Uncle Larry's Watch Shop Retiring

Recommended Posts

Read the news on his site this evening. I guess health and age are catching up with Larry. Really a shame to lose an excellent resource for all things used in the watch world. Bought many an item from him over the last few years. Loved coming home after work and hanging out on his web page looking at the goldmine of stuff. If you didn't mind a little cleaning from time to time on the occasional item there was always a diamond to be found. He always had an excellent assortment of staking sets and individual stakes to round out ones own set. Was hoping a lathe would come by in the new year...

It was a pleasure doing business with him and I wish him all the best in his much deserved retirement.:)

I bought a load of items from him over the years. He is such a nice guy. Will likely be visiting him next week and say hi.

    • A faceted crystal has ..faces but not a lip. Seiko did not use glue often, and the crystal will not leave by pushing with a thumb. Fortunately, Seiko helps watch repairers by classifying and documenting the case construction, here we have an "A" as stamped on the case back. Attached the guide. A good discussion is at https://www.plus9time.com/seiko-case-back-information BTW, I recommend the OP to use the "Watch Repairs Help & Advice" section when it's repair question like this. One advantage is that there answers can be rated and marked as resolving.   1982.03 Seiko Case Servicing Guide.pdf

    • Hi Jeffie and welcome. With the Seikos you’ll fit right in   Have fun and chat away.
    • Thailand. I thought Mark mentioned Taiwan in one of his videos and perhaps mistook it as a joke. I've not traveled much.  Been in the Rome airport a few times and spent a few weeks in Greece, but never lived anyplace more exotic than Kansas City.  Living in the Ozark hills was culture shock.  You know how far I have to drive to buy anything like decent scotch?  It's a day trip!  I would love to see the U.K.  Give up my artillery and move there?  I don't think so. I suspect Mark is having at us.  I suspect he has made so much money off of us he has moved to a large country estate!
    • Hi, Im a new member and wanted to introduce myself. Ive been collecting watches for about 4 years and just fascinated about the watches themselves, the movements and the history of the brands. I own one of my grail watches as a gift to myself for being with the same company for 25 years. It is the Seiko emperor tuna sbdx014. All my other watches are lower mid tier watches. Mostly Seikos and a few micro brands. Thank you so much and looking so forward to learning from all of you Jeff
