  1. Hi. My name is Tony. I'm from New Jersey, in the United States. I have a modest entry level collection of quartz and mechanical watches. I enjoy repairing electrical, mechanical, pneumatic, and hydraulic equipment. I want to learn how to maintain and repair a wide variety of watches. I'm looking forward to learning about watch repair and making Friends in this forum.
  2. Hello everyone! I am Santiago and this is the first time for me in a forum. I have always loved watches but since I found an spanish-language facebook group on vintage wristwaches the past year I´ve started to become obsessed with them. They are fascinating. I came across this forum through the Watch Repair Channel on youtube. I have been searching for a watchmaking school here in Argentina and I couldn´t find any but a couple of places where they give "watch repair" courses. However, I am really interested and until I start attending any of those, I decided to go all by my self in the le
  3. Hello everyone, I am french, 64 years old , retired and leave in Indonesia . I always had a passion for watches and start collecting them 40 years ago. I must say that After a very active life I am getting bored and decided to spend time with my passion. I am sure I will be communicating with many of you in a near futur. Good day to all of you. J-C
  4. Hi, New to this, but have always enjoyed watches, but now getting more involved with easy repairs.. Thanks for having me, Alan
  5. 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
  6. I'm happy to finally start posting on this terrific watch repair community forum. I've been a member for almost a year, but have been mostly searching the forum for asked and answered questions that might help me with my novice watch repair techniques. I'm a vintage watch enthusiast with a special love of Timex watches from the 1950s through the 1970s. I developed an interest in watches about 4 years ago when I rediscovered two mechanical watches (a vintage Longines and a Seiko 5) that my father had left in a desk drawer years ago before he passed. Amazingly, both ran in spite of never having
  7. Hi everyone. I'm brand new to watch repair, but I'm starting to really get into it as a hobby. I'm a 30something American living in Taiwan. Right now I'm really interested in old Walthams from the 1920s and 1930s, and old Hamiltons from the 40s and 50s. I have a few real-life friends who do repairs for one of the big Swiss companies, so they're mostly to blame for me getting into this. I normally don't join forums, but talking to experienced people seems like the best way for me to solve some essential challenges, and hopefully to learn.
  8. Hi all Iv'e recently caught the watch bug. I have two non working 1970s Longines watches that got me interested in how watches work. Looking forward to discussing watches with you all

  10. Hello everyone, I’m new to the forum and new to collecting vintage watches. I look forward to good conversation and an education as I move forward. Thanks in advance.
  11. Hello, I am Robert I am new and this is the first time I have browsed this website. I collect all types of watches and own many, unfortunately, most of my collection would be considered junk watches. These watches do not have much use, but for some reason, I like having them around. I am a novice repairman and plan to take the courses offered on this site. I have a strong wish to increase my knowledge about watches. I can't explain it, but my desire to learn more has increased over time. It is sad that horology is a declining field. Today's electronics have made an impact on this industr

  14. Hello from Miami, Fl. My name is Robert and I've been a "watchmaker hobbyist" (if this is possible) for sometime now. I'm currently following 2 instruction classes about watch repair on line. One offered by the TimeZone School (Otto Frei et al) and another about the Seiko 7s26 by an Australian watchmaker (the link escapes me at this time). I'm working on ETA/Unitas 6498, ETA 2801-2 and Seiko 7s26, all obtained from ebay....not in great shape but I've managed to make them work again, especially the seikos. I've covered so far all the disassembly, cleaning and assembly (along with some troub

  16. This is my first post and I have been lurking for a few weeks checking the forums and watching those excellent videos, I have just taken apart my first watch and am stuck with putting it back together, but I am giving it a go until I no longer have a clue how to do it then I shall ask in the forum. I love this site as its full of interesting topics and people who like me have an interest in watches, I don't have any expensive watches as yet but I have bought one or two from boot sales that might prove interesting, 2 Claude Valintinis', which I think are the real deal but will have to check
