Mark from Toronto

Recommended Posts

Hi. I’m Mark from Toronto. I have always loved watches though it recently occurred to me that I didn’t know how they actually worked (besides the fact that you would a spring that powered a lot of wheels which somehow kept time). 
While looking for answers on the net I came across sites and videos about watchmaking and maintenance. Well, one thing led to another and before I knew it I had bough tweezers, screwdrivers, and a bunch of other stuff (it keeps accumulating!) and have been learning to work with my first movement. No idea where it will take me or how far I’ll go, but I wake up every morning excited to get to my work bench and learn new stuff.

Thanks for the welcomes. And apologies in advance if I pepper the forum with dumb questions. I am slowly figuring out this new hobby on my own. Each day brings new wins - and a whole lot of new questions!
