  1. It doesn’t matter how much you big up the font. It doesn’t work on a watch sub-dial this small. Of course some people liked the older design and some didn’t. This will happen with every single design you come out with. As far as I can tell you have actually not made any watches. Just pictures. Therefore you are not even a microbrand yet, unless I’m missing something? Why not actually make some watches, have some conviction in what you are doing. You will never make a watch that everyone is going to like. I didn’t say I liked the old design, I said I preferred it to this one. I still wouldn’t have bought it. In six months you’ll come back with another totally different design so for these reasons ……………
  2. I'm getting desktop notifications on my PC from Microsoft edge browser without even having the browser open.
  3. It is Adolph Schild never heard of any reference to an Anton Schild.
  4. Even with my glasses on I cannot see what the two sub dials say. The images are already blown up in size so I doubt anyone will be able to read them without a magnifying glass. The italic font is used on the date too, this is so hard to read even with good eyesight. Is it just me? Prefer the original design.
  5. The notification sound has been abandoned with the new software. However if you look in your notification settings, and scroll down to the bottom, you can now allow push notifications in your browser. Push notifications typically show on the home screen of a phone or in the notification tray of a desktop computer and it should not matter if you are logged in or not, there maybe browser or computer additional settings. Apple phones or Mac pcs do not work.
  6. Most unique was three tuning fork watches that were sent to me by Max Hetzel and his daughter. These were tuning fork prototypes which he was going to mass produce but Bulova stopped him. I managed to get two working. One was returned to the Hetzels and the others were given to me. Mr Hetzel’s Accutron was also repaired and serviced by me. This was about 25 years ago.
  7. Well that’s lowered the price then
  8. With the update all notifications were reset to default.
  9. Our software here has been updated, other forums have probably have not. Also other forums may only use the free inferior forum software which do not have the features that we do. Tapatalk has not updated their software so there is nothing I can do, sorry.
  10. The middle prong connects with a cog in the movement that pushes it, thus causing the spring to move the balls one way, as the balls spin one way then back again the cog pushes the pin again, etc etc.
  11. Due to us recounting all the points all the badges and achievements, that you would have received over the years, will be added the first time you login after yesterdays update. These will be shown as received before June 2021. It will settle down after these have all been issued.
  12. From memory I think it runs for 60 minutes then stops, it been a while since I had mine. They do this to conserve power.
  13. 1400 posts in two months, that's got to be a record or an illness
  14. Nearly sold it but it's just too shiny to let go. I can always ask you what time it is
  15. They are easy to break but the best way is to fix it in position by hand and then use a crystal press, with flat nylon dies, to push it in the rest of the way. That is if it is held in by a nylon washer seal and the seal is in perfect condition. Some were glued in as the crystals were very thin. These crystals are expensive and I would suggest you get it professionally fitted.
  16. Thank you Steve The mods deserve a great deal of praise too. They are always helping to make this place better for everyone.
  17. I've not upgraded the Tapatalk software for years. Don't know if they support this software anymore. Didn't think anyone used it anymore as the mobile browser version of the forum is brilliant. I'll have a look for you and see if it's still available.
  18. A new rank and achievement system has been implemented. Moods have been removed.
