I have been working hard on developing a video manager on the Watch Repair Talk community website which will allow users to pause and resume, and go back to where they left off even days later. The videos are uploaded in a higher bit rate and resolution than the videos I upload to YouTube.

Obviously this is a great feature especially for the longer videos.

 

Speaking of longer videos.. on YouTube, I tend to break them up into several parts and upload them as episodes. You will notice that with the premium videos they are not split.

 

Going forward, new videos will be uploaded to the Premium Video section before they go up on YouTube, and I will be posting some exclusive clips there too. And as a Patron, you will always have full unrestricted access otherwise there is a 10 minute per day limitation.

 

Please take a look and please let me know if you encounter any problems.

What a great initiative. Even from my non-patron status (which I plan to upgrade when back from travel) I would actually support that you further abridge the free videos. Too many free-loaders on the Internet. You have built the best modern watchmaking resource ever, it's right that at least it pays for itself.

Mark. I am very interested in signing up but I was wondering if you have any terms and conditions? For example can I cancel at some month later down the road? For example. What if you decide to not do any videos for several months or disappear altogether? Would you be able to terminate the ongoing payment?

@horsetrailer, Thank you for your interest. I chose to use Patreon rather than Paypal because it is a dedicated Pledge based system. Patreon allows you full control to cancel or change your pledge at any time without me being involved (I don't have to authorise cancellations for example). I hope this gives you confidence but if you have any further questions please let me know.

      Hi,
      I am new to watch repair and have mainly been servicing simple eta movements for my own
      I have always wanted a chronograph watch and have found a watch based on a valjoux 7750 with a broken case.
      I want to put the movement into a new case but the dial is a day date and the movement is date only.
      I have sourced all the parts and have fitted them to the movement to add the day function.
      The donor watch didn't use a dial washer / foil, do I need to use one now I have added the day indicator?
      If I do need a foil, what size and where from?
       
      Thanks very much
       
      Stuart

      Hi
      I have recently gotten interested to learn and acquire knowledge about watches and there movements.
      I have a question for the initiated,if there is rust in the parts of the watch must the patts be replaced or can they be cleaned with a rust removal process or is that not advisable due to the parts being very fragile in nature.
       
      Thanks again for youre time.

      Hello and greetings to all!,
      I have 2 "tools" perhaps. I don't see a spot for it on my staking tool. Let me back up as well. I have introduced myself on Watch Repair Talk. I said I am a fledgling watch repairer.However, I am more like still in the egg. I have fixed quite a few watches and destroyed even more. Its ok though, I get a box of watches and practice. One time I even got a great deal on a box of watches price wise and it contained 2 working Suunto watches and even a couple of watches that were solid gold. You have to admire and love young adults that sell granddads watches on eBay  for pocket money without a clue what they are selling. If people spend a few bucks to have it appraised it would knock their socks off at what the watch is really worth.
           Sorry I am babbling . If anyone kind enough that knows what these "Tools?" are I would be grateful and possible name my next child after you. The one thing you can not see from the picture is some or most of the hole are tapered.
      Thank-You
      Matt H. Clearwater, Florida

    • Back in the 70's and 80's when parts for Seiko movements were plentiful, Seiko recommend you changed the barrel complete I think every 5 or 7 years. These days you have to take the barrel apart and clean it all and put back as parts are more likely to be obsolete.   
    • Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum. That skeleton clock is what is known as a passing strike. It strikes 1 on every hour. Very much like this one made by Mr David West.  
    • The vintage L&R vari-matic ultrasonic's in all three baskets. The newer machines do not. Also be aware these vintage machines I was told have NO earth.
    • Welcome! That is a pretty Alpina.  I like its style.  I too would be very careful about polishing it up at all.  If you decide to though, there are silver polishing cloths you could use.  I wouldn't use anything stronger than those, if at all, and I'd use a very gentle touch with them. You could put a polishing cloth on the rounded end of a little paintbrush handle and just sort of "spot polish" the vine patterns and border.  That might work.  But I'm still leaning toward leaving it be.
    • This always amuses me as a wonderfully ambiguous statement. Lubricated for life? which is how long....????? One wonders if Seiko would provide a free replacement spring and barrel if it were found to be faulty after the warranty period has expired on the grounds that a reasonable lifetime for the watch (and therefore any component contained therein) is significantly more than the normal 1 year warranty period that is usually offered, especially since in practise their watched have been shown to last 50+ years.
