  1. I have seen videos of guys reluming the hands with a neutral white lume and then applying small amounts of coffee on top of the dried white lume. The results were good, but they went for a light brownish color. Maybe if you repeat that process several times, you may reach your desired color. But as disclaimer: I have never done it by my self, so do your own research on that coffee-aging-topic
  2. Thank you very much for your help guys. I have managed to get the case out of the movement, removing the bezel with a razor blade and then with my case knife. I do really appreciate your help! Now I have already learnt something new Thanks a lot, Sincerely, thebosston
  3. Hi everyone! I have this lovely ETA 7001 movement that would need a service. Sadly, I can't figure out how to get the movement out of its case. There were 2 "case holding" screws, but removing them didn't do the job. I can rotate the movement in its case 360 degrees, but it won't come out. Then theres that case, which seems to be made out of 2 parts. But the line separating them is so fine, I don't think any of my case opening tools would fit in between.

  5. Hello Together I have mainly worked on much bigger movements in the past 1.5 years. Now I've come across this lovely platinum case watch which doesn't work. I'd like to give it a closer look, but sadly, I can't manage to the get the movement out of its case. There is half of a crew head visible at 1. o'clock, but it did not turn, applying just light pressure with my screwdriver. Is turning that screw the right thing to do here? Thanks in advance for your time and advice. Sincerely, thebosston
  6. Hello Together I have been tinkering with watches for 1.5 years. I am getting better from time to time and mainly deal with larger movements to practice. I still want to learn a lot of things, my goal being to do a reliable watch service for private purposes later on. Kind regards from Switzerland, thebosston.
