New to (Hopefully) watch repair

Recommended Posts


I'm just starting out in watch repair, hopefully to be able to maintain my own watches as there are not many repair places left here in Saskatchewan and those that do exist have very long wait times.  I'm also really into vintage watches, especially anything to do with art deco.

To that end I'm trying to repair two watches right now:

  • An A. Schild 341 movement with face labelled PAL (I'll post a picture later, it's in pieces right now)
  • A Pierce 103SC movement (again with the later pictures)

I've found some information on both on Dr. Roland Ranfft's website, but what I'm really interested in is how to service vintage swiss watches (which oils to use).

If anyone has more information on these watches I would very much appreciate it.  So far I've been unable to find service manuals for either.

Welcome Dpastl! I'm sorry I can't help you with the movements you're working on but I'm sure someone else around here can and will. I can recommend watchrepairlessons.com as an excellent way to learn about service, repair and fault finding, and of course picking up stuff here on the site.
