  1. Mark see my latest post re- RCDesign who has disagreed with my reply. He is now asking for his membership and pervious posts to be deleted. I have not bothered to reply to his latest complaint. Maybe I am wrong.

      ...yes, in so many ways!

      By your action you are saying that copy/fake watches are ok and you are even willing to aid in repainging such a watch. This is beyond me and as far from watches and watchmaking as you can get. If this is going to be accepted on the forum, then yes, -Please remove all traces of my name on it - I want no part!

    Kindly message for support via the following link - I don't want to provide support via this forum as we may have to talk about personal details. https://www.watchrepairlessons.com/contact-us/ Thanks for your understanding.
  3. Hello Mark,

    I had this sent to me. I can't find it. can you help.

    I can't seem to find a link to donate to this site. I'm a fairly regular user and I detest free riders with a passion. Can you point me in the correct direction so that I can do my bit to assist with the expense of maintaining this site. On a second note, shouldn't such a link be obvious so that anyone can find it without difficulty?

    Problems signing in

    I assume you are referring to Watch Repair Lessons website as you would not have been able to post this message here on the forum if you were not signed in. So, as I have mentioned in all the emails sent out, the topic posted in Patreon and the notice at the top of this forum, you need to CREATE an account on Watch Repair Lessons website in order to access it - it just takes a second to do, and your Patreon account will sync automatically assuming you use the same registered email, not sure what the problem is with doing that. Again, as mentioned many times in all the emails and notices, the video and lesson content should be separated from this forum so that this forum is not seen as a tool for me to sell my courses. I want and have always wanted the forum to be independent. The Lessons and content are one thing and this forum is another. This has been posted at the top of the forum for weeks now... This is posted in Patreon.... And also several emails have been sent via this forum and via Patreon. I have tried my best @Folkvisor However, If you are uncomfortable with the way I am structuring this then kindly let me know and I will sadly help to close your Patreon subscription.

  9. Sorry to say - neither of those lubricants have the correct properties to act as a braking grease.

    Panasonic G7

    Panasonic G7 has its own native macro lens. It's a 30mm (So 60mm full frame equivelent). I use it as a regular prime though as I want to get in even closer with the camera further away. The solution for me was a Viltrox EF-M2 speedbooster and Canon EF macro 100mm and 60mm prime lenses. Both very sharp buy the 100mm is the most useful to me. Shoot in 4k and use a 1080p timeline in Davinci Resolve and you will be able to crop in even further. Or shoot in 1080p and use the Ex-tele function on the G7 which effective turns your lens into two primes. Side note - I recently upgraded to the GH5 and have not regretted it. But the G7 is an amazing camera so I decided to keep it - they compliment each other well. Hope this helps. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Watch Building ETA 2892

    Using the 2892 movement, lets put together a nice looking wristwatch using all parts sourced from eBay.
  14. It's a very easy repair for any competent jeweller to be fair. Especially as it has not broken completely so does not need re-aligning. You should do a search on the NAJ website for a local jeweller... http://www.naj.co.uk/en/member-services/member-search.cfm
