Absolutely - thats the one. So far I have had a few issues with it but noting major.
The gib in the compound slide was bent - easy fix but I need maybe add a couple more gib screws to make it more smooth and it came with an extraordinary amount of grit on the lead screws and ways. This is common with chinese lathes I think but didn't expect it with "German quality" - lesson learned
I would like to install a thrust bearing too, to minimise backlash. But the parts I have made so far are quite accurate not bad for a light duty lathe. Not unhappy.
There you go

I have always liked watches - always had one on my wrist since I was a kid (over 40 years ago!). However, I really just started considering watches as a hobby as I am now fascinated by automatic/manual wind movements. I am very mechanically adept and love figuring things out, so I feel watches would be a natural extension of what interests me.
My goal is to learn all I can as see where the journey takes me. I have some inherited watches that I would love to be able to service/get running - eventually.
Excited to learn!!

Military watch ? War time vintage?God only knows what stories it could tell. What it is telling me now, is that it is a well serviced , well worn watch.Speaking as an old Grunt, I would tell you that we don't like to be poked any more than is necessary.
