Watch Repair Course

Recommended Posts

Just finished the Level 3 Watch repair course and it was great. Tons of great information and excellent instruction by Mark. Scored well too. Can’t wait for the Level 4 Course just to see it I’m doing it right. Great tips throughout the course as well.dd3b7c5cacb797629e8982081453965f.jpg

Just needed to take some kind of course to see if I was doing things right, based on my library of watch repair books.

Please allow me to add my voice to the chorus of congratulations. Regardless of your motivation, as we say here in Texas, "If you can actually do it, then it ain't bragging to say so". Your posts are always a welcome read.

Thank you Mr. TexasDon. Please check out all the videos I have made on YouTube trying to help folks with watch repair. I am not an old hand at this but I have read most the books and have worked my buns off over the past 6 years trying to get better at this skill. Search under JD Richard it jdrichard01

    • Dial looks original. It should be the Yin to the Yang of the one I posted above. As a bonus, the seller claims it actually works, which is a relative rarity for prospective 404 club members. I think I may swap out the steel strap though.
    • If you look carefully at the actual statement its loose pallet stones etc. It's more of a generalization statement. The graphical display comes from the sounds of the escapement. One side of the escapement produces one line the other side the other line. Then there's a problem with timing machines and liquid crystal displays we can see the pixels. So the upper line is migrating relatively straight across the display moving up one pixel at a time but remaining straight. The lower line looks like it's wandering around both going up and down. It really should look more like the upper line. So anything that affects the escapement affects the sounds shows up on the display. As it looks like only one side then it would be typically one side of the escapement. So loose pallet stone possibly even the roller jewel which would affect both could be damaged and I've even seen a loose roller jewel only show up on one side. Escapement lubrication one stone gets lubricated the other does not look like this along with anything that screws up the escapement dirty escapement etc. So cleaning examining and re-lubricating would be a good idea. Then a watch made in the early 70s isn't exactly a vintage watch it really should look a little better.
    • Could the brass coloured washer be a dial washer? The second part... no idea, how thick is it? Can we see some pictures?
    • Look into Omega pushers. They have the same construction as the Breitling . Not sure which model now so you have to do some research.  
    • I received my Ronda 703 movement today, it had a couple of extra parts with it that I have no clue what they are for. The first is a brass coloured washer  - roughly 2mm outside diameter, 1mm inside diameter and curved. The second is brass coloured plate about 5mm x 1.5mm with an open ended hole at each end. Does anyone have an idea what these are for?
