    I serviced this watch for you February 2013.
    You did not ask for water testing, saying that you rarely wear it. It would have been no problem to do so, although this would have...

    Thank you. Most appreciated.
    The base calibre Valjoux 72 is a real watchmakers watch. Straightforward to service and without a vicious reset of the chronograph hand, unlike many others such as the...

    That IS funny ! At least I was half listened to !
    Probably not too late as well. I'm sure I still have a few Seiko crowns to fit your watch.

    Thank you.
    I am very moved and humbled by all your comments. Back in 1968, I got into watchmaking rather by accident. I had planned to train as an Airline Pilot, but my parents were in a road crash,...

    That is painful. Rolex tend to use quite a soft stainless steel alloy, judging from how easy they are to refinish.

    I will do that over the autumn.

    It is indeed JL. And dated 1855. And earlier than we thought.
    Unfortunately the bell I found is a bit dull. I will have to buy one.

    Last Car Boot Weekend until Spring

    I wasn't going to bother this morning. It was pitch black at 6.30am, but I thought why not ? Have a coffee and stop looking like the living dead and get out there. I'm glad I did.

    Your assumption is incorrect, the photo was taken after cleaning and part reassembly on request from my customer. Your implications are therefore a little offensive.
