  1. Hello there, When this summer my son Jules was born, I was looking for something to celebrate his birth. Quite coincidentally, YouTube suggested a watch video which I looked at and now I'm here I really fell in love with those small but big feats of engineering and would love to try some servicing/repair out as a hobby. I'm a big fan of stuff that requires full focus like chess or assembling and painting my Warhammer miniatures. Time to roll up my sleeves and see what this rabbit hole has to offer! See you on the forum, Louis
  2. Hello all, I have always been fascinated with mechanical watches and have enjoyed my constantly changing collection over the years. While I've "tinkered" with some of them, I have decided to take it to the next level and see where it all leads me. Starting with a (probably) 1919 Hamilton (of Lancaster, PA) 956 pocket watch that is in serious need of a good service and attention in general. Thanks for taking a moment. Dan.
  3. Hello Forum members, What a great forum is this! Let me introduce myself: My name is Sven and I'm from the Netherlands. I'm a watch enthusiasts for more than 25 years now and own(ed) some great watches. I'm a big fan of complications in a watch like a Perpetual calendar. I've just started to give my watch passion a new chapter and going to begin with a basic course on mechanical watch making. I'm so excited about this and I think you'll find me here often in the future. Thank you for your reading and have a great day! Grtz Sven
  4. Hello, I have just joined the forum. My name is Deborah Bell and I run a mechanical watch and clock museum with my mother, in Haltwhistle Northumberland- 'Mr George's Museum of Time'. The museum is based around a series of children's stories which my mum wrote about her father who was a watch and clock repairer in Northumberland- the 'Mr George the clockman stories'. My mum became a repairer herself and has a huge collection of watches, clocks, tools and parts so we decided to bring everything together so children could learn all about mechanical "proper" time and Mr George, and adults could look at the collection and reminisce. She still repairs both watches and clocks now and has her workshop on our museum premises! Hope to chat to a few of you on here!
  5. I have always loved watches - whether it was wearing them or just looking at them. I didn't know that people actually collected watches - I thought I was the crazy one. I started buying them at thrift shops on the looks alone.Then I learned about name brands and vintage watches and super-expensive watches and I was fascinated. I still cannot afford those for the most part but I have been lucky a few times on eBay, though. I have a few Raymond Weil's, some vintage Tissot's, one vintage Omega that needs a battery, and a few others. I am retired now and watches have become my hobby, including buying and selling them. I came to this site looking for help with my Omega. Hopefully somebody knows how to. Nice meeting you all and maybe I can be of help to some. Juanita
  6. Greetings! I am still very new to the hobby but have been tinkering with watches off and on for the past few years. I first started playing around with the cheapest 60’s and 70’s era Seiko watches that I could purchase from eBay (which was pretty frustrating as a total newbie as they often turned out to be 'Frankenwatches' that were impossible to regulate). However, I quickly learned to spend a little more money collecting watches that were relatively original and intact. My interest is still mostly in collecting and tinkering with old Seiko watches, but I have recently been interested in old American (mostly Elgin) wrist and pocket watches. Anyway, I was very excited to find this forum as it seems to be a fantastic resource and friendly place to share and discuss this hobby with others. Best Regards Theodore
  7. Hi, recently I bought a SEIKO 5 with a 7S26C caliber, then I found the Watch Repair Channel on YouTube, than I found the videos of this channel, which are about exactly THAT movement...and the rest was only another step forward into this forum. I like to learn about movements in general and especially about the 7S26C. Cheers! :) mcc
