I thought that this might provide some inspiration for those who are making tic toc work or considering going into watch repair.

Discovering the mysteries of brass copper and hard wood is only half the thrill, combining them together in a useful bit or bauble is the real treasure.

When this was dicusssed at the end of last year we were fascinated that the basic bits of this golden oldie were fairly similar in principle to current pocket watches. markf,19534.0.html

They are phenomenal pieces of engineering!
