    He does take a while, that's true. He's not working from outside the house in Elstree any more either, so I need to get myself over to his new gaff in Bushey this time.

    I have this problem from time to time, and it normally requires that I re-select my Time Machine as the backup drive. Don't know why it happens, though.

    As an aside I also back up all my files on...

    Tha is very much. I donít intend giving anyone a hard time over it, and thanks for confirming what I should expect.

    I understand that, Paul. Can you just advise me what I should expect to be done before the watch is returned to me?

    Thanks. It was bloody annoying and seemingly a pretty unusual thing to happen. I canít fault Steveís response, but Iíd just like to speak to him tomorrow from a slightly more informed position.

    Thatís the kind of info Iím after, Paul, hence the question. The watch in question is actually my 5513... the handover didnít go as smoothly as anticipated and Steve has now confirmed that he needs...
  16. Watch servicing question for our watchmakers (and the technically minded)

    If a movement was disassembled, fully serviced, assembled again and then fully tested, and then the mainspring broke, what would need to be done after replacing the mainspring such that the watch was...

    There won't be much to see as I'm barely touching the case. I've just asked for a light refinish to the graining on the top of the lugs but that's about it. The watch only has a few light hairlines...

    Well, some 5 months later I'm popping over to Bushey later this morning to pick up my watch. It's been a bloody long wait, and I'll be very happy indeed to have it back!
