  1. I currently have 3 Landeron 48 movements without cases that are working and I need cases for them. I have searched ebay and the only cases I can find cost more than the movements. Does anyone know of a source for used cases? I don't care if they are in great condition as long as they are complete or just missing the crystal. Like many of you, I do this as a hobby and don't have a lot of money to invest. So I need them to be as affordable as possible. Thanks for any info.
  2. If you just want a movement to practice with I would suggest you purchase a Chinese clone movement. They are almost identical in construction and don't cost a fortune if you accidentally break something.
  3. I found a site showing watches that are currently using that movement. https://watchbase.com/eta/caliber/6497-1 Did you need a movement or just looking to buy a watch with that movement? You can always build a watch with that movement quite easily. Mark has a video online that will show you how to do it.
  4. Have you tried watchwatchwatch-uk on ebay? I have purchased from them and the quality and prices are very fair. They are one of the few dealers that has XXXL bands. http://www.ebaystores.com/watchwatchwatchsuperstore Sorry the prices are in dollars, I am in the U.S..
  5. Hello everyone. Another new person joins the group (me). Found this forum while looking for a safe way to clean a vintage watch dial. I have watched all of Marc's videos in the past and didn't realize he had a forum as well or I would have joined earlier. I have been repairing pocket and wrist watches for a couple of years now and it's a hobby that keeps me busy. I try find different types of movements and complications to work on so I have something different every time. I started with pocket watches and worked my way to wrist watches as I gained confidence in my abilities. There is still a lot I don't know, but I am learning. And I thank Mark for teaching me without even knowing I was there watching his videos. My two latest projects are a Waltham 18 size P.S. Bartlett pocket watch, that needs a new fourth wheel pinion and a Landeron 48 chronograph I just purchased that I hope only needs a good cleaning and oiling. Thanks for being there guys with your advise. There a lot of us who need it.
