Saying hello to all!

Recommended Posts

Hi to all of you!

Finally, after following this forum with great interest for some months, I found that now I'm overdue to say hallo to you.


I am an hobbyist just starting tinkering with watches - more than clocks 

... and doing my best to keep the disasters small (with more or less success...).


After looking around the net a little bit, I am really pleased I could join this forum, at which I have the impression, that members are polite and really try to help each other.

Since I am just starting, I assume there will be more benefit for me instead of will I be able to give back to the community, but I promise to work hard on this...


Working as an IT guy, it's a great pleasure for me to do manual work in the evening.


I'm looking forward to having interesting conversations on many exciting topics here

    • Ok, so in your opinion the downside which I overlooked is excessive weight (for watchmaking, at least) and loss of close tactile feel present in a in mini driver. Makes sense.
    • Welcome Fitz you are reaching the point of no return.
    • Hi  Check the gong hammer assembly is free,  lift each individual hammer and check that it drops smartly not in slow motion,  It they are sticky dfismantle and free off.    Remove the floating balance unit and clean in Alchohol or the like,  There is a good explanation on the floating balance on the net by Howard Millar.   I will have a look in the Hermle Manual regarding your mode.  l do like Hermle clocks very well made.  Then Proceed as explained by Old Hippy,  sound advise as always.

    • So, finally, the trigger has been pulled! After many considerations, I decided to order a brand new Bergeon 5500. You can see it here. Shipping included I paid £128/€144/$162. Not a bargain, but reasonable, I guess. I saw some definitive advantages: * Well tested professional tool. Meaning there's a good chance it will work and work well. * I can shop individual Bergeon dies for various needs as I go (silly expensive, as always), or shop a good quality Aliexpress set. * Shipping within Europe so it should be here within a couple of weeks rather than a couple of months (China). * Seller has 99.9% positive feedback ("Top-rated seller/eBay Money Back Guarantee). I'll let you know what I think when I've tried it! Finally, a big thank you to all of you sharing your experience, knowledge, and opinions in this thread! This is what makes WRT such a great place to be.
