Not taking on any new work at the moment

Due to family circumstances I am not taking on any new repair work at this time.

Maurice Lacroix Repair. New Movement. Video.

This video shows how a repaired a faulty Maurice Lacroix watch by replacing the malfunctioned movement with a new one.

This watch uses the ETA 251.262 movement which you will typically find in high grade quartz chronograph watches. For example: Tag Heuer, Breitling Colt. and in this case, Maurice Lacroix.

This movement utilises a 1.5v silver oxcide battery, has a calendar mechanism, an off centre seconds hand and the chronograph sports split seconds, seconds, minutes, and hour recording for up to 12 hours.

Vintage Rolex Repair. Fitting a new balance staff video.

This video shows how I replaced a broken balance staff on this vintage Rolex watch.

The old balance staff had a broken bottom pivot, preventing the watch from functioning. The watch was fully stripped, the repair carried out to the balance, and then cleaned and then re-assembled with correct lubrication.
