Great clock repair videos by James Martin

Recommended Posts

After having watched „thousands“ of watch repair videos I stumbled into the chanel of clock maker James Martin by accident. Meanwhile I frequently enjoy the fine quality of these videos as well as the insight into the more „macroscopic“ world of clock making.

He tells you what work needs to be. undertaken. Not impressed with videos about clock repairs when they don't show all the work. 

Watch some more of his videos and you will see his excellent craftmanship in detail.

Hi @oldhippy, just watch this video from Scottie. I can't believe you recommended one of his videos to a newbie recently. I don't know if Scottie is a hobbyist or professional but I'm not sending any of my clocks to him.

I've watch quite a few of James' videos and have learnt a lot.

    • Hi, the cylinder is broken and I want to try to fix it. I don't have any specific tools, so how can I solve the problem? A new plataform or just the movement/pinion?
    • Personally i like to collect old iconic watches, so many made famous by films etc. Or unusual designs.That doesn't especially make them a great watch just a theme of collecting. You've mentioned the Willard, how about a genuine A 11 military watch.  Another iconic Seiko would be the Pogue space watch.  A Citizen bullhead ?.  A grand might even get you a Dirty Dozen, i dont know the availability of these in the US though, an A 11 is more appropriate for your country. Pre Swatch Omega Tissot or Longines , like Richard I'm not a fan of Swatch.
    • Sorry to repeat my question @316lad, but I'm really curious if you could elaborate on why you describe the movement as "a bit of rubbish". My main interest in watches is precisely their movements and so far I have a somewhat limited experience of the ETA movements and that is why I am so curious.  Thanks! 👍
    • Come on members please keep it friendly.  We all try to help. Just think before you start typing.  For what its worth I still say it is a fake the engraving on the back of the case is very amateurish a single word has different size lettering.  
    • Looked up images of natural scenery of quetico park on internet, beautyyyful indeed, I guess no space left for spiders as the place must be crowded with tourists. LWS, we expect to see bigger catch on your future visits.
