Skypilot has a great solution to the "problem". I have not as yet done that but am about to. One good thing about Accutrons is that after they are competently serviced and with modern lubricants they should be good-to-go for a long time baring a component failure. For the Accutrons, Bulova did not recommend periodic service as they did for their mechanicals. Bulova recommended service when the watch could no longer be regulated for accurate time keeping or when it stopped functioning.
