Here's my workspace ... Mahogany writing desk from the 60ies (same time period as me and most of my watches) ... "neo-vintage" modded by myself ... In a few weeks I'll move out to a new home where I'll have space enough to organise a specific area for "machinery" ... a drill stand I already have and a pad-printer I have just ordered ... later I'll probably get a lathe and a 4 axes engraver ...
It may function perfectly well for many years, in much the same way as a fake Rolex may function perfectly well for many years, but if you have bought one or been sold one as genuine then a deception has taken place a fake or homage that is sold as such is just that and costs much less than the real thing.
Anyone who is paying antique French carriage clock money for a modern Chinese one is being deceived and anyone who is passing off such a clock as the real article is committing a fraud.
The Chinese are churning out these things by the thousand, fine but lets never forget that they are a £50.00 product at best and if they didn't sell they would not make them but never can they be considered as good as a genuine article.
Hi Everyone, thanks in advance
I have Caravelle N8 mechanical watch, 7 jewels, the problem it has is that its second hand kicks back couple of times during 1 minute which is causing it to fall behind in time. What can be the underlying cause ?
