Sometimes, we are very tempted to send a watch back, rather than attempt to repair it. The risk for us is pretty high, as we don’t charge for unsuccessful repairs, so we can get stuck with hours and hours spent on a watch without getting any money for our work.
This Breitling looked a bit challenging of first sight … Continue reading
I don’t think I will ever see this in the workshop again. A NOS case with crown, bezel and crystal, dial, and hands for an Omega Seamaster 300, and a movement that is as good as new.
Aitor from Spain is the proud owner of the parts, that will magically transform into a NOS Seamaster 300… Continue reading

I saw this on eBay, and I just had to have it for the workshop!
This wall clock was supplied by Omega to their dealers, and it measure a good 33cm across.
It’s now the pride and glory of our workshop, and hanging on the wall where the old boring radio controlled quartz clock used to be.
This Speedy comes all the way from California, and David has sent it in for a service.
The luminous compound of the hands has darkened considerably over time, and doesn’t match the dial markers any more. Also, when engaging the chronograph, the second hand jumps sometimes. Continue reading
