area, But I;ll tell you I have a little experience with older watches, fact is I just finished basic work on a frieds 30 Jewel 65 Bulova and couldN;t find anything online except at various Antique sites that I didn:t write down, your 30 jewel Bulova along with the one I fixed for a friend of mine is worth at least what it cost when brand new----over $100.00

Need bezel with lugs

You could always ask the maker (go to and get the address of your nearest service center).

It seems s unlikely that they will be able to help with such an old watch but you never know your luck. I'm sure that they will be pleased to hear that your watch is still working after such a long time!

How does the swiss eta g10.211 quartz chronograph work

I am not sure if I understand your question. Are you asking how this particular quartz movement operates?

All Quartz movements are pretty much the same operational wise. They can vary greatly in materials used for construction and number of jewels.

At it's basic a quartz watch uses a piece of quartz crystal called a transistor oscillator to vibrate a tuning fork. This vibration is a is brought down by micro processors to a meaningful number then converted into mechanical energy trough the movement and hands.

In the case of a chronograph it means more internal gears and jewels.
Although this is a good movement it is the low side of middle of the road.

The G10.211 is an analog display of hours and measured time. These include hours, minutes and a small jumping second as 6 o'clock. Mechanical date and counters for 1/10 second, 60 seconds and 30 minutes with "ADD" and 'SPLIT" functions. Operated by 2 push buttons.
It has 6 jewels.

If you want to know something more specific please just ask.
Hope this helps.
