I hope this message finds you well.

 

I’ve discovered that youtube.com has an incredible number of videos on clock and watch oddities and on repairs of both.  Here are few that I came across, which you may enjoy:

 

  1. Jaeger Lecoultre Gyrotourbillon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWdlPMQlig4&feature=related

 

  1. Nearly 1000 Clocks Chiming at Once! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tidoValXtiw&feature=related

 

  1. THE MEDIEVAL CLOCK - The Oldest working clock in existence http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UKlVaGwJ78&feature=related

 

  1. Eternal Tools' revolutionary watch repair tools http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jTKNLjLrNM

 

  1. Patek Philippe - Birth of a Legend       http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dwBk7-uPmc&feature=related

 

  1. Watch Repair in Microgravity http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2L0g7zNVWQo

 

 

Once you see one video, there are dozens of related videos from which to choose on that web page.  Have fun!

 

 

Here’s a photo of a movement from a verge fusee pocket watch I just picked up made by James McCabe, a fairly well-known British watchmaker (and the related company) that was in business from the late 18th to late 19th century in London.  This particular watch is from 1828.

The next couple of workshops, or more, will focus on the creation of a staff, stem, or other part (or repair) using the lathe.  Be sure to bring your lathe with you if you are interested in honing your skills in the use of the lathe.

 

Have a great weekend and I look forward to seeing you all at the next workshop.

 

Best regards,

Dave
