  1. Hi, I've been interested in watches and clocks for decades. Recently in another forum, someone posted "Show me you watch". So I did. Every day I changed y watch and tool a photo and posted it online. After 4 weeks (20 watches) I decided to stop as the only watches I have left didn't work. So this got me thinking. I have 3 pocket watches and a wristwatch that don't work. The pocket watches problems are all "Hair spring" (if that's the correct terminology). The wrist watch is another issue altogether - someone, before I bought it seems to have taken it apart and
  2. So, while waiting to fix the Seiko misadventures of my youth, I went looking for broken pocket watch movements on ebay. (I had read somewhere that a good way to start is clocks for their larger parts, then pocket watches as an intermediate stage and then wristwatches for the smallest movements and parts.) After losing several auctions for promising non-working pocket watches I found a New York Standard possibly "Model 11". It was mostly disassembled and there is much rust/corrosion. I think it's missing at least the clutch, for example. It needs new hands, but this isn't impossible. The main p
  3. So my Nana gave me my Gramps' Pocket Ben he's had as a work watch, but the chain loop on the top is missing. I took it to my local watch repair and they said that you can't replace that loop (I think it's called a bow?) on any watch because "it won't have enough tension". Is this true? Because I'm pretty sure I've seen replacement ones on eBay and Amazon, but I don't want to order any if I can't actually put it on.
  4. Hello, I had a lot of fun rebuilding my first pocket watch, a 'Goliath' (see pic). After 2 weeks of working well, the mainspring snapped... I brought a new mainspring from Cousins; I would not find an exact match of the original. The original measured: 3.10 x 0.20 x 620 (mm) Cousins replacement: 3.00 x 0.23 x 640 (mm) Could the differences in specification have caused the breakage? Or was perhaps the spring faulty?
  5. I have a Kronotron Pocket Watch that has stopped running. It probably needs a cleaning. Does anyone know how to remove the back of the watch? Thank you.
  6. Hi Guys, good day, i am David Cybulkiewicz from Colombia, S.A. I sateted to collect and damage watches a while ago, and a coule of months ago started after a lapse to pick up my watches fix them clean them and putting them in order. thnaks for the talk page regards david
  7. I've come across this Ingersoll and am struggling. It is in a backless case - the only access is via the front glass. I have pulled the crown as hard as I am willing and this does not separate. The watch winds, ticks and stops, so I'd like to get a look at the mechanism. Can anyone help? Also, the only Ingersolls I've come-across are Triumphs, this is not so marked. Can anyone help with a model or age? Thank you all!
  8. Hi All I'm new to watch repair, but I have recently found myself becoming fascinated with those extremely ornate (and what looks like totally hand made) old antique verge fusee pocket watches from the late 17th and early 18th centuries. However, I cant really seem to find a good source of detailed info on these watches (online or in book form). There are some more general sources that mention these old antique timepieces, but I cant find any in-depth or definitive info sources. Has any other member looked into this already ? If so - what dd you manage to dig up ? Or any other a
