  1. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi All, About 6 months ago, I purchased a very worn vintage Chronograph watch of unknown origin. The only clue to its identity is the stamp shown below on the back of the dial. Does anyone know the brand? Image searches etc. haven't turned up anything. The movement appears to have been picked...
  2. Vintage & Pocket watches
    [First post and an amateur in the world of watches - hope this post is allowed] I recently inherited a Vacheron Constantin 4178 (see pictures), circa 1940, in rose gold and steel, and have decided to sell the watch. The exterior of the watch is unfortunately in quite bad condition, with a...

    A while ago I picked up this Hisonic 3701-370228TA. I've been interested in turning fork movements and this one grabbed my attention. I've been working on my refinishing and general restoration skills and this looked it had potential for a fun project. All I knew was it was running and obviously...

    Hi, I am currently working on restoring a seiko 7016-7000, and the second hand is quite loose and the hour and minute hands arein bad shape. If I simply want the chronograph second, (central) hour and (central) minute hands, can I buy a (far cheaper) set of hands for a 613x chronograph rather...

    Did you ever wonder if you could do a full restoration including lubrication of your own vintage wristwatches? I did. It cost me about $800 in tools and supplies and I made a one hour and forty six minute multicam video to record every detail of the process in realtime. ETA 2472 Full Service...

    Hi guys, I've recently got the watch bug and got my dad's old quartz seiko watch model 7n43-9041 which unfortunately is dead. Am trying to fix it as a surprise for him and need to find a replacement movement for the watch. The actual movement in the watch says 7N43A 2 on it (picture attached)...

    Hi all, I've been collecting and trading in vintage watches for a while and I've always wanted an early Enicar Sherpa Dive. The opportunity came up very recently for me to purchase one which is in very poor condition and needs a full restoration. I'm either very brave or very stupid, so I...

    Pictures first! See my comments below for details. The watches were returned in these restoration service commemorative boxes... ... and wrapped in this sort of clothy bag. Together the bag and tabs firmly hold the watch in place in the shipping box. Since a primary thing about...

    Has anyone bead blasted a Yachtmaster bezel? I’ve found some old threads that talk about this process but it does not discuss the type of media to use. Does anyone know if glass beads will approximate the factory finish and if so, what size should I get? I’ve seen #7, #10, etc., also, what PSI...

    Got this watch for a really nice price, the model number is ST 121.0001 and I figured the dial had been totally cleaned, leaving no writtings or markers. It works perfectly and keeps great time, should I send it to Omega for a restoration, since I loved it, or is it possible to get a redial, a...

  15. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Firstly, I'd like to mention that I hand polished / brushed the case to lightly refinish it, as it was in bad condition since I won it for very cheap on an auction. I didn't try to refinish it to looking new. I just wanted to give it a little bit of shine. I know polishing can be a touchy...

    Hi all, With the aftereffect of covid lifestyle and having wayyy too much free time these days, I decided to pick up light watch restoration as a hobby. I've gotten a couple watches from ebay and they've been awesome to fix up and bring new life to, but I've officially been burned on orders...

    Hi Guys, Could anyone recommend a good dial restoring companies ideally in the UK, preferably with some pictures of previous work they've carried out. I did see in previous posts people have recommended C&F, I managed to contact them, but unfortunately they are no longer operating. I got a...
