I have a few watch tools and have been messing around with old vintage American pocket watches. I have gotten to a point that I feel comfortable takeing them completely apart and cleaning and reassembling them. Oil and also replace crystals as needed. I have also gotten into buying old Timex and trying to refurbish them.

Hi Ed! Welcome to the forum.

Show us some of the pieces you've worked on. I managed to trash an Elgin 313 balance. I have an Elgin 409 that I haven't taken apart yet. I also have assorted pieces for other Elgins. Since they were at one time the largest watch works in the world, I suspect I'll probably run into others eventually.
