The movement collection is growing

Recommended Posts

Cheers Jim I do appreciate it when you knowledgeable guys give positive comments it makes it all worth it. I’ve got masses to learn but at the moment my mind is like an empty sponge soaking up loads of info. I’ve signed up to the watc repair course on here and still sorting out the BHI course but I’m learning. And I have to say enjoying every moment.

I’m on my local sellers group and always keep an eye on things that come up cheap. This weekend I collected from a house clearance three non-working clocks. Two are mechanical one a quartz.

i started on this one first and after taking the case apart giving that a good clean, resetting the hands which were loose and cleaning up the battery contacts it’s like a good-un

The other two are 8 day Schatz. Both have problems and missing parts. Hands and domes need ordering and both need a good clean.one is a 59 movement with a dodgy hairspring the other is a pendulum based movement. Both are lovely looking pieces. All for £25 so not bad

The Steiger is a heavy lump made out of solid brass plates. Keeping good time and silent so keeps the wife happy.
