  1. hi everyone, today I was working on a watch (the movement was eb8810) and after I was happy with the result I put the movement under a. glass, come back to it 2-3 hours later, still ticking so I put it back in the watch case and after about 15 seconds it stoped ticking as I started to move it around I don't know where to go from here wether or not it needs re-oiling or a new part in the balance operation, this is not the first watch I have experienced this in and didn't end up doing anything with the other watch. thanks in advance, Ali p.s I am looking for an eb8800 moveme
  2. I am considering selling leather watch straps, but I have a question before I blindly go ahead and produce a bunch of them. I am wondering if anybody who has worked in the industry for a while can tell me what the most common sizes are of strap pins or lug widths? I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance. Anthony
  3. 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 l
  4. Hello to all of you out there! So, the moderator asked me to do some intros to myself. Here they are. I'm just getting properly into watch repairs and slowly building my kit and various bags of to-be-fixed watches. So far, I'm sticking to quartz watches. Actually I have a few books on repairing mechanical watches, but it is scary stuff! Maybe I just need to explore more. I'm certainly NOT a pro, but a home-repairing amateur. I have fixed quite a few already, but also killed some watches in the process. Hey, that's part of learning - right? So, I guess that's all f
  5. Dear fellow watch enthusiasts, Here we have a senior patient whose only ailment is a broken centre wheel pinion (two of its ten leaves are missing). Please have a look by yourselves. The watch is a 1890s Straight Line 15 Ruby Lever Winder ('Ligne Droite Remontoir Ancre 15 Rubis') with a very large 24 ligne (54 mm) movement. The dial maker's ('Widmer') is the only maker's mark, concealed on the dial's back. My theory is that the damage to the pinion was caused by the sudden release of the barrel. A broken mainspring was lodged inside with unusual thickness and length (

  7. Dear friends, This small centenary pocket watch of my collection came to me without a crown as you can see. This is a pity, since the mainspring and balance test as working and everything else seems to be in good condition. The stem sits correctly inside the sleeve and can be adjusted to two positions (winding/time setting). I have taken some measurements in case any one has a spare crown of the correct size: Crown (base): 4.6 mm. Sleeve (outer diameter): 3.36 mm. Stem (length): 9.44 mm. Thread (length): 1.72 mm. Thread (width): 1.14 mm. Square end: 0.99 mm. Thi
  8. Following a string of missteps that costed the integrity of an antique watch, as documented in our forum, and after taking some time to re-consider my future as a horologist, I decided to go back to the 'workshop' with a clear intention to right my wrongs. The subject that lies on my table is an 1890s Swiss ébauche which cannot run its full length and stops after a few hours from winding. Fig. 1. Dial view. Fig. 2. Rear view. The setting was not smooth to start with as the hands were missing some turns of the stem. So I removed the dial to inspect the minute and h
  9. Hi Watch Repair Talk Community, I am really glad to have found this website as it provides highly valuable information about watches and timepieces. I kindly would like to get some buying decision advice from you which is why I am here. I have decided to get a new watch search and possibly buy a new watch. This potentially will be my only watch. I always had quartz watches. These quartz have never let me down. If one stops working, I just have the battery replaced and it carries on working well. But as these watch are quite reliable and robust, they seem to lack the "soul" of f
  10. I introduced myself in the lounge yesterday. I have a cheap Geneva pocket watch. autowind says it looks to be a cheaper swiss watch. WatchRepairGuy, do you have any video on how to put one back together? I'm posting pics of the one I have.
