    Not sure how the dust got in unless the crown was left open. I would wait until the current crisis is over, take it to a local watch repairer who will be able to remove the movement and clean the...

    For the crystal question tap it with a finger nail, if it feels like plastic then its acrylic but if it feels hard like tapping a piece of glass then it is mineral or sapphire etc.

    She is a carer for her 93 year old Mother and is terrified of passing anything on, so we live in a sterile house, which is fine by me.

    I agree with others, spray it with disinfectant and give a good wipe down as you go. Bonkers in our house, the wife has taken to wiping the shopping down before anyone else is allowed to touch it.

    I love the madness of this place, I'm bored so I will heat up my watch until it changes colour 😂

    I like it Paul, good job, but I wouldn't try it on a Rolex though.

    This is effectively the final posting in the story. The watch arrived back today and I am rather chuffed with it. Oliver and James have done a superb job and the bracelet from the vintage donor watch...

    Dreadful places and if they don't recover from the current crisis I won't shear a tear. I have been in with a friend for a pint and some lunch at 12:00 on a Monday and there isn't a seat available in...
