    Mums watch - "can you take a look"

    Thanks guys [emoji106] Hopefully I'll get a few photos today. Setting up my temporary little area for a few jobs and will try out this new light.
  2. She asked if I could take a look. When I turned up today, she handed me what I thought was a bracelet. A closer look revealed a tiny watch with a dial in a bit of a poor state. Of course she was joking but she just wanted to show me it. She claims its "about 100 years old" Any ideas if it could be really that old. If needs be I could try to open it up for more photos tomorrow once I've set up my new desk lamp.
  3. Just bought myself a useful little light from Lidl of all places. Claims to put out almost 700 lumens and is dimmable with 5 different colour temperatures. Was only £15. At first try, it certainly is bright. I'll be testing it soon when I replace the movement in my Breil One Ducati chronograph.

    Watch of Today

    Been wearing this today Bought for the price of a large Pizza Hut pizza. It was in a right state. Looked like this when I got it... No crystal and God knows what it was covered in.
  9. I know nothing about timegraphers but I do know that Califomia doesn't exist [emoji1]
  10. Have you downloaded the Sternkreuz catalogue on Cousins site? Loads of obscure crystals in there.

    Got the time side to work but the chrono just refuses. Can't figure it out. Maybe circuit block? I'll wear it as is for now on a matching leather strap.

    Chronograph pusher removal?

    Push the pusher in fully and you should see a miniscule c-clip. Under magnification, put a dab of rodico or blue-tac under the clip and push down with a small screwdriver or the proper c-clip tool to remove it. The Rodico/blue-tac should stop you losing the clip.

    Do I need the exact links?

    What's the clasp like? You may be able to use a clasp extender while you search for spare links.

    Rust on tweezers

    INOX is essentially Stainless Steel so shouldn't rust although my SS exhaust has [emoji35] I've read a while back of someone masking off the inside surfaces then applying a layer of car gloss to give a bit of protection.
