Hi,

       I'm Mark and live in Leeds, West Yorkshire.  I've been interested in watches for a few years.  I have a few nice, new(-ish) watches - a longines hydroconquest, a rolex and an omega speedmaster.  My main interest is vintage watches though - particularly British made watches.  So I have a few Smiths watches (Astrals, Empires, a couple of Deluxes and a W10 army watch) along with a few Services, Newmark,  Westclox (Scotland) and Timex (Dundee) watches.  I also have a number of random e-bay purchases from Oris, Poljot and others.  I am very much a beginner, but have had some success repairing watches.  I'm looking forward to learning lots on this forum!

    • Thanks for the info. The Rodeo is remarkably similar to this. https://www.uhrwerksarchiv.de/movements/c/crc/crc-960/ .. but perhaps is closer to this. https://17jewels.info/movements/c/crc/crc-860/   It has the cruder balance, but a different "shock" spring arrangement as opposed to what looks suspiciously like glue on the example here.  The "LiJac" is certainly from the same stable, but even simpler in its construction.
    • Well I won't try until I've sorted all the other problems out. If its too difficult I might try making a tool or perhaps purchasing the chinese version. Thanks for your assistance .
    • That's what I was saying. That ring holds the bearing to the rotor. Try putting that ring back. I think you'll find it very difficult.
    • Hi all, was just wondering what was the very first proper watch other forum members ever owned? In my case it was a Nidor Vibraflex 17 jewel manual wind, that my nan bought me in 1966. Hopefully one will pop up on eBay as I have lost the original ! 
    • I usually get to tinker with it later on when it’s dark. I just bought two 15W cool light - light bulbs for the room, it helps a little but it’s not great, it’s too high in the ceiling. Ideally I could do with something behind me (from the side) and fairly close to cancel the shadows but having a floor lamp would be very awkward. Ideally I’d like something I could put on the desk, sort of a spot light that’s powerful and I could move about and direct the light where I need it.
