  1. I loved the west end pocket watch, I see it was repaired and sold on your site. Out of interest how much did it sell for. Thanks.
  2. I've gone and brought another non runner from Ebay, I just couldn't turn it down. It's a 16s size, I'm hoping someone will be able to help me with a balance staff for one. OK so it doesn't just need a staff, the hands are rubbish, gold plated, the hands don't turn when the crown is pulled out, the Crown is way too small. But I like it, here hopefully is a picture of the movement, it's a good picture, ( if it uploads ),, sorry I tried
  3. It's a nice job you've done there, many people turn them away, as we know there notoriously temperamental, especially when the public get hold of them. I've done them before now and a week or so later you get them back and the customer has turned the suspension wire has been turn into barley twist. I have one myself that I got from a car bootsale, it had no suspension spring, but after looking through the 400 day bible I manage to make one up, strangely enough it's always gained, but after reading your piece I thought I'd thin the wire down a bit and have another go at timing i
  4. I'd love to see the pictures, post the pictures on another watch forum site and let us know which watch forum it is, then we can see them.
  5. Yes, it is his watch. Well I've worn the watch now for a week, it doesn't mist up. It's been worn everyday, good and bad weather , inside and outside of my jacket. It's been heavy rain it's been warm some days, I have it on a nato strap, today I showered in it, the first time I've ever worn a watch in the SHOWER, the watch did not mist up , it did exactly what it was supposed to do, worked without fault. Someone said it might be the ar coating on the inside of the glass, I have not seen the misting, but it's possible that what has been seen is the anti reflective coatin
  6. I'm still not getting the fact that you said the watch mists up every time you went out . I've been wearing the watch all week , in the pouring rain, in the cold, sat above a radiator, I've worn it inside my coat, outside my coat, I've had its inside a fridge then worn the watch. I cannot get it to steam up, or mist up as you have said it does, it had moisture on the out side of the watch after it came out of the fridge, but there was no evidence at all that the watch misted up on the inside. So I really don't know what the man has been doing to make the watch mist up..
  7. It's use has been mandated in the procurement specification MIL-W-46374F. Over 3000.000 watches in the US army were illuminated by traser. Does this still count a a small boutique brand.
  8. Gosh, it's an old one..
  9. I'm a bit confused, you say it mists up every time you go out, but it's just the same picture, so is it every time you go out or not.
  10. Well I had a look for Traser watch problems, and it kept referring to some company selling the watches ,who was having problems, and some one one else from Australia. All depends on what you do with a watch when your wearing it, a lot of people where them in the shower, which I've never understood.
  11. Well I sorted it out now, removed the stem, fitted a small spring within the pendant tube and ta da, no more wobbly crown.
  12. I have just got one of these waterproof russian watches, it has a bezel on it a anchor on the dial. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement screw down Crown, as the one that is on the watch the spring has gone on it, and it just flops around when its unscrewed. Thanks.
  13. Well , so many makers used aluminium, longines , omega , smiths , to name but a few. I've a couple of smiths some where, still going strong.
