Post an interesting snapshot of what you are working on. Wether you are a pro photographer, or taking snaps on your phone, it does not matter - we love watch movements and we want to see them and talk about them.
I suppose it's better the movements are used for something that gives pleasure rather than put in the bin. At least folk are then appreciating the beauty of the movements that are otherwise hidden in cases when they were functional.
Now where did I put my cuff links?
I also bought a small bottle to clean the hairsprings on Hamilton Electric watch balances . The balance also has a coil attached that i wouldn't want to submerge in any cleaning solution , so I use a glass eyedropper to place the solution only on the hairspring and use a delicate ladies cosmetic brush to clean the spring and my blower to dry it. I'll repeat a few times .
Seems to work , just use a light touch .
