Battery Installation Timing Your Accutron
Subject to the exclusions below, all 214's serviced by "The Accutron Place" that have not been fully restored, are guaranteed for a period of one year from the printed date of return on your invoice. If your 214 stops running with a good battery installed, or if it fails to keep time within +/- 4 minutes per month during the guarantee period, I will repair and/or adjust it at no charge for covered parts or labor.
If your 214 is returned for a covered repair or adjustment within 30 days of the printed date of return on your invoice, your reasonable shipping cost will be reimbursed and there will be no charge for return shipping.
Shipping costs for returned 214's that are found to be working properly and are keeping time within the guaranteed limits will not be reimbursed and you will be responsible for return shipping costs.
This guarantee is valid for the original repair customer only and is not transferable.EXCLUSIONS:
Fogged up Crystal: If you notice moisture in your 214 don't panic. Any watch that has been serviced within the previous 5 years still has an oil film on the steel gear shafts. As soon as practical, do the following: if outside use a dime to remove the battery cover and place the watch, battery side up in the sun for approximately 5 minutes (caution: do not allow the watch to become overheated). On cloudy or rainy days, go to a dry, or air conditioned location, remove the battery cover and leave it off long enough for the moisture to evaporate out of the case. When you close the hatch the humidity in the case will be at an ambient level.
On hot humid days, moisture problems are exacerbated by a sweaty wrist so keep the watch in a pocket or briefcase until you are in a comfortable environment.
Opening the case: Removing the back cover of your 214 can cause setting problems and will void your warranty. The back cover must be installed properly in order to fix the location of the setting gear with relation to its gear train and hack spring (if installed). The threaded ring that secures the cover to the bezel (not the battery hatch) must be torqued down correctly. If the ring is too tight, the setting stem may not engage the hands. If the ring is too loose, the hour and minute hands could become locked.
