  1. Greetings, fellow horology lovers! My name is Chris. I live in central Florida in the US. I only finished Mark's online course about a month ago and find myself obsessed with watches. It seems to creep up on you unawares. This is my first post though I've been a patron for a couple weeks or so. I've been busy online watching Mark's videos and buying every watchmaker's tool that comes to mind. My wife's gonna kill me when she see's our next credit card invoice. I'm a 63-year-old roofer who has always suffered from shaky hands. What better hobby could I have gotten into? Aside from surfing when I was in my 20s, this is my first hobby ever. I recently won a bid on eBay of some poor soul's tools left behind and I have three that I have no real idea what they are. I thought it might be fun to upload a photo and see if you guys could help a noob out. If anyone wants to see more or closer shots, just let me know. Thanks
  2. Hi there, I am from Montreal and I love reviving dead movements and get them ticking again. Mark’s vids are simple and efficient and it is what brought me here. Oh and this is a hobby, even though I do tend to take myself a little too seriously at times. Apologies in advance and cheers to you all!
  3. Greetings masterful wizards. I'm Lace, from Nebraska, which is located in the middle of America. Pleasure "meeting" you. This is some group. I'm more than a bit awestruck by the talent here; a bit envious too. As a neophyte, many post shoot over my head like a meteor shower. Learn something with every post I read. Always "liked" watches, and fell in love when I finally was able to afford a couple sweet skeleton, jeweled tickers. Still have plenty of "knock around," but nice, battery operated watches, which seem to be in sync and die all at once. Decided it didn't make sense to pay to have a bunch of watch batteries changed when I could do it myself- or so I thought. My first attempt, grabbed my trusty Swiss Army knife and commenced prying a couple backs off. Massacred them. Terrible scratches. Didn't really need those two fingers anyway. Ahem. My learning curve isn't as sharp as I'd expected, but my knife sure is. Tell me, good people, how did you get started? (I offered three different jewelers money to show me some of the basic tricks-of-the-trade. They all looked at me as if I'd asked for a kidney, and offered to do any repairs/maintenance for me. Phooey! As a tech/electronic goddess, I'm a DIY'er who has the aptitude to learn this skill. I hope...) Is there a remedial watch course somewhere? Must be. I've also purchased cheap, and worthless tool sets. What are the most useful, and necessary tools does one really need? Appreciate any feedback you have, and I am thoroughly enjoying reading, and mentally grappling with, all your fine posts. Thanks for letting me join the party. Tic-toc. Gotta go save civilization. Tootles for now. ps. Perspective~~~ The photo is the inside of a violin.
