      Hi Fellow People,
      Im reaching out as I’m currently learning all I can about watchmaking, and am working through the BHI distance learning technicians course, with my exam booked for May. 
      I will need to service a quartz watch as part of my practical exam, and am learning about watch lubrication. 
      A few months ago I found a great article that covered the technique for dipping and collecting the right amount of oil on the oiler, such as the speed and angle of the dip, however, I now can’t find it anywhere, no matter how much I search the internet 
      Does anyone have or can point me in the right direction of instructions specifically on oil collection on the oiler?  As you will know there is lots on the actual oiling process but not the oil collection process.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.  
      Thanks
      Bethan

      Hello. I am considering buying a bottle of fixodrop and I found that there are many options regarding the quantity.
      Since I am hobbyist watchmaker, I don't service a watch very often.(Couple of them in a month)
      In this case, would it be okay to purchase the smallest amount of fixodrop(1ml)? 
      One more thing. Is there anything else I should get to apply the fixodrop to my pallet fork?

      Hello all,
      I'm about to service a Timex 260 electric movement.  It's running strong as-is, but I doubt that it has been cleaned or lubricated in its lifetime.  I do have the service manual for the movement and for most of the oil points, the SM calls for Moebius Synt-A-Lube, without specifying a product number (I intend to use Moebius 9010), but for the friction pinion the manual calls for "spreading type oil" (Woods AAAA oil).  I cannot find a cross-reference for this old Woods oil and most watch oils are, of course, specifically formulated to NOT spread...  so, I'm seeking advice and suggestions for a suitable oil to use on the friction pinion.  Also, if anyone thinks that 9010 is NOT appropriate to use for the various other points, please let me know.
      Thanks much!
      Ben

      Hi all, I'm thinking about investing in the set of automatic oilers available from cousins. They cost about 200 quid with the VAT, that's obviously a lot of money so just wondered if any of you use them and are they worth the money?

    • thanks for your input but your wrong on several levels about black dials and white dials and what eterna made and did not make  your input is nothing special.A few Eterna ATP watches have been found with both black and white dials, mostly black, and a central seconds sweep hand.    Black dials and central seconds are inconsistent with the ATP characteristics, but a handful of Eterna ATP watches exist and it is thought that about 600 may have been made from the known serial numbers.So there are black and white dials and the 850 series movements
    • I think you'd also need to remove the upper bezel (which holds the crystal in) as the dial will be bigger than the case-hole. Anilv
    • Most military watches have a number engraved on it somewhere... there always remained the property of the military and the numbers were meant to keep track of who was issued what. Also the numbers helped to ensure servicing records kept accurately. For the two dots on the hand.. this was more to break up the large mass of luminous material.. nothing special here. Also I believe most military watches are usually black dialed? Anilv
    • this watch had no case back and as you can see the solution picked up quite a bit of debirs.
    • Before - and - After  107 Timex Automatic.  This model orginated with a 31 automatic and was later made with the update 107. This watch insored designer Todd Synder to create a monern version.  Actually quite a nice homage but saddly only a quartz https://www.toddsnyder.com/pages/the-military-watch-by-todd-snyder-timex
