    setting issues

    What's going on with date set function? clutch lever? clutch wheel? stem? aliens? Anyone on this? (Uh, everyone please . . .)

    A, what about a picture of the kid wearing the watch?

    Confession: I had never fully reviewed Aditya's blog page untill recently. Once again, blowed away by the capabilities of forum member.

    Enjoy: A Watchmaker's Diary

    Re: setting issues

    There is a wheel missing, also. Or maybe it was removed for the photo?
    Never mind, I went back and it was in a previous picture.

    Gee, that was insightful, Rob. (Did the caffeine wear off?)

    Re: setting issues and other stuff

    I'm travelling to India soon.
    Anybody knows where can I get vintage pocket watches (Longines, Roskopf, etc) and wristwatches in good working condition?

    I'm going to be travelling a lot, and expect to spend some time in some of the biggest cities (Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, etc)

    Thanks in advance

    I will answer the few questions I have received on email soon.

    And thanks for making a plug for my blog. Writing a blog is a lonely and thankless job, appreciation always makes it worth it

    Hello bali2002,

    I wish I could help you. I get most of my watches from evilbay. The rest have been given to me by friends & relatives.

    I don't know . . . He looks like a future sales manager for an AD practicing his sales pitch (and close)!

    Great looking kid! Thanks for sharing.

    p.s. There's still "room" on the tour.

    The caption for this photo should simply be "Meh."
