Au cours d’une restauration de montre de poche je suis tombé sur un cas rare de dents totalement usées par les frotements. Cette usure prématurée est due à la lubrification des dents du rouage par le précédent horloger. @diderot_horlogerie #horlogerie #watches #watchmakingschool

Lesson 57: Travellwatch. Casio Protrek 6600 PRW a lovely ABC watch. Not my everyday choice as I am in love with the mechanical watches but as fuction over form when travelling or roaming in the woods this tough’n’rough watch with this absolutely lovely nato strap is my goto travel and hiking watch. 🐺. . . . . #watchstudent #watchmakingstudent #watchfix #watchrepair #watchschool #watchmakingschool #watchlover #watches #watchmaking #watchmaker #travelwatch #hikingwatch #casio #protrek #prw6600 #jl_watches 🐺

Lesson 56: Dirt. Watches get dirty over time. But so get workshops. Every pic here has some dirt visible if you check carefully. I lost two really tiny watch parts yesterday (cap jewel and a extremely tiny screw for keyless work) and I realised part of the reason I could not find them was dirt. There was a lot of tiny dirt particles around from every watch of recent and I may have literally missed the part initially because of too much visual information. I do clean my table and I am aware this is important for watch tidiness and overall health. But it also becomes critical when some parts go flying. I wonder what are common bench cleaning routines out there? 🐺. . . . . #watchstudent #watchmakingstudent #watchfix #watchrepair #watchschool #watchmakingschool #watchlover #watches #watchmaking #watchmaker #bench #workbench #dirt #cleaning #cleaningroutine #cleaningroutines #watchcleaning #partsmissing #jl_watches 🐺

Lesson 55: Almost service, definitely a failure. Tried to service a scrap movement Vostok 2209. Dissassembly OK, washing OK, drying part failure because of chalky tap water and some rust appearing in one hour. Oiling - so-so. Assembly - fail. Lost a screw, lost balance cap jewel during oiling. On the positive side the movement started up. The jewel and the must be somewhere near. I hope the feeling is familiar to you guys. 🐺 #watchstudent #watchmakingstudent #watchfix #watchrepair #watchschool #watchmakingschool #watchlover #watches #watchmaking #watchmaker #scrapmovement #vostok2209 #failedservice #lessonlearned #jl_watches 🐺

Lesson 54: Watchmaking. Literally. That’s it - this is first ever complete watch I have made. It is not a revived one from scrapbox. It is not found from flemarket and cleaned/oiled to working condition. It is not bought from an AD. Every part is chosen, ordered and assembled, giving birth to a brand new watch! No logo. Yet. Seagull ST36 movement (ETA 6497-1 clone), the 316L stainless steel case, sapphire crystal, showroom caseback, dial and hands are made in Germany, black calf leather strap aus Großbritannien. My brand is missing. Anyway, I am really happy and content.

Chiseling away at the Orion II design with @rym.design It takes a bit of time and back and forth with tiny details to get it perfect. Right now we’re working out the minutiae of the hands. Then a couple other details and it’s probably ready for prototyping. . . . #watches #orionwatches #design #orionii #microbrandwatch #horologycommunity #watchmakingschool #watchfam #watchgeek #watchnerd #watchporn #cigars #cars #fancy #seattle #vancouver #denver #ifuckinglovewatches #luxurywatches #design #industrialdesign #horology

Nice escapement model from Horia. With adjustable stud, regulator, pallet jewel, banking pin, and even the shock absorber could be oiled.

Back to the former year 1 students, now in the second week of year 2, and back to polishing. The first year is reserved to "master" cases, and bracelets are introduced the first week of the second year. The first style of bracelet to learn is all satin finish - gray and red wheels. No polished links, but a quick intro to polishing via the blades. Here& #039;s Alex working the difficult aspect - ensuring the finish is straight and parallel on every single link. . . . #watches #watchmakingschool #watchrepair #watchmaker #watchmaking #horology #caseandbracelet #casing #watchcase #lititzwatchtechnicum

Lesson53: If it doesn’t fit, it does not fit. A new mineral glass crystal for a century old P.Moser trench watch that arrived today just won’t fit. It looks of correct size. It has nice dome fitting the case nicely. It gves nice authentic look. It feels lovely and even watch seemed to like it because it started up and ran about 15 minutes nicely. But in the end the crystal just won’t fit. It is 0,2mm too small and the crystal edge is too thick to fit that particular case. Hard learned lesson. Feeling smarter now. 🐺 . . . . #watchstudent #watchmakingstudent #watchfix #watchrepair #watchschool #watchmakingschool #watchlover #watches #watchmaking #watchmaker #antiquewatch #antiquewatches #trenchwatch #vintagewatch #vintagewatches #pmoserpocketwatch #pmoser #moserwatches #watchcrystal #bergeon #watchfail #lessonlearned #jl_watches 🐺

Lesson 52: Midnight oil. Traininig oiling and incabloc on-incabloc off for better hand motorics. How long is your best incbloc flight distance? Mine is somewhere between over-the-hills-and-far-away and forever. Hence some training. Also trying to oil properly. Need badly some feedback on how much is enough oil for say the third wheel jewelled pivot? Now I just try to oil it a tiny bit so that I can see it is getting wet.

Lesson 51: Broken mainspring, again. What would wish a watchmaker for good luck in stead of break a leg? Break a mainspring? My Raketa waker that got fixed a few days ago decided to break the waking alarm mainspring. After some investigation it turned out that it was at least third mainspring broken on that alarm system. And at least second on 2610 watch movement for same waker. Either it crappy mainspring design or lack of service. We will see. While I wait new barrel complete from cousins do any of you have experience remaking the mainspring barrel arbor side? It broke ca 20-30 mm from arbor. How did you remake it? 🐺 . . . #watchstudent #watchmakingstudent #watchfix #watchrepair #watchschool #watchmakingschool #watchlover #watches #watchmaking #watchmaker #mainspring #brokenmainspring #vintagewaker #raketa #raketawatch #raketawatches #cousinsuk #jl_watches 🐺

Today is the first day of intense micromechanics - filing. After the shape is cut out oversized, they are introduced to filing, then they file the tool to completion. They have to balance keeping each dimension within tolerance while also keeping the shape as geometric/flat as possible. Here, Brandan is measuring while Braydon is filing. . . . #watches #watchmakingschool #watchrepair #watchmaker #watchmaking #horology #lititzwatchtechnicum #sawta #firstweekofschool #file #filing #micromechanics

Lesson 50: Not all watches are broken. Some of them have empty battery. It was exactly the case for this Esprit running on Miyota 1L40 quartz movent. I got it broken.as a part of my birthdaygiftscrapwatchbox. After replacing the battery and empowering it wirh a black fine calf leather strap, It really got a new life. Now I wonder, what should I do with all the watches I fix. It is actually 5th watch I have brought back from dead or semidead condition. What would you do? 🐺 . . . #watchstudent #watchmakingstudent #watchfix #watchrepair #watchschool #watchmakingschool #watchlover #watches #watchmaking #watchmaker #watchbattery #watchbatteries #watchbatteryreplacement #notbroken #watchstraps #watchstrap #esprit #espritwatch #miyota #miyota1L40 #miyotaquartz #sr621sw #watchesgrowontrees #jl_watches 🐺

Lesson 49: First training service done - going full smiley mode, just like the back of that Raketa waker feeling cleaned oiled and going! I doubt that this service would have passed bench test - the waker hand losing its paint during the ultrasonic, balance jewel incabloc piece flew away somewhere and got replaced from scrap movement and a dented screwhead because of a wrong screwdriver. God knows what else. But on the bright side: First of all the clock is going. And the time gaining error got 20% better and most important of all, I am going to let it wake me up tomorrow. I’ll let you know when I’ll be late for work.

Lesson 48: Heading for full service: Part I - Disassembly and washing. This Raketa waker was running when fully wound about 10 min, then stopped. While running it gained more than a minute a day. Possible fault could be barrel, dirt or anything else. So first l gotta clean and oil it, then assemble and see what happens. Today I disassembled the waker, washed in ultrasonic and dried the parts. More to follow tomorrow.. 🐺 . . #watchstudent #watchmakingstudent #watchfix #watchrepair #watchschool #watchmakingschool #watchlover #watches #watchmaking #watchmaker #raketawatch #raketa2610 #raketawaker #servicetrial #vintagewaker #jl_watches 🐺

Lesson 47: Encountering fears. One of the worst thing that can happen to a watch brought in for service would be if I’d break, bend or distort the hands or install hands back unaligned properly, I think. Because any watch user notices that immediately and that would be really fatal for the trustworthiness for any watchmaker, not to speak of a aspiring one. Of many things I have been training, getting hands to the right alignment has probably the highest failure rate of all training operations so far. Thanks to the tools introduced few lessons ago I regained some confidence and here you are - I feel I got a watch hands properly aligned this time for a ETA6497 clone Seagull ST36 movement. Without breaking too much swet even. I am happy to see every time the seconds hand hit 60 the minute hands hits it right on the marker. Any tips or techinques how do YOU make it work 100% of time?🐺 . . . #watchstudent #watchmakingstudent #watchfix #watchrepair #watchschool #watchmakingschool #watchlover #watches #watchmaking #watchmaker #watchhands #watchdial #watchdials #diy #diywatch #eta6497 #etaclone #seagullst36 #seagull #glowinthedark #fightingdemons #jl_watches 🐺

Any tips or techinques how do YOU make it work 100% of time?🐺 . . .  #watchstudent #watchmakingstudent #watchfix #watchrepair #watchschool #watchmakingschool #watchlover #watches #watchmaking  #watchmaker #watchhands #watchdial #watchdials #diy #diywatch #eta6497 #etaclone #seagullst36 #seagull #glowinthedark #fightingdemons #jl_watches 🐺

Lesson 46: Meeting George Daniels.. on the cover of his book that arrived fresh just today. A 400+ page hardcover full of old school tried and working watchmaking techniques, but also contemporary concepts like co-axial movement which Daniels fathered. Let me know if you have it and if you have found it any good or are there even better resources available? Thank you, @nobswatchmakerfor the idea (Watch tip #99).

Here are the last pictures I will share from school. An eta 7751 we get to work on in the course, and my modified movement holder. I changed the depth of the shallow parts to be able to hold a wider range of movements. I could only hold rather slim movements originally as shown in the last picture. #watchmaker #watchmaking #watchmakingschool #mechanicalwatch #watchesofinstagram #watchmakertool #clockmaking #clockmaker #watchrepair #chronograph #swissmade

Lesson 45: Watch timing with app. I used Timegrapher app to check the timing of that Vostok 2414 Komandirskie that received a new barrel recently. As I suspected there are issues with accuracy. I gotta clean and oil the movement first and see, if it helps with the timing. The graphs itself explain quite a bit and so do daily off rates. Anyway here goes the explanation for the table: First column, watch position, second column off rate sec/day, third column: beat rate off normal. Watch positions explained: CU - crown up, CD - crown down, FU - face up, FD - face down, CL - crown left, CR crown right. These are the six positions we want to check the timing (thank you @nobswatchmakerfor the book). The abbreviations are horologically not correct, but they are easy to remember and techhnically correct. The app is Watch Tuner Timegrapher using a rally green icon. Please let me know if you have information that this app is unfit for checking timing on watches. 🐺 . . . #watchstudent #watchmakingstudent #watchfix #watchrepair #watchschool #watchmakingschool #watchlover #watches #watchmaking #watchmaker #vostokwatches #vostokkomandirskie #vostok2414 #vintagewatch #vintagewatches #watchtiming #watchmakingwithapp #timegrapher #jl_watches 🐺

Lesson 44: Hands-off hands on. Instead of using two pieces of dogwood sticks I now have this advanced tech available. First experiences say it is good and makes outcome more predictable and saves some time. Still need to find out when it is ok to stop pushing, or the hour hand gets pushed against dial. Together with hand removing tools I made earlier I can now go hands on-hands off all day. 🐺 #watchstudent #watchmakingstudent #watchfix #watchrepair #watchschool #watchmakingschool #watchlover #watches #watchmaking #watchmaker #watchmakingtools #steelworks #steel #watchhands #advancedtechnology #handmadetools #jl_watches 🐺

The y1 students are near the end of their oscillator training. In this slo-mo, it is a bit easier to see the balance wheel separate in oscillations from the master oscillator below. Part of the observation is to determine whether the wheel separates sooner or later in order to make a small adjustment to the pinning point. . . . #watchmaker #watchmakingschool #watchmaking #horology #watchrepair #lititzwatchtechnicum #sawta #oscillator #hairspring #vibrating

One of the ways we teach how automatic watches work is to skeletonize the bridge area that normally hides the reversing wheels. Then under the micriscope, projected onto a large screen, the instructor can show and explain the function. It is essential to understand how things work, and just cleaning, oiling and assembling properly is not enough. The complete watchmaker must have comprehensive problem solving abilities. . . . #watches #watchmakingschool #watchrepair #watchmaker #watchmaking #horology #automatic #automaticwatch #lititzwatchtechnicum #problemsolver
