Watch Repair Talk Website Design

Recommended Posts

I decided to change the design of the site. The main reason was that I was tired of the huge banner at the top which was always there.

 

I hope you guys don't mind, however, if you prefer the old design you can change back as long as you are logged in. You will see a link at the bottom of the page "Change Theme" and I have made "Old Theme" available there.

While this topic is active, I might as well put in a suggestion: the .crosshatch CSS style of the current theme adds a lot to the rendering time and makes Safari on my Mac stutter when scrolling pages. If I remove the crosshatch (via the web inspector) scrolling speed becomes normal again. 

{    /* background: url('/Images/crosshatch.png'); */
    background-repeat: repeat;
    background-attachment: fixed;
}

It's probably only noticeable on slower computers / graphics cards. I see it on my old MacBook Pro with OS X 10.8 and ATI Radeon X1600 graphics but not on my OS X 10.10 machine.

Hi everybody.

 

Mark, I have a problem and I don't know if it is common to others, related with this migration, or not for all. Even I logoff my seccion, when I came again to the WRT site, I was logged on. It's happened for me for the last several logoffs.

It is normal?

Thanks

Clear your cookies, I have a website & migrated to the same software as here & some members where reporting having issues with being logged off between visits or having trouble logging on in the first place. once they cleared the sites cookie & got a fresh one everything was OK.

Hi again. I made this but still the same . :pulling-hair-out:  I really don't know what I must do to fix this (assuming that this problem is in my PC). Yesterday night I left the site with "Sign Out", but today morning I'm back already "Signed In". I don't have problem with this but if it is a problem of the site, I suppose it will better to investigate what is wrong. Any other suggestion?

I remember to did no check any box, and only was show the box asking me if I want to remember my password. I never do this for all softwares or sites. Now, I can't see any box to check as when I open the site I am already login.

 

Cheers too

The box is checked by default so you will need to click on the box to remove the check mark. Since it doesn't show now, I will assume you will need to clear the saved passwords, cookies, history, etc in the tools menu if using explorer. Then re open the page and log in, taking care of removing the default check mark and accepting cookies afterwards since the page requires it.

 

Hope it helps,

 

Bob

I again. I did try to do all again. Clear all my cookies and clear all my temporary internen files and historic (now every site that I go with password to login, ask me to remember or not...), I saw the checked box you told and uncheck again, and even all of this, still the same. I am not worry due I am only one that use my PC, and I bring this to here only because I thought could be a problem of the site or of the server. I can live with this and save me time to make logon . :D Anyway, my sincere thanks for the help. I appreciate.

    • Today I found out the MOERIS is a perfect counterweight on the arm when removing the balance from a dodgy AS970 balance staff. It is a UNITAS 6498 Pocket watch conversersion which will give you the perfect swagg when walking the stripp .
    • Wish I saw this post ten minutes ago, yep you guessed it, I’ve got a damaged main hand now, oh well live and learn as they say
    • Just to avoid making too many new topics with the same subject I will post these PDF:s in this old thread. Since flashplayer is obselete due to security lacks and not every one wants to activate it I have made some PDF:s with two of the most popular movements. This version uses a normal PDF format which you can print out and make notes in while servicing the movement, you can brows them offline while lapping sun. ETA 7750 Chronograph. ETA 7750 Service Notes.pdf  ETA 6497  SwissLab_6497 Service Notes.pdf
    • Thanks for the input Marc. The Bulova was the one that had me interested. As you sa,y at $4.75 each it would perhaps have been worth a gamble -  even to break and flip the unwanted ones to pay for the keepers.  
    • Here’s some shots of the movement, it’s all back together at the moment and running strong, only lost 3 mins in 12 hours so I’m happy with that, even with that canon pinion, which I shall find a replacement for. I had another post a while back asking for information on the “ climax trip action” a few that answered said it was to do with the case but I’m not sure.  If you look at the top plate there is a wheel mounted on a yoke by two screws, one screw is fixed the other allows the yoke to move by a few mm via an elongated screw hole. you will notice a silver spring bar screwed to the plate which in turn locates under the wheel in a groove, of which there are two, not dissimilar to a setting lever. Now all I can see is that the wheel provides an interface for the barrel and then to pass the power to the train, I have no idea why it should be allowed to move or why, I can only assume that this piece of the movement is the “climax trip action” as I have never seen it on another movement.
