    I love vintage watches

    Hi Tiho, Welcomed to the forum. I collect vintage too, got a small collection, mostly Swiss, Russian and Japanese. Attached pic is my first vintage, Seiko Goldfeather.
  2. I did.........well sort of. I bght a Citizen Crystal 7 for restore. Wish me luck!
  3. I am using a cheap US cleaner, works fine with Elma 1:9, just repeat the process if the first round of cleaning is not sufficient. Just don't put the pallet fork in for cleaning, the jewel might drop off.

    when I was attending a watch repair class, we used Shanghai for practice and later I bght more chinese mvmt for practice. They are pretty cheap and you don't have to worry abu spoiling it.
  7. recently I bght a set of auto oilers frm the bay. Unlike the Bergeon, tis does not dispense oil on the press of a button. A small drop of oil will accumulate at the tip n u just apply it. Not sure if yours worked the same.

    Recently I purchased a set of auto oiler from the bay. Anybody here use this oiler? Is tis better than the manual oiler and oil cup?

    Thanks Mike for the warm Welcome. And yes I do hv a copy of Practical Watch Repairing and a timegrapher too. I have just cleaned and oiled a Russian Slava 2428. The date wheel mechanism is a bit tricky though. Hoping to complete it today or tmr.

    Hi, I am from Sinagpore. Was into watch collecting but took up a watch repair course a few months ago. Have been practicing with some old watches. And I hope to learn from all the experts here.
