One of these days I will list the books here.
Thanks! Share it with your friends!
I'm curious to know what kind of wrist watch you have, and is it mechanical and do you work on it yourself? Thank you for your video. Sounds like good resource materials.

Enjoyed this video. My journey has started similar to yours. I bought a 1928 Elgin Pocket Watch at our local Antique Market. Then while in the book store, I found the Complete Watch Guide Book (2016). Based on your video, I found a copy of The Watch Repairer's Manual by Fried. I want to start with cleaning my pocket watch. It runs. And it is in fair condition.
We don't need to stinking wrist watches…blech…..Pocket Watches ONLY for me that is..
Like yourself I purchased pocket watches and have wanted to learn how to repair them – I have accumulated a collection of basic tools and am looking for books to help me learn- I very much appreciated your videos and advice

The Cooksey book 2016 is my first watch book. Got it last week. I too didn't know what I was getting. It's very helpful. . I'm trying to be a shade tree watch repair guy : ) Family and friends. I wouldn't hire myself out to fix someone watch. : ) I have been enjoying your youtube channel. And I thank you.
Thanks so much for your guidance, I have come a long way this past year just by watching your videos. As a Railroader its about the history. Thanks again.
Love your videos man. I'm a amateur watch repair guy too. I love everything about them. They are my therapy and calm me down. Keep the videos coming
I have Oris automatic watch can you service it ?
Thanks from a untrained watch enthused man. Your vids are what folks like myself find utterly wonderful. Keep it real.
Does anyone know if the "Complete Price Guide to Watches" also includes the Roskopf pocket watches?

Chipped on the dial at 2 and rusty hand.
Hi Bunn, I'm so happy that I've got my first watch to tick and runs. All worth while waiting for tools and parts to arrive. Now my Waltham is ticking. Changed a new dial, main spring, minute and hour hand. Thanks to your videos.
I am a bit of a watch nerd I^_^I But thinking about repairing one would scare me to death lol!
I've just ordered the Watch Repairer's Manual by Henry B. Fried. Look thru the TM 9-1575 Ordnance Maintenance Wrist Watch. Lots more to read. I've a few vintage pocket watch and it's difficult to get service here. Probably have to do it myself.
nice job,I Iike your videos.It is very interesting, just to bad that we live in the quartz era watches, that are cheap to buy, and throw them away and mvt are made in far east countries.Even Seiko watches are no longer the same.
@jason hazelwood, I couldn't agree more, for those of you watchmakers out there, when somebody brings a watch in that they broke trying to repair don't put them down, because those amateurs could maybe someday become the next great watchmaker maybe even own there own company or invent a new escapement. So if someone does come in with a watch that they broke trying to fix, give them constructive criticism or teach them DON'T PUT THEM DOWN!
Are you wearing your Hamilton Khaki watch in this video.
Excellent video Mr. Bunn for those of us always looking for better reading material on horology. You have give me some valuable information. Keep up the excellent work. Wondering if you are a member of IHC forum. Excellent material in the forum. Mostly on pocket watches.
