    Re: WUSF6 Watchmakers of the World Watch Tour

    Greetings all!

    Officially added to the 'list' yesterday and could not be more excited for my date with this little lady. Where is the watch now?

    I have been brainstorming some photo ideas that would show the watch in my town. Luckily photography just happens to be my wife's favorite hobby.

    All:

    Rik was having some trouble posting pictures, so I'm doing that for him. Rik has timed the watch properly, and added a goldfilled crown to match the case.

    New crown looks great Rik: I don't see any witchisi results - how did the timing go, and what adjustments were needed? What can you tell the group about your shop, tools, tenure, or advice?

    Thanks,

    Howdy I use a Vibrograf MU700 I did take pictures of the timing procedure and will forward them along I have to download to photobucket and have figured how to get them here. Well the etachron adjustment was set backwards so set the reg pin centered the spring and timed to about 2 seconds a day fast. My shop is a full Rolex Omega and many others shop. I have parts accounts for pretty much all companies that sell to watchmakers. I am CW 21 certified and am going to Miami in august for the Omega Service Provider Course a one week course. Over the years I have bought out over thirty retired and passed away watchmakers and have more antique parts than most parts houses. I have 4 watchbenches a jewelers bench and very large clock bench. I have enough tools to outfit at least 5 watchmakers. I have a new german hydralic watch bench with vacuum system coming a new X1 chronscope timing machine a diablic E vacuum tester and at that point 20 g's later I won't be buying anything for a while. As far as advice goes I love what I do so to me it's not work. I work at home so 14 hour days are the norm and yes I do have a life I am also a licensed Coast Guard Captain and dive and fish when I can don't do many charters anymore except for friends and relatives. If you like watches and fixing them join a local guild take classes read and study and practice and get certified. If there are no local guilds start one as a subsidiary of The American Watch and Clock Institute they will help you get one started. That's how I got going and it was an invaluable source of information. On average I service 15 to 20 Rolexes a week plus 25 other brands from movement swaps to cells and watertests and details. and about 3 to 5 clocks a week as well. Well that covers most of it so if you all have any questions I am and always have been an open book. Thanx for letting me be part of the WUSF6 world watch tour. Rik

    Enjoying this thread a lot and glad the watch landed in The Netherlands and was in the good hands of Ron for awhile. Looking forward to the continuing story.

    The little ugly duckling has landed back in the Great White North, ticking away to beat the band.

    I'll find some time in the next few days to take a closer look and flesh out some ideas for it, everyone will be updated as appropriate.
