• We are aware of the performance issues with the forum. These are due to problems with Comcast's shared lines in the Columbia, PA area. On December 15, we signed a contract to bring a dedicated fiber line to the forum servers. It should take somewhere between 30 and 90 days to install. Thank you for your patience.

    Movado 84-25-811.4 Movement Replacement

    Hello Doug and thank you for the reply. I measured the face at 19mm and the back opening at 17mm so I knew the movement with face and hands would not come out the back. I easily removed the stem and crown. After further checking, I noticed the case could be split. After doing this, the...

    MB Rules and Parts request. Please Read

    Hello Jim Haney, I am new to the watch repair section. I have been repairing clocks for about 15 years and have used the clock section many times. I am in the process of learning more about watches as I have inherited quite a few pocket watches. In my opinion 30-60 days is sufficient to keep...

    It's only a myth... or is it?

    I have had a problem where the clock would stop upon winding, not always, then when the pendulum was swung, the clock would continue running fine. I always looked at this as an issue where the clock just stopped at such the right moment as to not have enough force from the escape wheel to move...

    Electric WW Skagen Second Hand Moves Every 4 Seconds

    Hello and good day, I have a Skagen 583XLSXDO that is about 4 months old. The second hand moves in 4 second increments, but the watch keeps good time over the past couple weeks. Could this be a weak battery, or should I return the watch for warranty repair? I have no idea what could cause...

    Need photo of Roses from a mini (3 ball) schatz

    Hello Again and Good Day! I do certainly agree with the beauty of the original face of the clock showing some age. The face of my clock was comparable to the one shown by TNMechanic before it was cleaned. They do clean up quite nice if one is careful. I was going to add a note that the face...

    Seth Thomas 89I Double-ended key

    Hello Again and Good Day, Thanks for the good advice. I have noticed keys with the same number size are actually different, depending on where they are made! Europe, USA, and India seem to have slightly different tolerances for the same number size. GB
