Lew & Me


Recommended Posts

I have two male cats named Charley & Dexter. Charley is a mouser and very rarely stays in doors but Dexter is more of  homely cat. Very often he sits on my lap while I am stripping a watch or clock. However he is not allowed in my workshop when cleaning and assembling because them cat hairs are a bloody nuisance.

My cat knows its not allowed on the bench top, but she jumps up there anyhow, but always jumps up on the far side of the bench away from me so I have to get up and walk over  to her and pick her up and carry her to somewhere else/

I'm sure she thinks it is a game.

Here is my cat "Lew" helping me adjust a pocket watch and adding  a hair to places one should never be.

I think we should start a thread dedicated to Horologists and their cats [emoji3]

This is George. He doesn’t just do watches. Here he’s helping me update the operating system on an iPhone.

We have two, in fact we have always had cats that always live to a ripe old ages. Very often I have one sitting on my lap when dis- assembling and the other under the workbench in the winter where there is a radiator. However they are not allowed when assembling them bl**dy hairs get everywhere.

We have 30 cats so I must be gaining half an hour every minute!

Mind I don’t love all of them all of the time. Worming tablets usually involve some blood loss on my part!

Whoa! A whole colony! 

They stay inside or outside or both?

      Hi friends,
      I have a 1970's Slava Soviet made watch my uncle gifted me when I was 9... I have kept it in mint condition all these years and for some reason I decided to have it serviced.
      I took it to a watch repair shop (had 5 stars) spoke with the employee and specifically asked to have the watch back in the same or better condition, when I got it back 6 weeks later I noticed they had scratched and damaged the bezel and changed the spring (even through I asked to call me incase any part needs to be replaced) 
      Now I need to replace the bezel so thats its not chewed up, the factory does not make parts for it and I am distraught as it was in perfect shape and it took someone else to ruin the watch. I only blame myself but it hurts ?
       
      Please help me find the bezel and get it back to its former self as much as possible.

      Hello! The outer part of the rotor on my grandpa's lucien piccard seashark (AS 1580 movement) has come loose. Is there any way to repair this rotor or must it simply be replaced?

      Hi. Aftet many hours trying to fit a seagull st36 to a hamilton kahki case I think I'm done. First recieved movement and put all parts together with a pleasef smile on my face. Then the second hand stopped.... Aftet advice i took parts apart fiddled with second hand and rebuilt parts. This time the stem just doesn't engage properly and slips in and out easily. Movement is fine it seems but stem just doesn't want to play. It did when first assembled. So i am figuring i just want it working and want to send it off to someine far more experienced than I....any sugestions?

    • Hello Everyone, I'm Ed, a new fella to Watch Repair Talk. I guess I have YouTube to thank for getting me fascinated with watchmaking. For a few years ago I started watching Watchfinder & Co videos, odd since I didn't own a watch until about a month ago! But ownership didn't really come into it, I just appreciated the craftsmanship that went into making watches and the precision required to do so. Then, about a year ago I found a channel called Wristwatch Revival with a chap called Marshal. He dismantled, cleaned, oiled and reassembled a watch and explained what he was doing and why. That kind of got me hooked. There's also something that really attracts me to the idea of taking a broken watch that could be older than me and making it live again, it's hard to put into words. Hope I'm not over romanticising!  So after a lot more watching and reading and watching I decided to take the plunge and commit to buying some tools in order to learn hands on about watch repair. I have some sacrificial, broken-beyond-repair pocket watches to get me started. Also an understanding that I'll be watching mainsprings take flight, loosing just about anything that can be lost and be spending about 50% of my time on my hands and knees hunting for whatever it was I dropped. That's about enough for now, I hope this post finds you all well and enjoying watchmaking. Best regards, Ed. 
    • Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum.
    • I think the UK is pretty well known for staid taste, and this ain't that; probably explains some of the reaction. As a woodworker, I can appreciate the use of wood and grain. Even with thousands of dollars in exotic woods stashed in a room in my basement, I have to say it's a bit busy for me for the piece. Some people will dig the natural beauty of it though.
