Watches, well most quartz anyway, are programmed to alert it's wearer to the fact that the battery in the watch is growing weak and needs to be replaced. There are watches that use a 2 second split and then there are those, like my Bucherer quartz that hops at 5 second intervals. Remember, just because you put a "new in the package" battery in your watch does not guarantee that it is new by way of battery power. Some batteries go completely dead while sitting on shelves waiting to be sold. For those of you that don't know, take it from a man of experience, never... ever... ever... store loose change and opened, new or used, coin or watch batteries in the same junk drawer. They will combine chemically to cook off the battery cells like a .22 rounds and pieces can fly pretty fast. Have a great day!

Get it dried out as soon as possible as rust starts in as little as 48 hours. Then find out why it leaked. You will need a watchmaker

I could not find your watch on their web site, perhaps it is discontinued?

You may find a watch that is similar to yours however.

If you go to "Boluva.com", you will find a menu at the top of the screen. Click on "service centre" and you will see a list o watch types; click on "boluva" and you will arrive at a list of instructions.

A search of these might help.

Otherwise try their repair service, who might be able to help you.

I have seen these watches sold on ebay, just make sure it is the genuine made by Bulova.

If he has to send it back to the factory it means that one of the cogs has failed - Bulova delivers major replacement parts only to their repair shops so an independent repairman can't fix it.
So yes, it appears that it was a correct diagnostic - otherwise it would have fix it himself. And the price is about right , $150m is the price just for the inspection and basic labor, the rest is extra - it depends on what else is damaged: a single ruby will cost you around $200.
The alarm section can't be connected to your present problem, it's been inactive for too long to pose a problem to the main mechanism.
