  1. Waltham A11 8 Day aircraft clock

    nice find!! i love the aircraft clocks. they are such good looking pieces. you did well.
  2. Avia and Doxa….

    You'v got a great eye and a lot of success in looking for the good stuff, Louis. Those are a couple of nice pieces. Love the sub dials in the older watches. They have a lot of character to begin with. Is there any real way to know what year these watches are?
  3. I read through an older thread a while ago, and someone referenced a bench buffer. I was curious as to what's out there in a good quality buffer, and what are you guys using. I had an industrial buffer but had to get rid of it because I moved recently and couldn' take it with me. It was a monster. I'm ure there are smaller units for watchmaking.
  4. Silicone Grease (For Gaskets)

    I guess this begs the question: why is something OTHER than silicone used for case back gaskets if it destroys them? I've had numerous Omega F300 casebacks that I've had to soak in lighter fluid to be able to dig them out of their groove. They were mush and turned into a sticky black mess merely from age.
  5. That's a fine looking watch. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  6. yup....balance wheel. i seem to get the two mixed up for some strange reason.
  7. Record Watch

    very interesting hacking. thanks for that explanation, louis.
  8. Record Watch

    that is a beautiful watch. i've looked at a few record watches, but haven't pulled the trigger yet. i noticed this on the ranfft site. i've never heard of this function. what is it's purpose? Remarks micrometer regulator If the crown is pulled, the second hand continues running to the zero position and then stops.

    Yes, but you love a challenge. LOL Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  10. Hamilton Electrics....

    i haven't been keeping a tally of just how many you've acquired, louis. that is one helluva collection. they don't make those classy designs anymore, and it's a shame. i'm sure you're not done yet, either.
  11. Watch of Today

    every helvetia i've seen has been a great looking watch. this is no exception. that is very nice.
  12. Watch of Today

    i am totally unfamiliar with a huntana, but i love it!! very sweet looking. that is a perfect dress watch. if you ever felt the need to part with it, look here first. it's a beauty.
  13. Watch of Today

    louis - you don't see too many of them (seiko) in that combo - stainless case and gold finished dial. i love that look.
  14. Case refinish

    that's a beautiful job! it looks like you have a nice deep luster. i'd like to see before and after pics. what is the watch, anyway?
