  1. yes not easy, glad it is not my stuff they are selling
  2. Watch Auction, I hope that this is OK and does not break any rules, but i came across an auction on Sweeney Kincaid's site for watches, short notice auction mostly rotary and citizen Peter
  3. That is a nice watch.... Likeeee
  4. yes, I did worry about a quick whoosh and me having even less hair. Mel, I take it there are no suppliers of this sort of stuff in Scotland, being new to this I fancied a good browse and pick up and poke?
  5. long shot, but does anyone sell this sort of stuff in Scotland?, central belt especially?
  6. Being just a beginner at tinkering I am still collecting the bits I need. Where do you buy your watch cleaning fluid. I can buy from cousins but they only seem to have cleaning fluid in vast quantities 2.5L, 3.8 L and up to 25 L. So I dont want to have vast quantities lying around I don't use, both for space, storage of chemicals and cost. I would also like to know what you use. I was planning to get some small glass pots, 10 ml or so then move the parts by hand through from first wash, to second wash and then rinse and out or is there a better way to do it? Thanks
  7. Surely you were not able to print a spring or will it be motor powered?
  8. Ideal, will try that, the bezel looked very tight, but will work a bit harder
  9. Still Learning and trying to remove a movement from a Unicorn Watch I have removed both the case screws and the stem. However the movement does not want to lift out of the case. Do I need more force? or have I missed something? I am always wary of applying too much force, but dont see any thing else holding the watch.
  10. Well Got the glass out, I put sellotape over the front. Measured it, Ordered replacements from Cousins, also next size up and down. Replaced crystal, put new new battery in the watch Cleaned case with puffer and rodico And Took me a little while to work out how to set the chronograph hands back to zero following a battery change, but that is done and I am happy. I know that as repairs go this is on the nursery side of easy, but I am still chuffed :grin: Peter
  11. and the 710 may never even notice!
  12. Thanks Good Tip, I will give that a try, Peter
