Hi, I'm Chris (Chibby)

Recommended Posts


I am new to this forum although I have read various threads in the past.

I have been learning to repair watches, pocket watches & clocks for a few years now & its fascinating. Really wish i made a career change when i was younger 🙂

I love the challenges it brings and makes me discover, learn & often improvise when i don't have the tools yet 

I live in a narrowboat on the Oxford Canal (UK) where power & space are precious. I dont have a massive setup & work off the dining room table. Tinkering with clocks & watches on the cut is so peaceful, but often challenging.

Take care all,

Hey Chris I'm also new here, like you I also love the challenge that watchmaking brings. Does the boat move? I feel like that would add an extra dimension to the process. Level up bouncy watchmaking unlocked lol   

Hello from an English man in Prague.  

All the best

I'm picturing all of your parts rolling around and off your table, as well as the lights swaying back and forth over head as the boat gently rocks.  I hope it's not that RELAXING!!

I'm sure it is not as bad as my initial mental image.

Welcome aboard.
