Just when you think you have free afternoon this batch arrived from eBay approx 400 crystals various sizes,flat, low domed & high domed. For £21 inc postage good value although I bet when required I still do not have the size required😊

Isn't that always the way things go?

Last week I noticed that the crystal on my 45 year-old dial caliper was broken (and it wasn't a month ago). I had them out while fiddling with watches. While taking photos I've knocked things over. So I ordered a replacement and a crystal press and when they arrived the supposed correct crystal was a good 2mm too large. Mitutoyo says they no longer stock parts for these so it will end up being aftermarket but I can't believe they changed the size of the dial crystals. In fact I'd bet they source them from another vendor.

    • Y’all get the Elton John watches you wanted today? 😂 Sir Elton is gonna be rich…
    • Hello guys, i am at a bit of a loss to know where i might find the screws pictured. I understand from Citizen that they are now discontinued. I have considered buying a small lathe to try to make some but as a novice I am uncertain what to even look for. Could someone please tell me if I have not followed protocol correctly as I haven't received a single response. The last couple of years has been a bit tough due to cancer and the last 2 weeks with COVID. Please let me know correct steps for posting so I might learn for future reference. my kindest regards, Rob
    • If you live in the UK then you can take the exams at Upton Hall at BHI head quarters in Nottinghamshire UK.  Since I live in the US, I found an invigilator in my town, approved by the BHI exams supervisor, to manage my exams here locally.  My invigilator will receive the exam material and provide it to me at the appropriate day for the designated amount of time I have to perform the test.   In the higher level courses there are some that you must take at Upton Hall in person (D9, D11, D16, D18 and D20). You can find more information here   https://bhi.co.uk/training-education/examinations/    I still have to decide what level I want to achieve, but know my understanding of horology has greatly improved by the material I have covered thus far in this course.  
    • Yes. I understand (now). I regret to say that I am servicing watches without fulling understanding the cannon pinion function in relation with setting the time  (and many other theory aspects of the orology!!!). If is too tight the hands won't move and on the contrary. If the pallet fork is not installed the train of wheels will spin freely and if the remontoir is on the setting position the motion wheels will also move. I will use HP 1300 for the cannon pinion setting. I am happy and grateful and of course I will report back as soon as I can. Thanks
