Hi Folks. Another Newbie!


Recommended Posts

I appreciate being allowed to join this forum. Thank you. I've always had an interest in watches but didn't start collecting until I retired about 15 years ago. Most of them are Seiko's of course but occasionaly treat myself to something more expensive. For the last few years I have started collecting older watches. These generally require some work and I am slowly building up my knowledge and collection of tools. The thrill of the chase for some long obsolete part is definately part of the attraction. I can't imagine being able to do this without the internet! I've just finished rebuilding a Seiko 7A28-7040 with new coils, pusher seals and springs, crystal and gaskets. Am really pleased with the result. The pusher seals were a pain but with the use of a tooth pick and a spring bar tube I managed it. I very much enjoy working out how to do something though sites like this are invaluable. I hope I can assist with my limited knowledge. Best wishes.

PS: Apologies for the naff username but it was the first thing that caught my eye.:)
