Subscriber Benefits

3 posts in this topic


I had subscribed at $25/month for a couple of months but I didn't see any real benefit to doing this. I think, at the very least, there should be a confirmation/welcome or some kind of monthly newsletters for subscribers - even if it's just a list of what you can do as subscribers. The only actual confirmation I got was from PayPal. Of course, I was able access places I had not been able to access before but I only found out this by accident one day.

I guess I just didn't get anything out of it; my fault entirely in all likelihood.

Hi Dave,

I am sorry it's not for you but really, I genuinely cannot see how I could make the Subscriber benefits more clear. Both on the signup page and the individual pages encouraging membership.

If I could be more clear then please let me know as I do not want to cause offense to anyone ...

Hi Mark

I plan to subscribe again. 

Is there a separate "Members" drop down menu? I can't remember one. If not, that might be a good idea. It would be a constant reminder of membership benefits with separate headings clearly defining what is available to subscribers. 

I seem to remember membership headings were placed at the bottom of the page. 

Anyway, that is my suggestion.

    • I hadn't though of it like that, thank you!  Perhaps I should rummage through my scrap bin...
    • 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 .
    • The Wife and I are National Trust members and we love the freedom of "we're bored, the kids need air" impromptu trips to local sites.  The annual membership is a pittance when you consider the free parking and access to history (and some rather nice walks and tea-rooms). Whilst at Scotney Castle yesterday we found, in the gift shop, a jewellery maker who used old watch parts to make charms, pendants and brooches.  Now I've seen ladies watch mechanisms turned into cuff-links before but there was an old gents wristwatch movement here, (unmarked and faceless) turned into a necklace/pendant. What "upset" me more were the brooches.  Old, enameled dials, in sizes from Gent's wrist to various pocket watch.  On the back they had epoxy-ed(?) a brooch-pin.  Some of these dials were marked and there were several that I recognise from past eBay sales as being from makers active in the 19th and 20th centuries ("J. W. Benson" stood out). I realise that there must be a market, or they wouldn't stock them.  But it strikes me as "wrong"?
    • This is one of these threads that if discussed across a table would take a  different path.  It is not always easy to put across your exact feelings in a manner that you want, and as such it misconceptions and irritation can result. Ishima has asked me to lock this thread and I agree.  The last thing that he or any of us wanted, is this to turn into one of these runaway vociferous threads.   The tread is now locked!
