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.

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.

Twlight Drone says:

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.

Cody Rucker says:

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

Javed Khan says:

I have Oris automatic watch can you service it ?

ged mcgaffin says:

Thanks from a untrained watch enthused man. Your vids are what folks like myself find utterly wonderful. Keep it real.

Chipped on the dial at 2 and rusty hand.

kim swee Lye says:

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.

Animal Crossing forever says:

 I am a bit of a watch nerd I^_^I But thinking about repairing one would scare me to death lol!

kim swee Lye says:

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.

Marius Sonnenwirth says:

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.

Nate Blubaugh says:

@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!

Nate Blubaugh says:

Are you wearing your Hamilton Khaki watch in this video.
