One of my faves

Recommended Posts

Along with my grandfather's Timex, this Waltham (provided by my loving wife and daughter) holds a special and life changing place in my heart.  Hopefully I am only one in a long line of the custodians (including my grandson) to care for these special pieces, as well as, the rest of my collection.  He sits on my lap and asks "You fixen bem Pop?" I told him if I don't get to some he can get to them for me.  I hope he does.

Thats awesome. I never really got into the pocket watch but I can totally see the attraction. I think thee is so much more out there in terms of the pocket watch. Esp older stuff. They are probably easier to work on as well. Maybe......I totally need another hobby.

Until recently, some models of cell phones had IR emitters and could be used as remote controls. Was a great way to mess with people.

    • So perhaps Moebius 9501 or Moebius 9504 grease?
    • We had another member recently looking for reassurance about using Seiko lubricants, but no amount of good reasoning prevented him from spending on that. Probably caused by blind faith in written material over relying on other's experience when it comes to a question asked many times on this forum alone. I use 8301 there. A bit messy and natural based, still better than leaving it dry like the factory does.
    • I don't think you can really pump in oil in there since the air trapped in prevents that. And any oil left on the flat facing the balance is count productive. So the fine applicator is used to push some oil in the hole.  That is my understanding at least.
    • Rub-in jewels have integrated end stone, out of obsession I am always concerned if I have managed to get enough oil on its end stone, automatic oiler seem assuring to have dispensed that certain amount of oil there,  one can double the amount by pumping twice and the exactness of the amount is a nice control to have. In a sense, same story with screw on end stones, you can just screw the end stone on and then oil. Much neater outcome since end stone plate/ holder is sure to move when you try to place it on and oil gets spread around by the old method.  I use old accupuncture needles as oiler.    
    • I wouldn't follow the Seiko guide too closely. There's the obviously questionable suggestion that you oil the pallet pivots, and there's the use of "S-6" in parts of the train. That's a grease, and I know of no other manufacturer that call for the use of grease in any part of the train in any caliber this size. I would improvise and use HP1300 there like any other automatic device. I would however use some grease on pawl and ratchet teeth on the second reduction wheel. I can see that wearing down over time without a heavier lubricant.
