• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

    A TALE OF 2 CLOCKS (SCHATZ 59’s)

    I like everything you did, except for this teflon lube that you used. I would go with a different lube. I am impressed with your work and observations . Though its not a 400 day clock. Always wanted one, but never got one.

    Beginner/general question about not running ship clocks

    Spraying brake cleaner on a clock movement is in now way cleaning a movement. Has to come all apart to do a proper job. Short cuts will come back and bite you every time.

    American After 1900 American PW Cleaning Disassembly 1912 Elgin 313 Pocket Watch - Repair Plan of Attack

    Take your time when you work on your watch. If you feel tired or not up to it, dont work on your watch. If you get frustrated any time, walk away and relax. Then come back to it later. I have broke a few pivots when i first got into watch repair.

    This is a private label watch from a jeweller in Quebec, Canada. Wondering if anyone might know the maker of it?

    Dollar Watch Repair

    I took the advice of many and did not learn watch repair on dollar watches. Instead i started on 16 and 18 sz american made movements. I have very little luck with dollar watches. Usually a duncan swish in coleman fuel and some oil is all they get.
