Hey guys, My wife and I started our little company in Borneo back in 03. When covid hit and things got crazy, I stumbled down the horological rabbit hole. I fell HARD. Next thing I know, I'm on this forum, modding, assembling, and restoring old watches. The wife, bless her heart, she put her foot down and said I cannot buy or make any more watches for myself. Well, a horological addict is still a addict and I am no quitter. So I figured, why not make some watches for my employees who have been with us for over a decade, they deserve something special. It sure is not for me. So the planning started early this year, scouring the interwebs for parts that will scratch this itch and make my watchmaking dreams come true. It was a tough slog, looking at all those tempting parts, dials, hands, cases and movements. I think I managed to gather all the parts that I needed and with some waiting, elbow grease and much choice swearing, I think I put together what I want to gift my guys and gals. So here's what is wild. I got about 40 of these things to make by the middle of the year. FORTY. Its like I got a whole watch making factory in my actual factory. Wish me luck folks, I am on a watchmaking mission, and nothing is going to stop me. Except maybe the wife, if she finds out how many watches I'm really making. Stephen
Hello Can anyone provide me with links to watch dial re-sellers or sellers other than Ebay or Etsy? I'm interested in sourcing a unique watch dial as a starting point for a watch build. The dial could be wooden or have a painting on it etc. Something unique and interesting. From there I will go onto to find a case, movement, hands and strap; but its the dial that will be the source of inspiration. I have found some interesting dials, however the seller only wants to sell in quantities of 100 or more. Thanks you in advance for any help that can be provided. Michael
