Hello everyone! I am Santiago and this is the first time for me in a forum. I have always loved watches but since I found an spanish-language facebook group on vintage wristwaches the past year I´ve started to become obsessed with them. They are fascinating.
I came across this forum through the Watch Repair Channel on youtube. I have been searching for a watchmaking school here in Argentina and I couldn´t find any but a couple of places where they give "watch repair" courses. However, I am really interested and until I start attending any of those, I decided to go all by my self in the learning. I´ve been watching youtube videos, reading blogs, and I am even currently reading the Donald De Carle book on watch repairing.
I hope you can all teach me and gide me in the learning process.
I am really happy that I found this forum!
My best wishes to all of you!
Just a quick g'day to you all . Been collecting Timex watches on and off for years then unfortunately other interests got in the way and I slowed down/stopped playing around/destroying old Timex watches that I have collected BUT it seems I have regained the bug. I have started to get back into trying to get some of my Timex plus other mechanicals working again and whilst looking for some information on a Timex watch i stumbled across this forum
I am sure I will be posting on a regular basis
Thats a poser, what I had fitted to the bench at on time was a four in line which used halogen bulbs the same thing uses LEDs now and fitting that up with some 2by1 and made colapsible so that it folds up. the multiple light array should go some way to removing the shadows as the lights strike at different angles, if it has a decent base a G clamp will fix it to the table/bench, food for thought.
