    • Wiith all the respect I disagree with the need or convenience of using a pin vice, and much less a lathe to tighten a stem into a crown, this could be one of the many things that can be done differently according to the individual preference.  The argument that is safer to hold the stem at the other end because the threaded one is weaker is not convincing to me, because no matter where you grab it, the most twisting (shearing) force will always be at the stress point - that is where the stem enters the crown. Just use cautious but adeguate force according to the stem size. More than seeing Mark doing with pliers in his video I am supported in my belief by not having ever damaged or broken a stem this way.
    • Hi  on the other side of the balance there is a brass screw which contains the "V conic bearing"  if you back off this screw you should have enough room to drop the balance in then do up the screw with just enough tension to hold it then fit the balance spring and wedge then re adjust the balance end shake.
    • hi I don't half pick em. Why has this watch got no lugs? How would you were it? It has no kind of connection type at all, like you could not were it as a nurse would, and there's no loop or anything for a chain. It appears pointless. Please put me out of my misery. cheers gary
    • I did a quick file check on my spares. Don't know about your stakes but mine are soft, so I'll be able to machine em in the lathe no problem. 
    • Hi like I said before just take your time and don't get frustrated, because putting a Timex back together can be frustrating. Lining up all the wheels and dropping on the plate. Pinning the spring will be a bit daunting first time around but gets easier with practice.     all the best
