  1. Hi, everyone! I am a very apprentice-level watch tinkerer who like to find very second-hand watches for cheap at the local goodwill or flea-market and do my best to fix them up and make them work. My favorite name is Seiko just because of the availability and low-stakes it is. Plus, the watch that got me interested in watches in the first place was a Seiko SQ that I found cleaning out an abandoned trailer. Essentially, I am extremely new and un-practiced but I have steady hands and an eagerness to learn- So I am open to any and all advice! Thanks for reading ~Mike
  2. Hello, everyone! I have come into the ownership of an Omega Cal.342 and need to service it; The pawl-bearing assembly needs replaced and the balance wheel (I think) needs replaced too. The problem is the balance wheel, though, because this is the first watch I have worked on at these high of stakes and I am nervous about damaging it when taking it out. Furthermore, I am having trouble placing the main support plate back on all of the movment wheels. Do you have any tips or pointers on ensuring every staff/stem is properly lined up to replace the plate? Thanks for the help ~Mike
