Hi all,  My name is Andrew and live on Anglesey in North Wales, I have been interested in watches for quite  some time but only now have I had the time to enjoy the hobby. I started off by stripping my old SKX,and managed to get it back together and working, what a buzz. Other than watches I’m also into flying and diving.

best regards to everyone,Andrew

Congratulations on your first success and welcome to the forum. You can learn a lot as a beginner here. Don't be afraid to ask (if you can't find what you need using the search function). I have had nothing but positive responses to my questions, which isn't something you can say about many forms.

    • Dear all, I recently had the pleasure of finding a damaged hairspring needing care. My first! It’s an inexpensive orient watch, gaining 20 minutes a day. I am taking Mark’s fault finding course, and have other inexpensive hairsprings to practise with. I also got some vintage tools I’d love to use. Until now for me levellers were only the Oliver Cromwell people, but ebay never ceases to surprise... I could pass the first stages of correcting the coil, with two tweezers. But could not find a use for the vintage tools. Could you help me to figure it out?  Picture 1 is the bent hairspring  picture 2 and 3 the box of tas levellers picture 4 is the hairspring suffering under my tweezers now picture 5 shows the tip of the tools picture 6: from De Carle. Would this be the purpose of the levellers? The overcoil? 
    • my first running watch was an Wyler squire.  i wore the case out,  the mvt. would fall out at work.  i still have it and another with a similar case.   vin
    • First watch was a Kered    from Shepherds of the shambles in York, alas no longer in business. The plus side is I still have the watch it was a 21st birthday pressie, and even better it still ticks  54 years later although the dial has a water mark ,    I even wore it playing cricket for 12 years.
