  1. welcome to the best forum. judgeing by some of our posts; we can use an egineer. vin
  2. NOT TO WORRY; it is a problem caused by the internet. and authors. like "crown gear" or castle gear or "hunting case" or just "hunter". we can live with it. vin p.s. i like the above posted "time zone watch school" closssory. spelling is also a problem with the older guys.
  3. polishing or restoring screw heads is an art ! with a lathe (or a drill press) cut the head and then go to "wet and dry" sand paper to 1,000 grit, you are done. the slots are a whole different art. vin
  4. yes it's a clutch, when it wears down you can still wind it some. originally patented by Movoto. how can you tell which watches "have the clutch". vin
  5. the same can be said for ancord main spring. just know how to wind it. have you heard of a "lifetime main spring"? to each his own, cheers. vin
  6. sliping main springs and breaking grease. seems like it is more trouble than it's worth. why not just anker the spring? VIN
  7. welcome to the repair forum. you have probably worked on vntage railroad watches. the ones that were calibrated and those that were just named RR. i have my grandads RR. vin
  8. will isopropel alcohol desolve the shellac ?
  9. if its made in USA, the threads will be SAE pitch or maybe MM. it is a problem. you can find the answer in the US machinery handbook or open a new topic "lathe threads". so we will all know. vin
  10. welcome to the forum. my favorate suggeston is "when you take the stem out of the case, put it back in as soon as posable". as there is a winding gear in there thay may capsize. then you willhave to take the dial off to relocate the crown gear. welcome and good luck. vin
  11. REALLY ; after some reasearch, the best guest. it was a promotional watch made in Japan for the clone of the masda miata. much like the "Studabaker pocket watch". vin post script; the thing that caught my eye was the inclosed case wrench, most likley would only fit that watch
  12. good show, very good pic.s. the watch is a "raceing timer" ? vin
  13. i have known collectors that have bought them. beautifully made jobs! BUT can't sell them. sad.
