This Is What I Had To Sell To Buy All My Watch Tools!


Recommended Posts

When I found out we would be relocating to the East Coast and that I would have to quit my job, I knew I had to do something to make a few dollars to help pay my way. The only thing I had of real value to sell was my 737 Flight Simulator!

I'm starting to miss it dearly! Oh well, I am have as good a time building watches!

 

Here are few pics of it and a short video...

Sold mine too. Miss flying around. both virtually and in the real Cessna.

What type of Cessna? I have time in a 182 and the new Cessna 162 Skycatcher (although I barely Fit!)

 

My simulator used PMDG's NGX 737. IT was amazing! It is licensed by Boeing and is about 99% accurate in the flight model. The startup procedure alone was a good 20 minutes by the book (checklist)! I was totally astounded on how automated everything is in the 737ng. I was so surprised about the Auto-Land feature, which a number of the 737ng's have! Just program all the airport info into the CPU (ILS frequency, runway number and length, current Altimeter, etc) and basically turn on both autopilots after capturing the glide slope and set the flaps and down to the runway she fly's! It even flares right at the aiming points on the runway!

 

OK, now I'm getting nostalgic... :(

It's amazing how so many people on here have other interests in common. I was involved in aircraft for about seventeen years, learned to fly in Cessna 152's at Dundee then bought a share in a Jodel when I got my licence. Really loved flying the old Jody, especially take off and landing with it being a tail dragger!

There must be a connection somewhere, I have some hours in a 172 skyhawk  &  PA38 Tomahawk,

That's my kind of aircraft.

The Jodel was an old wood and fabric French aircraft built in 1963 and had a Rolls Royce C90 fitted at the sharp end.

    • Thanks🙂 so much I just got your reply so I will let you know. 
    • Hi there Mr jdrichard, glad you have these holders. You can also apply pressure on stubborn screws and the Myers won't let the movement flip of the holder and the whole show end on your bench. Also keep well lubricated both holders.

    • Hi All, Just am update.  I have received the donor movement and took the couple of parts I needed before I started my attempt on the dial side.    I believe I am missing 3 parts.  See photos.  If anyone has them as spares, please let me know.  I am not sure the ‘Dial Rest’ part is needed for mine as it was not on the dial.  It’s big enough for not to be missed etc but I may take it if available.    Regards, Yasser.
    • if the case back is not original you're definitely going to have a problem. Usually when ordering components for cases for Seiko watches everything is based on the case back number. It could be a different case back as long as it's the right case back for that case then you could use the number. But if it's totally wrong case back here in trouble sort of? If you look at the dial usually on the bottom there is a dial number it's not exactly the same as the case number. But it helps to narrow down the range of what you're looking for. They is probably I was Seiko is that they've made so many case components. They haven't old it's been discontinued desk of even a bigger problem.  I know their sites out there were people are modifying their Seiko watches if you can find one of those sites may be they of something generic.
