    Gear Cutter ID help needed

    Hi folks, I recently purchased some gear cutters and would like help identifying the meaning of their inscriptions. They were made by B. & S. Mfg. Prov. RI (i.e. Browne & Sharp) with dates (presumably a patent date) of July 28, ’91, Oct. 8 ’92, April 11, ‘94 . 11 of them are 6 tooth cutters...

    Need advice on setting behaviour for an ETA 803.111 movement

    Hi folks, I apologize if it's sacrilegious to discuss this (quartz mvmt) issue here. I tinker with mechanical pocket watches as a hobby, but agreed to see what I could do to fix a dear friends Wegner S.A.K. quartz wristwatch (it would no longer set, time or date).
