  1. You will learn far more by sourcing all the parts yourself. Matching dials to cases, hands etc.
  2. You can use hand press tools, but the tool I use is not expensive and gives more control.
  3. Update: Come on get onboard, it is a great Watch. I have no personal connection to the project owners, it is genuinley worth buying.
  4. It's a good seller, pretty sure it will come back in stock.
  5. Yes got one and impressed. It;s an Escapement Time, sorry cannot post a picture at the moment.
  6. All the parts needed for the build: Movement - Dial and Case Movement in holder ready for the dial to be fitted. Dial fitted; Note: I am using an NH36 movement with day date but only using the date option on this build. Fitting the hour hand. Hour and minute hands fitted. Seconds hand needed broaching slightly as it was too tight to fit on the pivot. After checking the hand clearance I place under a dome to monitor for a short while. Fitting movement to the case. Crown and stem fitted. Movement ring. Movement ring fits in nicely. Movement ring spring, helps maintain some pressure when the case back is fitted so nothing moves around. Case back seal greased. Seal and spring fitted. Case back has been fitted but not torqued down as it will need to come off again later, now on the timing machine for a quick check. Just need to fit the bracelet Bracelet on and now attached to the Cyclotron for further testing (24Hrs) 24 hours later, Bracelet off and just done some final tweaks, the case back is now torqued down properly. Looking good.
  7. James is the designer and also a scientist, works with lasers all day, that aexplains where the name comes from.
  8. Davey P is one of the good guys.
  9. No not called the Exciton 200 just Exciton, I have no idea about sex toys, I will leave that to the experts . Legible fonts nothing cartoonish at all. Do you know what an exciton is, let me help. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exciton
  10. I will indeed make further posts, I suspect the MK1 as it was in limited numbers and case back marked to show this. Not visible in my picture. It has subtle design features that can be missed to the untrained eye.
  11. Anyone looking to buy a new Watch from a new Watch company then look no further. Version two of the Exciton is now live on Kickstarter. I have the version one which I received in January this year and the quality is astounding. V 1: Spec: All Stainless Steel construction 38mm 20mm lug width Screw down crown which is signed Polished case back with conversion table Sapphire crystal BGW9 Lume Brushed ceramic bezel insert with rotating bezel which is precise. Miyota 9015 Auto movement Waffle rubber strap 200m water resistance Two year warranty All I can say is that the version one lived up to my expectations and then some. Version two has some improvements, but rather than me bang on take a look at the video below. I am going to buy the version two, and already made the pledge. Forgot to ad some pictures of mine, here you go. On a Geckota bracelet
  12. Getting some Seiko parts is not that easy. Can a picture be supplied please.
  13. Do a static test. Initial test I would perform is: Fully wound leave crown up position Fully wound leave in crown down position I suspect you could have an issue with the Balance. A Timegrapher would be of great help funding the problem. Finding not funding.
  14. I buy most if mine online, and to be honest never been disapointed. Research is the key for me, and never let me down.
  15. These would possibly be suitable. Hands will fit a 6R15 movement from memory. And a good Watch repairer will be able to do the swap for you. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/154274780791?hash=item23eb7e5677:g:Z~MAAOSwuwVf8b0S You could also have the original hands repainted to a more suitable colour for you. I do like Dauphine hands
  16. I can live with it Alan Email me and let me know how you are doing.
  17. San Martin with Mother Of Pearl Dial and an NH35 movement running at +4 seconds a day.
  18. He was updating a server last I heard, I will see if I can find the Email. Here you go. Watch Repair Lessons <keepingyouinformed@watchrepairlessons.com> To:?????????????? Mon, 26 Apr at 12:04 Hi ???????????????????? I hope you are well. I am just writing to let you know that the website update has been complete and the site is back online. All went mostly to plan, however there is a small problem affecting a portion of users. The issue is not reporting correctly the enrolment of the course to the front end. All data is intact, including progress and assessment data, however - something is lost in translation. I have fixed this manually for the few who have reported it and I have gone through many accounts manually and seen the problem is not affecting everybody. At the moment I can't see a pattern but it's a very easy fix, so if you login and click on your enrolled courses and it shows you ar enot enrolled - fire me off a message and I will sort it for you. In the meantime I am trying to track down the root cause of the issue and will attempt to patch the problem. So in short, if you see a problem with your course access then please message me and I will fix it as quickly as possible for you. Yours kindly. Mark Lovick
