Hi everyone,

This is something I always wanted to get into and my Seiko 7016-8001 chronograph just stopping (among a raft of other issues) has only made me want to do this even more. I won't be starting with my watch. It will be going to a repairer in NSW who I have spoken to who has told me that he can do it. The repairers that the watch was sent to via the only shop that we have near where I live have not even opened the watch. Even Seiko who I called said no after I told them the calibre(?) number from the caseback. Both have just simply said 'Cannot be repaired.' Not the right thing to say to someone like myself who has rebuilt all sorts of things in my life.

I am not sure if I want to start collecting watches or clocks, but who knows where this will lead?

I am 57, oops 58 now. Is that too late to be looking at picking up a hobby such as this? I have been scouring the internet looking at things, videos and have ended up here.

Mark looks to be incredibly accomplished. I have also been perusing his courses as trying to work out which tools to consider/not consider is all a bit overwhelming so no doubt his courses make those suggestions as they go.

Anyway, hope to learn things.
