Just a heads up everybody.


It seems my hosting company (based in Canada) for my server has gotten themselves a presence in the EU and wants to pump 20% VAT onto my bill. I have had a server with them for about 4 years now and they have been a good service provider but from a financial point of view I can get a better deal elsewhere so I need to move the site. 


I will start planning now and will keep the downtime to an absolute minimum. 


I will keep this thread updated as I go along - hit the follow button if you want email updates.

I have access to the new VPS and I must say, the speed is much better than the current server. Hope it stays that way. I have a few websites, I will transfer them over the next few days.

Weird! Guests now can post too?


Not any more - thanks for letting us know :)



1and1 if the vps is not up to scratch... 



Knownhost would be my second choice, they are a brilliant host. I went with UK2 because the VPS's are on SSD and I wanted to try that - so far i'm impressed.

I'm going to do the migration at 3pm.


To reduce problems with the database I will close the forum for the duration of the migration.


Hopefully will only take about 30 minutes.

    • I remembered where I saw the photograph this will give you a clue. As you can see it's not the conventional pocket watch sleeve in that it does not screw in.  
    • Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum.
    • I guess you have attempted to instal the escape wheel when center arbour+ the bridge on it+ balance& cock+ fork cock are installed, before these are installed, you have good access to escape wheel to slide its pivot in, then tighten screws on the large plate/ bridge, next add the said parts on. Obviously modified escape cock ( split ) must have been thought of after tons of complaimts at assembly line.
    • Good day! i have choice to buy this legendary watch in exactly my favorite condition: 1.) unserviced  2.) untested  I wouldn’t mind there is no evidence if barometric module works, but what I mind is, I can’t find any technical information of how this module looks and works.  I like to get challenging new movements and also don’t want to crops the line of spoiling something.  Does any of you, kind souls have any literature or link or photo or even oil painting of this module? The watch is referred as 53223. Cheers! Jakub 
    • We haven't or at least I haven't entirely forgotten? The problem is I've seen this somewhere? We've discussed sleeves before I don't know if we covered ones for wristwatches probably have but I've seen one of these before I just need to remember where the reference was that I saw it once I remember I can find that and I'll attach it. Then the reason why we not getting copious quantity of answers is because if you notice anything related to American watches in particular earlier watches especially anything involved with casing and sleeves there aren't that many people on this group that work with those. Plus I was hoping for a better name inside the case. Because of you go to an offbrand it's going make it a lot harder and getting a sleeve to replace that anyway is going to be much much harder so as soon as I can remember where I saw the reference to this?
