Hi everyone!

First of all, a big thanks to Watch Repair Talk for creating this great platform for watch enthusiasm like me to participate in discussions and thoughts sharing of watch related topics.

Since I’m a newbie here and I have much to learn from all the expertise here. I feel I should write an introduction of myself as my first post in this forum. I’m a humble Malaysian working as a watch dealer and watchmaker / horologist for my partnership business.

I started my career life 10 years ago. Back then, I worked in one of biggest watch retailer in Malaysia, Watta Time as a logistic officer. Then, I was transferred from logistic department to service department. There, I got the opportunities to learn all the skills of repairing, refining and recon old watches from middle end to high end. I honed my skills in the company under proper guidance from all the Gurus in Watta Time for more than 5 years.

In year 2012, I quit my job and started own business with my partner. Throughout the years of efforts, our business is growing day by day. The watches in our shop are ranged from moderate to high end, including genuine SWISS Made such as Fossil, Casio, Tissot, Alpina and etc

Our shop also provide watch servicing such as replacing battery, watch band or bracelet, altering watch bracelet or band to fit their wrist size perfectly, installing missing parts, replacing mechanism, refurbished / renew the outlook of your watches etc.

To make our customer convenient, we've now set up our marketing online store and Facebook business page to deliver news letter regarding our latest products and ongoing promotion as well as taking order from customers. 

We’re striven to improve and upgrade ourselves so that we can provide the best service for every citizen who come to us. I sincerely hope that all the members here will be able to help and scaffold me and my team to do better in watch industry.

Thanks for reading. Have a nice day.

Welcome, it seems you are not a newbie at all with your experience...but in my days, Casio and Fossil is neither mid or highgrade nor Swiss made....Fossil is an American brand and Casio Japanese....

Hi Watchtime, 
Thanks for reading my post. Yes, they're both aren't SWISS Made. Sorry I was just trying to list out some example of the stocks that I'm keeping in my shop. Sorry for the misleading content. :(
Yes, they were not so popular during old days but they quite famous in Malaysia nowadays. 
Thanks for your comment. Like I mentioned earlier, I still have much to learn from all the mentors here. Thank you ;)

    • I have a nice big concrete block outside. I feel like taking this POS, putting it on that block  and pounding the shit out of it until its a nice homogeneous, flat piece of metal.
    • What the problem here is for your question is Mark's video is confusing. Normally when you do a balance staff you would statically poise first then sometimes dynamically poise. If your dynamic poising you use eight pendant positions usually. So in his video he comments for this particular watch he is dynamic poising. Then adjusting to positions is an interesting term or as your question is which positions should you worry about timekeeping in? Basically what you're doing by timing the watch on the timing machine in a variety of positions is your verifying the watch does keep time in those positions.  So for pocket watches dial up and crown up are the most common. For wristwatches I'm attaching what Omega recommends for their watches
    • check each as old hippy said but end shakes on a 3rd wheel allow a lot more play than lets say a balance or escape. you can get away with too much end shake and not loose much amplitude, too little will def not work though and will def result in a very low amp and or stop the movement. train wheels being loose is always better than too tight in my opinion
    • its farfo.com dont put the www. or just google farfo vintage watches ridgewood nj. archer is a memeber on teh Watchuseek forums and is very good esp when it comes to high end watches like omega. he is a certified omega repairer, not many of those around. he uses the same equipment they uses at the omega facilities. 100,000s worth of equipment
