  1. Any useful tips for putting back together a two piece stem? I am having a terrible time putting the movement back in the case with the stem intact in a front access benrus. Got it out easy enough, it just won't go back in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I appreciate it. I attempted to throw it on my "Timegrapher" aka the Watch Tuner Timegrapher app on my ipad with a mic to see how it was doing. I honestly have no idea how accurate the app is, I am guessing it is not terribly accurate just using a stock headphone mic catching all the surrounding noise but this is what I got from it. Not the prettiest but my setup isn't exactly the most accurate setup either.
  3. Found this wonderful Seiko 7625-8021 Sea Horse at a local estate sale for real cheap and had to snag it. It has the usual light wear and tear, but nothing that bad or that can't be buffed. The original band was busted on it unfortunately, missing the clasp, so I tossed on a temporary band (the only one I had that would fit it). It started ticking away right when I picked it up and so far has kept perfect time over the last 8 hours. After a few more practice watches I will attempt at giving this one a thorough cleaning, until then it may stay in the case to prevent running it dry for too long. Now for some pictures.

  4. That's when you know your doctor is getting paid by the hour ha. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. More accurate definitely. But will also take long. Most cases now a days the patient will have a pulse-ox on that will read pulse and you would just read the screen so accuracy isn't really needed, primarily because he likely won't ever actually check and count a pulse. The only time he would be checking a pulse manually, will be in emergent situations. In which case you likely need the fastest way to asses pulse which would be base 10. The only other time he will be checking pulses would be in extremities to just check for the presence of a pulse rather than the rate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Pretty much you count 10/30 beats of the heart and whatever the number on the pulse tach nearest the second hand is the pulse. So on the base 30 watch that I posted I would count 30 beats, and say the second hand was pointing at the 5 o'clock marker. That would make the pulse 72 bpm. Does that make sense?

  7. Have they banned neck ties yet? At least those have been shown in some studies to cause unnecessary germ exposure. I honestly don't know what I would do in the hospital for time if I didn't have my watch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I hear that! My YouTube subscriptions consist entirely of watches, woodworking, and fishing. Now if only I could find a little bit of time for all of those. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Jdrichard I actually stumbled on on these videos yesterday while cruising YouTube and thought the name looked familiar. Great videos! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. As a medical student myself I would agree with rogart63. I have been really wanting a wristwatch with the base 10 pulse grading. There are a bunch of different brands that make them, some much older and less showy as the seiko pictured. I fell in love with this base 30 medical wrist watch that I saw on Instagram a while back. A pocket watch is an awesome gesture, but it wouldn't really be of much use. Our pockets are already stacked full of papers, pens, stethoscopes, books, and snacks. I would fear that anything too nice would get damaged pretty quick. Wish your brother luck, and tell him that there is much greener pasture on the other side. 3rd year is much more enjoyable than the first 2 years of medical school, even if you have to take step 2 afterwards. And be understanding that the stress the month before that test is miserable. I studied roughly 15 hours a day, 6 days a week for a month. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I wonder if you could get a small piece of pith wood down in the bottom of those oiler sockets. That would help keep them clean and would wick away any extra oil left on the oilers.
  12. Very interesting video. I always wondered how the tuning fork mechanism translated to rotational force. Also I have been watching TAOFLEDERMAUS videos for years, their videos are far to entertaining.
  13. @Douglas1701 Awesome looking balance tack!
  14. That is rough! Being in medical school myself, I always hate to hear these types of stories because ultimately these types of situations will likely be out of my hands. Even though it will generally be the physicians name that gets trashed in the process. It's just a shame that you get that much of a run-around for something that is as important as your health. It sounds very similar to the veterans hospital here in the states that are just so poorly managed. There are many doctors that truly care about veterans, but the system ultimately makes it impossible for patients to get in to their physicians. I have heard so many stories at the VA similar to yours where people just get the run-around. Hopefully you have smoother sailing in the future. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Enjoyed the walkthrough. This is actually something I may need to do here soon possibly. I have an Elgin 554 movement with a broken impulse jewel. I was thinking about just buying a donor movement and replace the entire balance, but I am not sure how this would affect the timing.
