  2. Hello Mike, Like you I have not quite figured out this site, my navigation skills need to improve. Hey some food for thought, my father is about to have his 91st birthday.

I am a novice repairman and plan to take the courses offered on this site. I have a strong wish to increase my knowledge about watches.
