I am switching from clock repair to watches at 60 years of age. This is going to be a awesome journey. Thank you for taking the trouble to make the series.

I have been watching your channel all day. I have always been facinated by everything mechanical, including watches. I love to take things apart to find out how they work, and if needed repair them. I actually often buy things that doesn't work, and take great pride in fixing them.
So naturally I have bought a few cheap Seiko 5's on ebay. They said they were in good working order, but you know, 3 watches for $50 is pushing it…
The 6309 just needed to be regulated, and I did it with just a leatherman and a stopwatch, and it has been running within 4-5 seconds a day since that. I was actually really pleased with getting that one good watch for $50, so the other two, (both 7009) was put in a drawer, one I could just get going for 4-5 minutes at a time, and the other was over a full hour off after a day… But after watching you make it look so simple with a movement enlarged over my 50" screen I got some inspiration and thought "I can do this, can't be that hard?" And then 20 minutes later with the oscillating assembly thingy in the tweezers thinking "this was a bad Idea, I'll never get this back together" But I just got on trying, and after about 40 minutes I had successfully swapped oscillating assembly from the non working watch over to the way to fast watch. a couple small adjustments after that it runs within 1 second in 2 hrs. good enough for a watch I had written off…
Theres no better feeling that the one you get by diving head first into a repair and succeeding. This won't be my last cheap used automatic off ebay..

David Cavallero says:

I would love a lesson on how to identify and install a different movement to a watch. Since there are many high quality watch cases and bracelets, with $10.00 movements, I believe there is a fair amount of interest in how to measure and adapt a different movement than that which originally came with the watch.

Richard Sherwin says:

Excellent. Now need to find lesson no 2

I just found your channel and I love it, I binge watched the whole thing over the weekend, great stuff. I was wondering if you have ever built/modified a watch and could we see it? Thanks

BTW, please include as extensive as possible lessons or demonstrations on your excellent Favorite friction jeweler tool. It has so much to offer and there are so few references out there!

SnowmansApartment says:

im really interested in repairing watches. Never did it, but certainly want to learn it. But what i also find extremely interesting, is building a whole new watch from skratch. Will learning repairing watches bring me closer to that small dream to some day, far in the future build my own watch?:)
