  1. Thanks @WRENCH and @gimli I'll see how bad it actually is when it arrives. I was actually thinking more of in general terms of any watch as a whole, as to what is acceptable, cleaning & repairs to cosmetics rather than replacement to make it look more like new. Is there a general rule of thumb for this sort of thing or does it just come down to personal preference ?
  2. I have a 50's watch with a scratched glass on its way, looking for insight into whether or not its best to just clean up the watch to preserve its originality or to replace any visually worn parts rather than keeping worn original parts. How does each approach affect appeal / resale value ect. what would you guys do ? And how far would you go ? Both pics are of the same watch just lit differently.
  3. Today's watch is new to me and of course needed a longer strap. I'll do some digging on age etc and update later
  4. I picked up a few NOS Smiths / Ingersol / Services pocketwatch hairsprings a few weeks ago, if you cover the post I stick one in the post.
  5. Must say I like that too
  6. Not usually my style ........... But, that has something Special, I really like that it looks great
  7. Very clean look, like @RoddyJB Just pop one of each in the post and I'll road test em for you. Good Luck with the new edition.
  8. It's enough to bring tears to your eyes, I hate when that happens.
  9. Thanks for sharing, a very interesting and useful resource
  10. Must agree with that, a quick soak and then 10 -12 minutes in the ultrasonic tank, works wonders.
  11. A very generous gift.
  12. I wind them when I come to wear them, that could be every day, weekly or monthly depends on circumstances. The distinction between older and newer types of oil is interesting, when would you say the newer type oils came into common use ?
  13. And even they have moved their home They'd be worn out before I walked to Bolton from here
