    Mechanical time keepers. History of time keeping from John Harris forward. Current infatuation, Oris wrist watches of the mid to late 1900s. Avid wood worker. Built my own bench in the form of a roll top desk. Made specifically for working on my watches with inlay to mimic the carving on vintage pocket watch balance cocks I’ve worked on.

  2. This brings back such horrible memories of double latch belts, polyester slacks and Untrimmed facial hair. Oh the horror!! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Love the watch. Not a fan of the band. Kind of like putting a sports can in the garage...[emoji851] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Very nice! How does she run? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Perhaps the clutch is not fully engaging when the stem is in “wind” position? Perhaps something is keeping it from returning as it should? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Watch weasel is correct. I “assumed” the watch was cleaned and serviced and this was a reassembly discover issue. My very bad!! And I loath that expression. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Gently and small steps. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Depends on if there is a center sweep second hand. If not, yes. The minute hand mounts to the center wheel staff. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Purrs, from the s it looks like the center wheel staff is much smaller than the cannon pinion. Is ther visible space between the staff and the cannon pinion? If so, perhaps the center wheel post is worn or not original? To tighten the cannon pinion to fit the staff should be an imperceptible adjustment measured in microns. If you have to tighten a visible amount, I think something else is afoot. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
