Thank you for your replies and from Mark you made my day by even taking time out to look at my post, The watch is keeping good time and I have a few people asking about it, I can tell them very little about the make as I don't know a lot about it, but I am sure that are getting a little sick of hearing me going on about how long and hard I worked in getting it to work again.  But I am so very proud in getting this watch taken apart getting the spair movement parts and putting it back together again.

Considering that I only took up the hobby of watch repair in January 2014, and bought books and joined this forum I think I have come a long way, but I don't wish to brag, (Well I do a bit) but have a feeling of achievement and can see now what you guys have in common and enjoyment.  I only wish I could have your experience and talent.


Thanks Very much for your support.

      Hello everybody,

      I open this thread to archive works on Citizen 8110A Bullhead. I purchased this watch in poor condition as You can see on the photos.

      Cause I have serviced few chronographs in the past I decide to try restore this watch. Maybe is not ractional from the economical aspect but we do this because we love it So let's open it.

      Hands are in good condition (required repaint and relume) but the dial has broken legs and tachy scale is faded :/ I think it's really hard to find orginal and there is no gold aftermarket replacement - sad. Look at the movement.

      Gosh, what a dirty place It needs good cleaning and oiling. 
      But the biggest problems are this.

      Broken post on main spring bridge and missing rocking bar core and screw in gear train. I need to find replacement.

      While I'll be working on movement the case and pushers are send to renew - putting new gold plated coat


      Stay tuned

      Hi all, I'm new here, but have been watching the videos on YouTube for a while now, and used them to educate myself on the nature of mechanical watches. Thanks for the great videos Mark! You helped take the mystery and fear out of these works of art.

      I have a Rotary Monza I am fixing up. I disassembled the barrel and removed and cleaned the mainspring. I secured a copy of the parts list and it shows that as well as the mainspring, there is also a Brake Spring (part 775 on the picture). What is it, and do I really need it? Certainly Cousins does not sell it. I googled AS 1902 brake spring and ONE result came up of a Russian watch forum discussing this item. Apparently it is thicker than a normal spring and it seems to have some sort of bent over feature on it. Can I just make one using the old mainspring? If so, how long should it be? Is it really necessary?

      I am now working on a vintage "trench watch" movement from 1910s that I mentioned before with a question regarding identification of the movement.
      (I still haven't got the exact ref. of the movement.)
      As I was disassembling the movement, my screwdriver slipped and broke one of the parts that function as a spring for the click.
      I tried looking for replacement but I am not sure what I should look for.
      Also, one of the jewels on the  wheel bridge is broken so I need a jewel as well. 
      Could anyone advice me on how to find the correct part for click spring and the jewel for the wheel bridge??
      **Could the click spring be put back together??
      Thanks. You are always of great help.

    • Do you have a watch collection? If so what have you got? Just got myself a half hunter Fusee to restore. It ticks but not for long.    
    • I guess its the rarity value also. Roger doesn't make many watches 10 a year I think between him and his apprentice. Still rather have a RS watch than a Rolex any day irrespective of price. I would like to know why Roger picked the Isle of Mann to manufacture his watches and not London.
    • Indeed.  That's the one.  They were an unlikely pair, I must say.  For both of them I admire the fact that it's not just about keeping time, but keeping time with elegance.  Having said that, I knew their watches would be expensive  but had no idea just how expensive.  Yikes!  :-)
    • A friend of mine has this Omega watch which belonged to her aunt.  On the back of the case is the engraving, "1947-1972 Presented to <aunt's name> by <company name>." And also "14K gold."  There's 2 small diamonds on the front. The watch has been in a drawer for 10 years, but winds up and appears to work fine.  Any ideas what the value on this might be?  I'm guessing just sentimental value, but who knows.
