Hello from Seattle, WA

Recommended Posts

Hello all - my name is Matt, I’m a new hobbyist from the Pacific Northwest. I got into working on watches because I wanted to relume a 1940’s Wittnauer. Funnily enough, I haven’t gotten around to that original project yet. 

My first serious project has been restoring a Clebar Big Eyes Chrono from the 70’s. I got it for $20 in non-working condition, some rust, missing a pusher, and a cracked crystal. I’ve since cleaned the movement, replaced a couple rusted parts, replaced the pushers, new crystal, and new gaskets all around. I did relume the dial and hands (with Noctilumina).  Waiting on a BoR bracelet to complete the project. 

My current project is restoring a 17j Tudor ETA 2784 and building a watch around it. Might be a long term project as I assemble the parts but that’s okay. 

Look forward to the community here!
