• 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!

    Watch stops randomly

    Cleaning can make a watch that ran stop too. The best way I have found to troubleshoot a movement is to squirt light fluid on the center wheel and see if it runs

    Your bench needs to be clean to find anything on it. Something I know but haven't achieved. There will always be that black hole that absorbs parts you lose track of.

    How to remove balance wheel from teeny tiny ladies watches?

    I remove the balance from any watch before it goes into the ultrasonic cleaner. you do so carefully and I grasp the balance wheel and cock with tweezers and then pry the balance up with a small screwdriver. You slip and yep it amounts to a botched hairspring
