  1. Hi all, total newbie here, from Ireland. Got my first mechanical watches during lockdown - a 70s Vostok Komandirskie, '50s Oris cal 451, and then a box of old movements, parts, etc. Found this Smiths Astral National 17 in the box, stripped and cleaned it. Lost the cannon pinion in the process, and the clickspring was already broken, but apart from that all seems in good working order. Parts ordered, fingers crossed it's going to come out well. Movement is 61464E, looks very nicely made, and love the style of the whole watch. Here's hoping I don't mess anything up in the reassembly.
  2. Hello Sirs and Madams, I am delighted to start this journey, this is my first time opening a mechanical watch and actually unscrewing a screw =D This is a Soviet Slava wrist watch that my uncle gifted in the distant past... initially 20 years ago I though I over wound the spring and broke it because the crown almost turned in neutral and would not hold sprint tension... ISSUE: The crown spins almost freely and the watch will not hold the wind, the crown unwinds back. Here is what I have done - took the back plate off, observed the mechanism and a youtube video to fin
  3. Hello there watch fix fans. Here's (I hope) an interesting one for you. I have this beautiful small ladies 'Fero Feldmann' Swiss-made watch - it came in a bag of "used and to be repaired" watches. From what I can see, the mechanism seems in very good working order. Just a slight shake and it goes and goes. There is no strap, but that is not the issue here. The problem is the stem and/or crown. As you can see, there is definitely no crown. But I am wondering about the stem. The watch does have its case and edoes have, as you can see, a hole where the stem and/or crown will/s
  4. I just took apart my first working watch and I am having trouble with the three gears. Everything else is easy to reassemble but the three gears leading to the mainspring. How do you guys put them back together? I am new to this so any help would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Hello! I have a couple of watches that have a strange extra sound that I don't know where it comes from. Could you share your opinions about that? I attach the mp3 file so you can hear it and also a wave print screen so you can see it. It is not knocking, hense I also attach a print screen from WOS. One scenario would be that the "run to the banking" happens later then the "locking" instead of the same time. Fixing it would mean closing the banking pins. (just thinking out loud). I am waiting for your thoughts. Thank you! Bogdan tic.mp3
  6. Hi, I've asked a question before working out how to introduce myself. Anyway my interest in joining the forum stems from watching videos on YouTube and in particular the recent discovery of Marks Watch Repairs channel. They are phenomenal. My name is Anil and I'm a Civil Engineer by profession. I got back into wearing mechanical watches a couple of years ago - I went straight in at the deep end and bought myself a Rolex Daytona and admittedly knew very little about Rolexes let alone a Daytona. Its still by far the best Chronograph and the most comfortable watch bracelet I have in my
  7. I just got a new Chinese movement (TY2867), and when I push the winder in, the movement won't start. I've manually wind it a few times, pull the winder out and push it back in. What could be the issue? Thanks
