    Something to lighten the day.

    Four Catholic men and a Catholic woman were having coffee. The first Catholic man tells his friends, "My son is a priest, when he walks into a room, everyone calls him 'Father'." The second Catholic man chirps, "My son is a Bishop. When he walks into a room people call him 'Your Grace'." The third Catholic gent says, "My son is a Cardinal. When he enters a room everyone says 'Your Eminence'." The fourth Catholic man then says, "My son is the Pope. When he walks into a room people call him 'Your Holiness'." Since the lone Catholic woman was sipping her coffee in silence, the four men give her a subtle, "Well....?" She proudly replies, "I have a daughter, slim, tall, 38D breast, 24" waist and 34" hips. When she walks into a room, people say, "Oh My God!"

    Desktop Victorian style clock

    Quarts has its place.. just not found where that is yet.... Brass movements will last 300+ years, Quarts movements maybe 300 days, therefore brass is more economic if you live that long.... yip we are very "old" school.

    replacing crown gasket (hidden type)

    Maybe I misunderstood that the gasket was at least partly accessible. If it is not, I think you should first remove the washer covering it, try unscrewing or pulling it gently. If it does not come out whole you may get more aggressive but be cautious in not damaging thread. Final option is fitting a new waterproof crown, generic are not terribly expensive.

    First Watch Project

    Thanks Nigel but I am wanting to improve/mod/learn on this one, not just return to working condition. I am going to make my own dial - it will probably be very simple.

    Something to lighten the day.

    An old one. Englishman Irishman Scotsman are stranded in the Sahara and have to make an arduous trek. They find an old lamp, give it a rub and poof, there's a genie, he says I grant you one wish each but only something to help your trek across the desert. The Englishman says. A large flask of water to quench my thirst. The Scotsman says, a wide brimmed hat to protect my head and face from the sun. The Irishman says. A car door. The other two look at him and say, what? Why? He replies, if it gets unbearably hot I can wind the window down.

    Something to lighten the day.

    Well, when Nigel Farag's lot have dragged us all back to 1926, I'm sure we will all be measuring our cloth in cubits, drinking our beer by the firkin and tugging our forelocks to our imperial masters once more. In the meantime I'll stick with Napoleon's system.. apart from kilometers of course 'cos those are bonkers. Speaking of which.. Lincolnshire archaeologists have found the grave of what is believed to be Britain's oldest man. The headstone was discovered by the side of a road that was once an ancient trackway. Careful examination of the enigmatic carvings on the stone have revealed not just his age (147) but the fact that his name was Miles from London !!!

    Something to lighten the day.

    In honor of Andy and all blondes: Two blonds were attending a series of lectures at a large nature conservancy regarding the flora and fauna of their area when the instructor suggested a one hour break so that the students could avail themselves of a quick walk to some nearby woods to put their newly gained knowledge to use. The two blondes, being the only ladies in the class paired up naturally. They were enjoying their walk when they happened upon some fresh tracks. "Oh look," said the first blonde. "Deer tracks". "No, responded the second blonde." Those are wolf tracks." "I'm certain those are deer tracks" responded the first blonde rather heatedly. "Well, unlike you, I actually paid attention during the lectures and those are beyond any doubt, wolf tracks" responded the second blonde, also with a bit of an attitude. They were still standing in the middle of the tracks arguing when the noon train came along and ran them both down.

    Being an ex-blond, I'm unable to understand your requirements... does that count?

    Help need on Slava 2427, SU movement

    There is not that many things that could go wrong . I happen to have a movement lying in the scrap bin I could guide you through the process in a few simple steps. The first thing is to see the date ring is aligned so it will not push upwards. Next inspect the day ring so ii's flat and nice.. as you can see the day click wheel is riveted on and needs to be firmly in place too. When it is put in place gently rotate it clockwise with a slight push, I use two finger for this but in the picture you just see one. Sometimes you just can push the day jumper into place with a needle throught the inspection holes. Finaly check the day lever is in place and thats it... The design is making it impossible to get into wrong position if everything is ok.

    Bergeron Automatic Oilers, yes or no?

    I got the 1A oiler to use on Seiko diafix jewels. They are a pain to oil manually. Right away I broke the tip of the oiler. Got a new tip, dropped the oiler while replacing the tip, thought for sure I'd broken it again, but no, just bent a bit. Works OK. Got it adjusted, those diabolical diafixes are now a piece of cake
