  1. I just posted over on Ī©Forums, but thought I'd share here as well. After 28 years in the military and 22 years working for a Defence contractor, I thought it was time to hang up the guns. Today was my last day of full time work. My occupation will now be described as "retiree". I had a morning tea with close workmates and then headed home at about 10:30. I got home and to my surprise my Darlin' had taken the day off and prepared a "Retirement Package" for me. I added the presentation picture from work and took a pic of the bounty. I think I can get used to this.

  2. Found this while looking for ideas for my new watchmakers space in our new place... I think it's Awesome! Based on the parts list, it seems it would cost just shy of $500 to build. Looks like a $1500+ unit if you ask me! Here's the link that list the different parts... http://www.ikeahackers.net/2014/03/ikea-watchmakertable.html

  4. Try pulling the crown out to the first click. If you wind it forward, the day wheel should click over, wind it backward the date wheel will click over. (or the other way around). Try doing both until you have it figured out and then set the day (English) and date to the day before, pull the crown to the time setting position and advance the hands until the day/date changes, keep going until you get to the correct time. Let me know if that work. Good luck with it CB.

  5. Hi All I saw some amazing pictures sent to me in Facebook where a watchmaker has put a key-wind / key-set old fusee into a wristwatch case. He has made a near sliding door on the back crystal for winding, and the case has a hinged front crystal for setting. I'd love to try and do this with one of my really nice old pocket watch movements - but I've never seen a watch case with a hinged front crystal before. Does anyone know if such watch cases exist ?

  7. That's excellent Douglas! Roger is a top man, he supplied me with case screws not long after he joined the forum. It's folk like him, and there are many, that makes the forum great! :)
