I have turned on some of Google's new Community moderation features for this Community. We have not had much of a problem with spam here, but I wanted to try out the new features anyway. As a result some posts might be "held for review" and not appear here right away. I should get to them, to review and release appropriate posts, within a day are so though.

This is an interview with Jeanôt de Graaf. A knowledgeable and nice guy with an amazing collecting. I dare say he has the sweetest Longines collection I've seen offline and online. I hope you'll like it and perhaps learn a thing or two.

This is my latest article on how to polish acrylic watch crystals. These crystals are often used in your vintage watch from the late 30's onward so there's a good chance the majority in your collection has them.

No need for panic when you see a scratch or visit the watchmaker. Just polish it yourself ;)
For watch collectors, a scratch on the watch crystal is serious business! This is an article on how to remove scratches and polish a watch crystal.

What do you think, sometimes there's beauty in old age ?

Here's one of my old watch & pocket watch collection from years ago, which sadly i had to sell part of through Lockdales a couple of years ago.
It from George Clarke of London dated to early/mid Victorian England, from 1856, it's a super fully jeweled fusee lever, it also has a beautiful intricate dust cover that matches the balance cock.
It needed restoring when i first bought it, but with a new fusee chain & mainspring fitted, a good clean & oil of all the parts, then a polish up of the case which was really dirty when i purchased it originally many years ago, i did not even know the hinges were gold until i cleaned it up. Turned out rather well in the end & was a lovely working timepiece with a strong deep enchanting tick. But sadly i could not keep on maintaining them all so had to drastically reduce my collection as it outgrew the space i have in my small flat. nowadays i keep it trim by selling a few every so often.
I hope you like it, if so let me know & i'll i'll post others occasionally. Its a super hobby & any men/women young/old who are interested should keep it up & spend a bit of time & effort it will be wonderfully rewarding for you , thanks from bazchap
