  1. A treasure in a junk pile

    Again, I'm so very excited I cannot wait untill the job really IS completed.
    I'm writing before it's truly completed, but then again - this time I think I finally got SOMETHING
    Recently I bought myself a pile of junk on eBay. As the Global Shipping Program is sometimes terribly slow, it took a long time to wait (with growing anxiety) untill the junk arrived, but finally I got my stuff early this month.

  2. Rotherhams 19 jewel English lever movement

    Oh, what a day it was yesterday!
    After a whole day's work (till 6PM) I was in a great hurry, no doubt, trying to get back home, change clothes and make it for the event held in the National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra concert hall in Katowice.
    Thet was due to begin at 7:30PM, so there was not much time, and even worse - as I finally arrived 15 minutes before the deadline, there was not a single parking space.
    I could have known! Why did I not ask my brother to drive me there ...

  3. Benjamin the Builder

    Taking a few steps back in time, I'd like to return to my very first blog post...
    In my first post, I described an early Nationa Watch Co. 18 size movement, top B.W.Raymond grade.
    With the S/N of circa 19 thousand, it was probably finished in or before 1870., still maintaining the orginal BWR model 1 design.

    But I'm not going to re-write this post - it's still available
    This blog post is about Mr Raymond himself.

    Some time ago, on a Polish listing, ...

  4. A balance job... Independent Watch Co. movement in details

    This time I've got another interesting piece on my desk. It has only just arrived from Alaska...
    It's an Independent Watch Co (of Fredonia) 18 size full plate movement (the no cutout version), presumably made by United States Watch Company, which I'm not so sure about...
    Still - surely a marion dereviate.
    For the last two days I've been working on this movement to make it run again. Let's have a look...

  5. BeiHai anniversary watch

    Hello again!

    I've already written a blog post (apart from the American watchmaking I'm writing about al the time) about a Czech watch, a Swiss watch, some about Russian/Soviet watchmaking and one about English as well, so now it's time for China...

    Let me guess your first association, the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the words 'Chinese watch'...
    Crap... counterfeit... or worse even perhaps. For some of you I'm probably right, while some of you ...
