My First Introduction


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

My name is Karim Noorani and live in Fresno California. My main hobby is learning to repair watches. My other hobbies are photography, BBQing, and gardening. Occasionally I make drinking Guinness stout the other hobby. 20 years ago I visited my uncle in London England. He took me out for some Guinness on tap and was surprised they serve it room temperature. Here in the U.S. They serve it cold. Makes no difference to me I will drink it either way. Lol.

This is a wonderful forum to be a part of. I have learned so much from everybody's input. I also want to congratulate The Watch Repair Guy(Mark) for his success on his videos. I started watching them from the very beginning and noticed the number of views for each video has grown exponentially. More power to you. Best regards. Thank you in advance for welcoming me to this watch forum. Karim

    • In the past i have had them land on my side with seller issues, but this is the first time i have had something missing from a lot. Impossible for either of us to prove ( i should have recorded the unwrapping which i have done in the past with expensive buys.  The seller has just told me that the complete listing was there when it was sent,  asked if the parcel was damaged and has no idea how just one watch could be missing. Hmm i know exactly why it's fooking missing 🤨. Ebay is nearly always on the buyer's side, i spend a lot of money on ebay, so helping me out should be important to them.  To add the seller's feedback isn't squeeky clean so i expect a good outcome. 
    • Got one. Same colour.  Yes, I do the 1/4 system. I did see from JohnR725's .pdf which way to put the crystal. See, I am reading folks. Getting there.     Update. Completed service. All works well. Only problem, the balance spring is out of the regulator pin. Next job using the microscope. Tried it in just for the heck. -890s. Amplitude 197 degrees.   BE 0.2 degrees. Not bad for a watch that would not even wind.  Another tooth ache (age thing). Repair will need to wait now.
    • The click spring should have a tiny notch that fits into a small hole in the plate. Just a tight screw down will be fine or to be safe a spring washer. (If room)
    • Do eBay step up to help in this situation?
    • My least favourite scam is the one I'm experiencing at the moment,  after accepting an offer i made the buyer removed the item i was specifically after from the job lot i received to compensate himself 🤨.
