  1. What have I bought now!

    Lol. Wait until she goes to Tesco’s. That’s what I always did. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ultrasonic and transducer. Certainly more a cleaner than timer I wager Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. You know. It doesn't matter how long you've been repairing watches. You always see something new from time to time lol. That's an interesting design. A taper pin is more common. Looks like a shim which slides out. Please post more pictures as you progress. I am interested. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. As you may see, this movement is in pretty poor condition. It’s an old pocket watch movement, not regularly serviced, the plates are stained with corrosion and I suppose even when it did require repairs, the previous owner may not have invested much to have it done properly. As you can observe, the watch was gaining at a rate of over 500 seconds per day, the amplitude was way down at around 150 degrees and the beat error was considerable at around 4.5 milliseconds.
  5. Hi, Mark!  I can't seem to access the patron videos.  I've been a patron for 2 years already.  Would you mind checking why is this so?

     

    Cheers!

    The correct lubricant for any rubber seals is silicon grease. It's very cheap on eBay Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Day wheel for Omega cal. 752

    It was me and I made a mistake. I have since emailed you apologising. It is a co-incidence that the owner of the website you posted has the SAME email domain you registered with here at WRT. That was not Otto Frei but another website I had never heard of, and it was not a stretch for me to put two and two together - albeit wrongly. I have since looked further at that domain and realised that it is one of an ISP with many shared customers and co-incidentally you and that website owner must use that same ISP. To the OP - sorry for going off topic, we shall steer it back now [emoji4]
  11. To be fair - the only reason I worry about cork these days is when I break one trying to extract it from a bottle - always a bummer when that happens!
  12. Yes, and I'll wager they wont be available for much longer as the RM90 and Super Elite are completely discontinued now in favour of Elmas new jobbies.
  13. Your cork must have been special
