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

      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 been serviced! I was hooked and began my own mechanical watch journey. I'm looking forward to learning more from this wonderful community.

      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 I was in my 20s, this is my first hobby ever. I recently won a bid on eBay of some poor soul's tools left behind and I have three that I have no real idea what they are. I thought it might be fun to upload a photo and see if you guys could help a noob out. If anyone wants to see more or closer shots, just let me know. Thanks

      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.

    • Hi all Just a quick g'day to you all . Been collecting Timex watches on and off for years then unfortunately other interests got in the way and I slowed down/stopped playing around/destroying old Timex watches that I have collected BUT it seems I have regained the bug.  I have started to get back into trying to get some of my Timex plus other mechanicals working again and whilst looking for some information on a Timex watch i stumbled across this forum   I am sure I will be posting on a regular basis Cam
    • are we talking about round wylers?  the special crystols are hard to find. there were several colors.     vin
    • I'm going to have to do something. One decent desk lamp and bulbs high up in the ceiling are not enough for me.
    • You are most welcome.
    • Thats  a poser,  what I had fitted to the bench at on time was a four in line which used halogen bulbs the same thing uses LEDs now and fitting that up with some 2by1 and made colapsible so that it folds up. the multiple light array should go some way to removing the shadows as the lights strike at different angles,  if it has a decent base a G clamp will fix it to the table/bench, food for  thought.
