  1. God day, I have designed a 3 part jig for adding a sunburst finish to a watch case restoration available here: 1) Jig: 2) Anvil: 3) You will need 1 of the the following bearings: Here is an example (not my watch) of the type of finish this tool is designed to achieve on the case of the watch: Summary A tool to add a sunburst finish to a watch restoration. you need to add a bearing (see Below) to the anvil and then attach this to the jig, this should allow you to turn the watch 360 degrees. Then using a needle file (sideways) in the groove(s) you can apply a sunburst in a sawing motion as you turn the watch. Details of bearing to be used: Skateboard Bearings: 608-2RS ball bearings Size : 8x22x7mm, rubber sealed deep groove. Available on amazon
  2. I cleaned this watch today 12/18/2017. Elgin 0 size 7 jewel manufactured in 1904, run quantity 2000. What fabulous craftsmen we had before us, truly amazing. Had to solder hunting case front lid back on at the hinge. Remove metal spring for the lid prior to laser soldering. Watch was in good condition and case is absolutely beautiful. Overhaul, new white alloy mainspring, hunting case glass crystal, solder front lid back to case and new bow installed and properly tightened to take out the flop Check out the 7 jewel on the timegrapher.
  3. Had a broken case lug on this vintage watch today. I soldered it back together and thought I would make a video of my method.
