    12 size B.W.Raymond movement

    Do you have one from similar run? Because I want to confirm the brass wheel is a replacement. I should have a higher grade wheel somewhere. Not that good, but a GMW grade wheel should be somewhere in my trash...

    12 size B.W.Raymond movement

    Hi again! It’s been a while, but I don’t work on watches that much anymore. So much going on in my life recently, I don’t have time or attention to spare. This is what I got recently, though... Short of balance wheel and... I think this should have a better center wheel... But still, a...

    H. O. NARDIN ?

    Rare, early Olivier Quartier (au Locle en Suisse) lever pocket watch.

    I've refreshed the case from outside a bit and I wear this Quartier from time to time. The back is bad, but all in all it looks very well.. Actually it turns out to be a good 'keeper' and can be used to keep time. Also, it does not have a fusee chain, so it can be worn on daily basis...

    Geneva stop question

    It’s not very difficult to work on the stopworks, as the setup tension is low and not ‚dangerous’ so to say. Sometimes I manage to do it at first shot, sometimes second, but I never damaged anything working on that particular mechanism. Very straightforward...

    Bought in Prague - a miracle from Lower Silesia

    I've gone to the Museum of Decorative Arts and it's just glass and litography at the moment :( Anyway... the watch was non working, so I took it apart... The watch needed a mainspring, so I fitted a used one... Good enough.... The parts cleaned up very well. Especially the dark-tarnished...

    Bought in Prague - a miracle from Lower Silesia

    Prague again! Close to the market square, I found a nice place :) There were many nice watches there and some caught my eye, but having too many things to spend money on, I decided to choose something inexpensive... This is just a 4 jewel cylinder watch... What makes it nice, though...
