I've just started this rather facinating hobby. I've tried a couple of cheaply made oldies and come to the conclusion that cheap watches are not good for beginners.
I bought 2 x 2614.2h and 2 x 2616.2h from Poland all very cheap so good for learning.
I've just stripped down one Poljot 2614.2h and that's restored my faith in my abilities. Nice sturdy design, couple of really good demos on YouTube.
I also got some jewelled ladies watches (2 are Sekonda) but they are a bit too tiny foe me at the moment.
The 2614 movement seems to be in good condition so I'm hope for some ticking soon!
I've always been into DIY but never at this micro level, a whole new experience.
