    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.

  2. Seiko
    Hello, Like the title say, I would like to restore my Seiko watch pictured below. I acquired it for free from someone who did not want it anymore. It is pretty beat up. When I acquired it, it was in working condition and still had the other strap, which has since tore off. I assume it would...
  3. Vintage & Pocket watches
    I'm waiting for some spare parts to arrive so I took up an idea that I have had for a long time: restoring and / or making custom dials. I want to try treatments of various types to polish, paint and print dials. Long ago I took apart a pocket watch that finally ended up in the spare parts...

    Hello G-shock gurus! I am in need of your assistance. 15 years ago, my parents gifted me a G-shock (G-353B) after graduating bootcamp.

    Hello watchuseek I am trying to figure out what watch did my grandfather own, and whether it would be worth trying to get it serviced/restored? Any thoughts or advice would be great. I cannot recognize this company/manufacturer.

  8. Clock world
    Hello All. I'm looking for some input in a restore project I've taken on. I got this clock on bid for rather cheap so thought why not get it into good shape again. once I got it.

  9. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi~ I buy and resell used watches on eBay. Many times I come across watches that are in bad shape cosmetically but still function properly internally.

    This watch belonged to a relative of mine and I am thinking of restoring it for sentimental reasons. But it also seems to be an interesting watch. Why the name Missilemaster? What quality is Octo watches? (There are serialnumbers.) The design seems to be from the seventies. The dial says 25...
