Re: Gruen Doctors, my latest project...

Cleaned up very well! I have owned so many Gruen watches over the years but surprisingly no doctor's or quadrons or really any of the deco wristwatches I have come to the conclusion that there is actually a lot of variety in the personality types of folks who like and work on watches. I have met man...

Re: Seiko Classic Diver

Nice! Seiko is the place to start if you are into the stainless watch with screwback case. Lots of variety, affordable parts, and easily serviceable. Can't beat that!

Re: gentlemans and ladies watches show them off!!

Jerry, I assume my sterling Gruen with the exploding numerals is slightly earlier than the examples you posted but this is just a suspicion.. I really don't know. I have this keywind/keyset movement that was put into a stemwind case. The guy had his key highly modified and soldered to the stemwind (...

Re: What Swiss movement is this ?

These types of watches can be difficult to ID. I was thinking roskopf or Medana at first glance but wasn't able to confirm at all. Sometimes under the dial will be a hallmark to assist in the process of identifying. There are numerous manufactures who made similar watches which makes it a challenge ...

Seiko Classic Diver

There has been little to no Seiko action here at VWF ever since Ninja disappeared.. I thought I would post a nice example of their classic 6105 diver There are two interesting features that make this example standout from the rest... 1st The watch was found with the bezel insert installed quite poor...

Re: Bulova Accutron repair or replacement

Spike, if you are looking at used movements for your Bulova you will eventually have to have it serviced. Old quartz watches need servicing just like mechanical watches. The seller of the movement you are interested in is telling you that he does not know how the movement will perform in the long ru...

Re: Here's one you don't see everyday

That is a very cool case.. I have never seen one like it (in multi-color). I can only remember seeing these cyclist cases in silver case or niello style
Thanks for sharing!

Re: IWC Schaffhausen Cal 853

I have never seen one of these in person so I have no first hand experience with this watch.. I have worked on a ton of Seikos that use a similar auto system and it is quite efficient
There are some decent youtube videos showing the pellaton winding system in action
Congrats on a nice watch!
