  2. Anil, If I’m not mistaken Tissot still provides time pieces for officers of the IDF today. I ran across a newer one for around $4,000. A chronograph as I recall, never worn. Gary Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Very nice piece Anil! I think it states, and my Hebrew is rusty, “ In recognition of the 25 years of service in the IDF” Keep posting I would like to see the movement and work you complete later! Gary Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Great ! Thanks for sharing! Something else for me to covet! LOL Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I’m curious as to how this plays out? Like a fantastic novel. Could the pallet fork bridge or the escape wheel bridge be warped or bent? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Awesome work and thank you for sharing! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Great looking watch! Keep us updated! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks everyone! I’ll take a look when I return! I couldn’t tell if it was a three prong driver or what! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hi Everyone! I have a question about a crown screw. I have never worked on a movement with a crown screw like the one in the photo. Is this going to require a special tool? Since I don't have the movement in hand it makes it difficult to tell but I thought someone could share their insight, please ? Thanks in advance ! Gary Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  11. Fantastic breakdown with the parts numbers too! Can't wait to see the reassembly and results! Thank you! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. I use Moebius 9504 for some but depends on the part function. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Hi Everyone, I found it. AS 636. Overnight in the bench it has dropped to+37 - +\- 16 and BE 0.1 and 291 I’ve demagnetised and still sporadic. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Hi Everyone, I am working on an old West End Secundas. I haven stripped it three times and reassembled but still cannot regulate it to a decent rhythm. I haven't found any issues but it did come with a new alloy mainspring. My guess is someone tried to work on it and put it in there. It is erratic will. Level out from -3 secs to -61. Then +47 to -3. As a last attempt I want to try a blue steel mainspring. However, I'm open for suggestions. amplitude is 251-289. BE is .5 With D/U or D/D. I cannot find am movement number to locate a new mainspring? Could anyone identify the one below? Not my watch but I borrowed the photo. Thanks for everything!

  15. In th US we also have Sally's a store related to beauty salon supplies (coiffure) they have white cotton gloves for $.89 each. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  16. I have a regular sized desk. Glass desk at that, however, what has worked for me was my chair is hydraulic and I can lower comfortably as if I'm sitting at a bench. Not optimal but works for me and I'm about 5'11" tall. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  17. Thank you! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  18. Not yet but I'm. A bit shiny at this hour! Lol Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  19. Hi Everyone! While I often times share my failures I am not as quick to share my successes! I have been limited in time but I have tried to dedicate a few hours to watches. It makes me happy! Below is my first attempt at a set of hands on an old Coleman beater pocket watch. I have to say getting the ratios correct and balanced is always going to be a challenge but I’m pleased with the results! in the lightlight exposure 1 minute lights off and I didn’t like the chapters yet, only the hands. I’m satisfied! Thanks everyone! Gary Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. If they are too tight this will not work but on most cases this little inexpensive tool is amazing! https://www.amazon.com/Friction-Ball-Watch-Case-Opener/dp/B0058EDAUA I usually purchase the less expensive ones on eBay! I keep a couple at all times . Good luck! Gary Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  21. Looks like a keeper and given the years and history in good shape! Service and tidy? Gary Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  22. Do you apply the shellac then heat and then insert the jewels. Sounds like a silly question but I’m playing it through in my head. Thanks! Gary Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
