    Recently I was passed down this watch and found the movement rusted inside, so I wanted to see if it was possible to get it running again. Well horrifyingly I went to a watch repair shop and they said they can add a new movement inside which would be similar to the old one. When I visited...

    Hi folks, I've got a ladies Edox quartz watch on the workbench currently with a non-running movement. I've resorted to repairing ladies watches now so I don't have the temptation to keep them after repairing it. The movement itself, the gears and date complication, all seem to work fine. The...

    I recently bought a Citizen bn0085-01e professional diver in the Bahamas and noticed that a couple days later the second hand was binding the minute hand. I opened ed it and noticed that I could lift the movement up slightly so I did that and tweeted the second hand up ever so slightly. What...

    Looking for some advice here. Just got in Gigandet regatta watch and all works well...except the sweep second hand resets at just a mm past 12 o'clock and when the chronograph is activated...the sweep second hand stops just shy of 12 o'clock. If I tap the crystal...sometimes it jolts forward...

    Hello, I'm new on this website and this is my first post, and I'm posting because I have just acquired my first vintage watch. It's a Moeris Tramway pocket watch (Pictures are provided) and it seems to my eyes (I'm no expert, of course) to be in fairly good condition, but it doesn't work. I've...

    Hi gang, My trusted watchmaker recently told me he can't work on a certain watch that I need serviced, and while I do appreciate someone who knows their limitations, I still need to find an alternative. So in perusing WUS, we have our Sales Corner, and we have a place for strap makers to ply...

    Hi All, I'm relatively new to the forum (my other post is about buying a new watch... I'm still figuring that out) and was hoping to get some help deciding what to do with an old Sandoz watch I know very little about. A number of years ago I was in Switzerland on a tight budget. The last day...

    Some weeks ago I did something I have now come to regret: instead of sending a perhaps novel, but movement-wise generally ubiquitous, watch to my certified Rolex repair man in upstate New York, I searched for a new repair center locally. I work/live as an Attorney in Long Island/Manhattan...

    Hi there, I have my grandfathers watch and I could not identify the model of the watch. It is currently broken, and I was wondering if it was worth to repair it. It look pretty beat up, and it doesn't require a battery to operate. Thanks

    I have an Omega Speedy Pro 3570.50 that I had serviced a year ago this month. Since then, it has ran at +2 seconds/day which I considered to be pretty good. I accidentally dropped it the other week and now it is running at -2 minutes. I took it in to my local master watch maker and they informed...
