    My Xmas Pressies

    You've already seen my Speedmaster, https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/new...er-624695.html which was a project present from my retiring watchmaker/mentor/friend,

    Merry Christmas Horst!

    Here is a small selection of the rest of the stuff that I got from Horst that were partially bought as a christmas present, which my wife doesn't yet know she's given to me :

    Nice truing caliper



    Box of PW sub-seconds (hard to find)


    Depthing Gauge



    Pivot drill



    Poising jaws



    Screw under cutter?



    Jewel Bezel tools



    3rd hand for balance work. Not sure how to use the holes/clamp arrangement on the base though.



    Nice Brass Spring gauge



    Fantastic oiler



    Remove oiler, up pops the lid all ready! This is coooool.



    Cleaning machine



    Case back remover



    Cabinet of glass crystals



    Actually there is more, such as a jewel pivot gauge etc., but camera is out of batteries.

    Merry Xmas all.

    Only my watchmaker has this much stuff! .... but I'd rather he keep working than retire and give it to me
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Sadly he can no longer see well enough.

    Personally I would love to buy his whole shop, but unfortunately my wife has put her foot down.

    Sometimes I wish wives did not have feet

    It's Xmas where you live already? Haha. Nice equipment though. It'll be a ton of fun using each new piece I'd imagine.
