  1. Whilst cleaning out my father in laws attic ready for a new roof my wife found this little Siro Oris watch. The hair spring is broken and the balance staff pivots are broken on first quick look and not sure what else has gone but some hope it winds and the hands move.
  2. Well done you, it looks great, whats more you made it
  3. I would love a watchmakers lathe but postage and import duty’s are more than the price of a little secondhand lathe from America, not many selling them in this country unfortunately
  4. Picked up the Swiss case from eBay, brand new but from the sixties I believe. Unfortunately can’t source a 10 1/2 mechanical movement so fitted a Swiss Ronda quartz movement. The dial is a genuine 1963 uncirculated half penny which I machined down to .5 mm and then silvered. I made it for my wife's birthday who was born in 1963. She absolutely loves it Just normal dial silvering compound

  11. I downloaded Timegrapher app for my iPad and bought a condenser mic from amazon, fitted it to a 50mm steel block with a hole drilled into it. It works perfectly giving accurate readings
