  1. Hi Andy, the previous owner of all the above watches has had a go at them all ! He said, " the Rondamatic was running fast and the Oris was slow, so got his mate to adjust them and they both stopped" ! Can't imagine why lol. I will try your suggestion about the stem removal. They were cheap and ideal for me to practice on, and the bonus is I know out there there is someone worse than me ! Thanks Andy for your time and advice.
  2. PS, any idea how to remove stem and crown from the Rondamatic? The silver button and the indent either side of the stem does nothing, nor the screw, I am stumped ! The balance spring appears to be glued??? And is wrecked I think.
  3. Hi all, the postman has just knocked with my latest purchases ! Each owing me the sum of £3.27 each including postage. The pocket watch is a "runner" but I haven't got a clue what it is, or was before the case went missing? The Oris looks ok, but the balance spring is all over the place, and the Rondamatic also looks clean but again the balance spring is total mess! More like a rat's nest.
  4. Hi Jim, welcome to the happy factory. Loads of excellent advice on this forum from some really knowledgeable people. The answers are just a question away. When I said lots of knowledgeable people I wasn't including myself.
  5. Hi Speedmaster, welcome to the happy factory, it's so friendly that I have taken up permanent residence. Enjoy the forum.
  6. Jdm, thank you, having a good read up now. As I know zilch I rely on other WRT say! The apps obviously are appealing money wise and because you have instant access. But having a timegrapher on my desk would be easier for me as our main computer is in another room,,,. And is usually locked in the shopping channel lol.
  7. Thanks for taking the time, off to Google your suggestions.
  8. Not sure what is on main computer, I rarely use it jd, mostly use my Hudl. Will check in the morning as I don't want to wake grumpy up to ask lol. Many thanks.
  9. Thank you jdrichard, I am off to Google it, when I started looking I didn't realise there were so many out there, and I have ended up not being able to see the wood for the trees ! Thanks again.
  10. Hi Jdm, I was looking as to which timegrapher ? I have absolutely no knowledge of them and was looking to being pointed in the right direction. Many thanks
  11. Ops ! Sorry, have now posted in tool section.
  12. Hi all, first,, my knowledge is very limited and I am about to enrol in Mark's tutorials and I need some sound advice. I have the basic tools etc but feel it's time to invest in a timegrapher and ultrasonic cleaner, there are so many my head spins! Any ideas as to which? would be so helpful to me. Also to any of you that have completed Mark's courses, any tools that were a must have? Many thanks in advance.
