I have found out that both clocks are 31 day Jupiter clocks from Korea. Both cases are chipped or the carvings are broken.

I am not sure about all the parts in the three plastic trays. Could be anything and I have no way at the moment of looking at things and knowing what movements they are from.

Sorry. New to this. I was on the page where the stuff was showing, but it looks like the link takes you to the top of the group. If you scroll down in Geelong Online Garage Sales, you might see it. I will also try to download the pictures and post them.

I asked whether any of the watch or clock parts were identified or marked etc and never got an answer. Didn't go any further with it all. I think it was $80 for the lot which maybe got two clocks which could have been used as learning and practice and maybe some watches for everyday use, but I am pretty sure that just about everything in the plastic containers could pretty safely be classified as junk.

Sorry I missed this. Those clocks wouldn't be good to start to learn on very poor modern movements. I can tell because of the way the arrows are pointing, you wind these up the other way to who you would normally wind a clock. You are right about the plastic boxes. As for the watches I don't think you have missed anything. You have done well in saving your money.

@oldhippy The question that I referred to in my previous post was to the seller. That is who did not reply. I wasn't about to just fork out money without having any real idea as to what I might be getting.

I will just have to keep working on the clocks I have for now and keep looking.

    • I am a student and am completely new to watch repair, however have been interested in watches and animatronics most of my life. I would like to start doing watch repair as a hobby and am currently learning the fundamentals. I have many questions and hope to learn a lot from this forum.
    • Hello everyone,   For awhile now I have been working on and designing my own watches. I am getting closer to having all the parts made for me and have started to think about assembly.   I have been working on watches for a number of years now and I always thought little about the process of casing the watch up. It was just the final step. However now that I will be hopefully assembling a lot more watches I have begun to think more about the process and the tools that could make this process easier and ensure I have a professional final product.  Some of the tools I have considered buying,  - A vacuum tool for cleaning the inside of the case  - A hand press for fitting hands   - Plier style spring bar tool  - Stem Cutter    -Wooden tipped tweezers (handling the hands)  I already own a case press and a variety of other tools. Does any one want to give me some thoughts about these tools or what you might recommend? The goal is to speed up assembly, assure no dust gets in the case and not mark up any components during assembly. I plan on spending around 3000 pounds. ($5000 CAD dollars)   Cheers,  Liam Branch 
    • So, the more you guys tweak the more entropy that results.  You are killing us.  Worse than AGW!! Interesting article a must read for horologists!
    • I'm afraid I don't have the experience or knowledge to help you with your questions, but I was thinking that the new part might fit. I would suggest that you could give it a try. Just be gentle and observant and I really don't think there's any risk for any damage to the movement or the part. Worst case scenario, it doesn't fit and no harm has been done.
