Classifieds - For Sale / Wanted Section??


Recommended Posts

Good Morning Mods!

I was wondering whether there was any appetite for a Classifieds section where members could offer items for sale and / or post wanted ads?

I am a member on another (Hi-Fi) forum where this works quite well, it has no direct association with the forum and items are offered for sale at the individuals risk.

There is also a "spirit of" section where members offer items for free or usually stipulate that a donation to charity is made. 

The actual sale logistics i.e. payment / shipping is agreed via direct message between interetsed parties.

This has been asked and discussed before, since the very first day the decision was not to have that - and I can tell you in full confidence that will not change now.

It was decided that this forum will not go down the path of advertising. You can however if someone is asking for something use the message service on here, but no blatant adverts.

Thanks. Makes sense, just because it works for one doesn't mean it works for all.

Is there a specific thread for the "pass it on" section mentioned in the thread posted above?

There is no section as such. If one needs help about a part can post in the repair section. Still, the idea is that this forum will not promote members acting for profit or personal benefit.

    • Thanks watchweasol that's fantastic. I've had a quick scan through, it's always good to have a manual. You don't happen to have the 104 manual it refers to for cleaning? Off now to read and digest, thanks again.
    • As I indicated above I did email the best pictures that I could see of all the pictures and I'm pasting the answer below. To really go beyond we need better pictures. Then the definition a better pictures is the impossible picture? There's a reference to the roller table which is totally invisible at all these pictures. In the early days of lever escapement's there are lots of variations of things. So the roller table located underneath everything engaging with the lever might have something clever. If your watchmaker with a loop it's easy enough to look in. Photographing that would be quite a challenge unless you knew exactly what you're doing. Then attempting to remove the balance wheel would not recommend unless you have experience with watches of this type. As because removing the balance bridge does not allow you to remove the balance wheel without underpinning the hairspring. Typically the hairsprings are pinned to the main plate. You will notice the reference to conversion to lever escapement. As technology changed the early movements would transition into newer movements. So basically they will take their older movements and start to add bits and pieces of newer technology on to them rather than making an entirely new watches.     As for the fusee, I really can't make out any details about the escapement from those poor photos. It looks like a standard lever escapement but it has a verge style balance cock. The case marks look like London, 1830. This would be way too early for a standard lever escapement. Perhaps it started out its life as a verge and was converted to a lever at a later date. I'm pretty sure that the signature is James McCabe - a well known and collectible watchmaker. It would be interesting to see more details of the roller table. This could, for example, be a Massey lever. Better pictures would help.
    • Thank you aac58😊👍🏻
    • Hi    according to the list its a 108   manufactured in 78.  manual attached.      cheers 108 (2).pdf
    • Thanks watchweasol. I've had another look and it says the following at the bottom of the dial: Great Britain "46562 10878" JerseyMo, the plucky little watch isn't done yet. The auto-winding is definitely working. I've been checking in on it periodically and giving it a shake. It's ticking away as it should and the date advances, even if it's running about 12-15 mins slow over roughly a 12 hour period. I've warmed to it for sure. The bean counters can't mark this one off their spreadsheet just yet. Hello again Poljot. Is the "sophisticated" click just a piece of bent metal engaging the teeth? I think I'll have to investigate further and report back, after I've cleaned the DNA and grime from around the case back before I open it!
