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.
Cheers guys, another 24hrs of testing and it should be spot on time wise, although the wife wanted to keep the original dial she now wants a new one as the one fitted is quite marked, and made of card limits cleaning possibilities, cousins do an aluminum one which seems the right size, then I need to paint the hands black again as they are quite shiney and very difficult to see unless close to the clock. Then I'll be taking the movement out again to replace the brass pins for new, ill have a look around locally to see if I can find anyone that can clean the case properly and get it back to the white it should be.
Yes I have many years working on watches (not Timex rubbish) I have worked on very high class watch movements and complicated watches. Russian watch movements are crap. The finish is poor there calendar mechanisms consist of stupid design. Swiss watches even their movements at the lower end have better finish. Russian watch movements against Swiss is like comparing a Lada to a Rolls Royce.
If you think they are good. Then I can only think you have had very little experience working with high grade Swiss movements or any other swiss movement.
