    Western Union Naval Observatory Clock.

    Good afternoon, Dave! That pendulum swing actually looks normal to me. One way to let down the mainspring (which is pretty light-duty to begin with) would be to disconnect the power, and let the clock run until it stops dead. There won't be much left in the mainspring if you do that. Read the...

    Servicing a Hammond Bichronous Movement

    Good evening, Allan! Ken Reindel of kensclockclinic.com is an expert on restoring these clocks. You might want to visit his website and contact him. He recently did a presentation for Chapter 21 in Denver (on Zoom) regarding these clocks, and it was recorded. Best regards! Tim Orr

    Watch is gaining 6 min in 15 hours

    Good evening, Alexander! There are lots of experts here, but I would suggest you provide a description of the watch, manufacturer, model, serial number, etc. Photos are great if you can do them. Even videos can be helpful. When was the watch last serviced? Suffice it to say that a gain that...

    Good afternoon, all! Turning lemons into lemonade: A number of NAWCC Chapters are holding meetings online using the Zoom system (or others). This is a great way to keep chapter members "connected" and active during this time of Covid. After attending a Zoom meeting held by the Seattle Area...

    Help "Download all post attachments"

    Good afternoon, Tom! Well, it's not the end of the world, but my past experience tells me that whenever an anomaly appears, it is important to report it. I can download attachments one at a time. It was just nicer and more efficient with the Zip system. If there's no longer any support for the...

    Help "Download all post attachments"

    Good evening, all! Another interesting thing: I tried to do a search just now, and when I started entering my name, a bunch of "Tim"s came up, but not me. When I went to the "Advanced" mode, the same thing happened until I entered "Tim Orr," at which point, my name and avatar appeared. Seems...

    Help "Download all post attachments"

    Good afternoon! There used to be, when there were multiple attachments to a post (a common occurrence with Board postings), a link that would allow me to download a "Zip" file with all the attachments together. Can't find it now. Did it go away? There is an old thread with the same subject...

    Good evening, Jack and Bila! My apologies for any and all inaccuracies. All are mine. I am working from memory. I use "watchmaker" as an honorific. I have no authority to confer a title. For Bila: I am not sufficiently confident of my skills to remove the works from the case. Measuring...

    Looking to Sell Father's Large Clock & Watch Collection

    Good afternoon, Molly! Do bear in mind that placing a large number of items on the market at any one time can actually depress the prices you are able to get for them. If you have the luxury of time, you might wish to parcel them out a little bit over an extended period. Depending on how...

    T. Eaton Co Limited wristwatch

    Good afternoon, all! Attended the meeting of Chapter 160 (Boulder Horological Society) on Zoom today. Very knowledgable watchmaker, Jack Wood, points out that the "Scepter" trademark was used by Star on cases other than gold-filled, but that was the way the mark was registered. He also points...

    T. Eaton Co Limited wristwatch

    Good evening, all! I also heard that from about 1930-1950, Eaton's gave engraved Rolex wristwatches to employees with 25 years of service. These, from what I can see, were private label Rolexes. Know of any company that would give you a Rolex for 25 years service today? Best regards! Tim
