  1. Thanks for the advice, I hadn’t thought of looking at the pocket watch route first
  2. Evening, I have recently joined as I have always had an interest in watches and need a hobby to focus my mind and fettling watches seemed to be the logical move. I am a complete amateur when it comes to repair, I can replace batteries/capacitors, resize bracelets etc but I am very keen to expand my skill set. I am a visual learner and tend to learn most effectively when I’m immersed in the task so I was just want advice on where to buy some starter projects. I obviously don’t want to start with a Lecoultre or Omega, but I would like a cheap mechanical watch that I can dismantle, reassemble and get a feel for so I can start to understand the mechanisms and engineering involved before I start to actually repair and built my collection with watches that I have serviced, repaired and kept alive.
  3. Thanks for the welcome and thanks for the tip re the BHI
  4. Hi, I’ve been lurking for a while and thought it’s about time I joined. I have a small collection, mainly Seiko, a Suunto and a couple of others. I have always admired watches and I’m keen to continue building my collection, but I want to learn how to restore and tinker with them as well. Hopefully I’ll be able to get some pointers and advice on the way. Looking forward to learning more and exploring a few different makes as well
