Alison has just finally set up a TAG watch, we have tried all manor of instructions, however, this is the best most comprehensive we have found. Thought I’d share it for anyone that may need it. Enjoy!

A folly of Waltham Pocket watches this week. Made in America from the early twentieth century, their watches had intricate patterns engraved onto the plates. Truly, they are a pleasure to work on.
Just out of interest. The three watches date from: Number 5 million dates 1892. Next, number 21 million ( gold colour ) is from the end of 1917 and number 28 million is from 1934. Waltham made over 35 million pocket watches from their humble beginnings in 1850.. President Abraham Lincoln owned an 1863 model. Enjoy!
What a first full week as a proper full time clockmaker it’s been! I’m finally living my dream and it is lovely.. This Roamer watch was very dirty and grubby before the magic wand was passed over it… ( before and after pics) Thankyou so much for all your support smile emoticon enjoy!

A modern Rotary watch receiving a new movement. The customer came in believing the watch was beyond repair. So, we stripped the watch down, checked for and repaired any damages before thoroughly cleaning the entire piece to bring back its ‘new’ look.
The customer was amazed with the result and is back to wearing the watch again on a daily basis.
