I thought that would probably be the case. I’m just disappointed the jewelling tool and the staking tool are so expensive. If I buy a watch and it needs a jewell replaced, I’m buggered. Until I know I can actually repair watches, spending £300- £500 on tools is a hell of an investment for me. Enthusiasm only goes so far doesn’t it? I mean I used to be an enthusiastic footballer before my back injury, but I was never good enough to play in the premier league!!!
Not sure what to do about this .....
I also found a 1919 elgin 16s pocket watch not working. going to look to make sure it's complete before I start on it. Gonna wait on the Waltham since I need more experience on jewel replacement and balance staff replacement.
Hello - i'm Elliott - I recently obtained a large number of old British car clocks, none of which work right now. I would like to get some advice on getting them running again. I'll post something in the main section!
Thanks for letting me join the forum!
