  1. I love Russian watches. I would love to see Mark do a tear-down on a Vostok movement like he did recently with the Chinese clone 2824.

    Stem Removal on Sellita SW200-1

    Sorry to post a n00b question, but it's somewhat related... After you put the hands back on the watch how do you remove the stem (in order to put it in the case)? Is it ok to put the face down on the Movement Cushion Pad, I'm worried that doing that may bend the hands or something?
  3. I really enjoyed this thread as well.. now off to cousins to buy a Ronda 715 ;-)
  4. well done a lovely looking watch

    yes I understand that i'm talking about the method of oiling

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but is this also a suitable method for oiling a watch. seems way easier than oiling the pallet fork directly.

    Ultrasonic Cleaners

    @PJA are you using the ultrasonic cleaner to clean watch parts? I'm keen to get one as well and would like to hear how you find it. Did you get the little baskets like this https://www.esslinger.com/brass-ultrasonic-cleaning-basket-with-stainless-steel-mesh-1-diameter/ for the watch parts? what cleaning fluid do you use and do you need to rinse or anything ?
  10. I love reading these types of posts. more pics please. and keep us updated

    Selecting a Tension Ring crystal

    Rather than starting a new thread, can I ask about this crystal. There are so many to choose from, I'm not sure where to start. It seems the one I have the chrome ring actually holds the dial in place ie, if I put the dial in the case with out the crystal on, there is nothing stopping it falling out the front of the case. The watch is a Tissot seastar

    Screw organisation

    Raketa watches are beautiful, "pics or it didn't happen" [emoji39]
  13. What did you use to make the printing plate. It looks beautiful. Sent from my MI 5s Plus using Tapatalk
  14. I hope this is the right place to post this question? But how does this even work ..is it just there for show? it's hard to tell from the photo's but looks like there is no escape wheel on the right balance but there is one under the left balance? http://www.good-stuffs.com/Shanghai-Diamond-double-skeleton-flying-wheels-automatic-watch_p_296.html
