  1. Below is a Breguet designed automatic pocket watch movement from 1780, among the first self winding watch movements. Not sure why someone would make one other than an ode to these early innovations... Sent from my Redmi 4X using Tapatalk

    Solid 18K Gold Lug Repair Advice

    Thanks for all the answers guys! I'm going to take the safer option of having it laser welded, a jeweller got back to me with a thorough description of how he would tackle the issue based on the pictures and a fairly reasonable quote, plus I've heard good things about him. Which is probably the biggest factor for me. Will revert back to the thread when I get it back. Fingers crossed!

    Solid 18K Gold Lug Repair Advice

    Thanks again OH, that's a relief. Now to find someone that does want it... is there anyone in the UK you would personally recommend?, I would be content to post this off. Otherwise I can try a few more relatively local places and the NAJ list Mark sent.

    Solid 18K Gold Lug Repair Advice

    I went to a well recommended local jeweller... He advised me in order to solder the lugs he would have to bring the case up to such a high temperature that it would likely warp the case. Is there any truth in this? Before I went in he was confident he could fix it, but made this claim based on the shape of the case.

    Thanks for the reply guys! Now I just need to find a jeweller I can trust with it. Anyone have any recommendations for someone in the UK or Ireland I can send it to?
  11. Hey guys, I picked up an old boxed Seiko Cronos in 18K solid gold from Japan, I am absolutely delighted with it, however I noticed one of the lugs has a little bit of sideways play. The bond between the lug and the case appears to be cracked, as I hope I've shown in the photos. I'm wondering what the best way to go about this repair is, is there some kind of epoxy I could use to secure this? or is soldering/resetting the bond possible with a conventional soldering iron? Thanks so much for the advice in advance, I know there is a lot of information available on soldering lugs online, but given that my lug is still in place, and is partially secured I hope there is a simpler solution.
  12. I noticed you had an MKS set in some of your videos Mark, and I think without hearing much else this gave me a lot of confidence in the set. Do you happen to know the approximate age of the set? Sent from my Redmi 4X using Tapatalk
  13. Finally got my staking set! I picked up an MKS set from Japan, probably hard to tell from the pics but the set is in in amazing condition for it's age. Stakes and anvils are pretty much pristine. Box needs some TLC from light damage in transit though.
