    I always take photos when I take a pocket watch apart, If it's a movement type I don't have photos of already. You would be surprised how often I look back at them

    Montgomery Ward

    This is a recent acquisition all it really needed was a good cleaning and a mainspring. It is a 6size Seth Thomas made for Montgomery Wards stores. It.s in a beautiful gold box hinge case.

    Greeting from Bavaria

    Welcome Mathieson! vinn3 is correct, get a old cheap P/W or two that you can learn on (and most likely break) rather than messing up your Grandfathers. Can we see a photograph ?.

    Recent Repair

    I just finished repairing a Hamilton #940 21j open face 18size P/W. made in 1909 I have been working on it as I get the parts needed. I cleaned it , replaced the mainspring, balance staff, pallet jewels, top balance stone , and crystal . I had a bit of trouble with the timing , but finally got it to 20 seconds a day, which I can live with. While doing that I finished a painting for an up coming show called "Kathleen Louise Passing Bald Head " So I'm happy today
