  1. Watchmaking
    Hello Everyone, I am currently just getting started in the world of watches, and have only been collecting for about 1.5 years. I have a question regarding arguably one of my least valuable watches, but one that has a lot of sentimental value to me, so I'm willing to put some money and...

    Hi All, I'm embarking on getting my stopped Borealis Porto Santo running again, and am in need of some advice around the Miyota 8218 movement. The watch stopped while I was traveling-I changed the time twice as I flew East, and after the second reset, it never started back up. A day later...
  3. Clock world
    I am looking for parts to repair my Junghans W278 1953 movement. The mainspring and one of the gears are broken. Is there any sort of website that I could find replacement parts on? I've tried looking on ebay, but all of the clocks on there with matching movements are too expensive to use just...
  4. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hello. I noticed that the crown on my pocket watch did not wind up the spring, but continued to move the hands. I removed the cover to investigate and found that if I removed the white plastic covering and pushed the mechanism slightly towards the crown, the crown would switch properly again...

    Hello there, I'm wondering if moebius 9501 would be a suitable braking grease for a mainspring? Personally when servicing watches I've never touched the mainspring but my most recent purchase may require me to do so, especially since it's my first chronometer certified watch and I'd like to...

    I chipped the crystal on my Defender II after rubbing against a concrete retaining wall while doing yard work. My plan is to replace it with sapphire. Does anyone know the dimensions of the crystal or am I stuck having to disassemble the watch, pop out the crystal and measure it myself in...
  8. Sinn
    Hello guys, Maybe some one can give me some advise, I own a Sinn 856 UTC, and recently I was changin the time and the crown broke off from the stem. I can find the replacement stem for this movement, but no idea how to re-install it in the crown, as it seems the old one broke off without...
  9. Citizen
    This is quite urgent, and I think this is definitely the consequence of my idiocy, a couple weeks ago I wore this watch to the beach, I dipped my hand in the sea and quickly realised what I had done, removed my watch and dried it off. It worked the rest of the day so I considered myself lucky...

    Hi everyone! Long time lurker first time poster, so I purchased an old Elco branded watch hoping to fix it up, I could see it didn't have a crown but was hoping it still had a stem, alas not. The movement is also completely devoid of any manufacturer markings anywhere so I was hoping some of...
  11. Vintage Watch Review (Vintage Japanese Watches)
    Hey Guys, I have a vintage AE-220 whichI bought from a flea market. It had a leaked battery inside. I got it services and cleaned after which it started working. Didn’t seem to have damaged any strips or contacts. I’ve recently noticed a crackling (For Eg. sounds like wood burning slowly)...

    The bracelet on my M1 Pro after almost 8 years of mostly daily wear has had a small breakage. The tiny spring piece which snaps it closed before you close the little latch had snapped off. The only thing keeping it on for the last month has been the little flip latch. It flopped around a bit...
  13. Casio G-Shock
    I have a Casio G-7710-1ER which I've had for a few years now and have taken it in water several times with no problem. Recently I had a new battery fitted but the shop that did it said they could not guarantee it would remain water resistant and asked whether I wanted them to go ahead and...

    Hello fellow watch fans, I have a glycine combat sub glo256. The blacked out pvd model. It's a decent watch, and I like it ok, but when I got it, the bezel alignment was off. So, as I'd done with many other watches I've repaired or did mods on, I was going to pop the bezel off, get the insert...

    Hi, Im new to the forums and i was looking for some help. I recently bought a vintage 70s/80s Trafalgar chronograph from ebay. It wasnt too expensive, but i thought it was a nice watch alternative to my Tudor sub. The watch was sold as working, but after a few days it jammed up and stopped...

    I have a Casio Edifice EF-503 quartz Chronograph that I really like. The other day I noticed that that the chrono seconds hand did not return to 12 o'clock properly when I pushed the bottom button, but returned to another place. I kept "returning" to different places if I started and reset the...

    Hey all, I've got a diver (date only) with an ISA 1198. Is it possible to replace the ISA with an ETA automatic? There's space for a thicker movement in the case.

    Hello All, I bought a quartz Vacheron Constantin watch in Feb 2015. Brought it in the brand's repair center for a battery change in Nov 2018 and after that I started to notice the watch started to develop a discoloration on the dial in the past two years. (Mainly on left side of the watch, from...
