I received this Elgin 18s from 1889 in need of restoration. Look at her run like it was made yesterday.
I had a customer bring me her husbands Marine ring that was in need of repair. As you can see from the picture the emblem was just hanging on and it would spin around. After soaking the ring to remove the old epoxy, I then used my Orion Welder to weld two new prongs on the back of the emblem and then add new epoxy to secure the emblem in place.
I received this pocket watch in the mail. Its an Annex Pocket Watch with a Unitas Movement from the early 1980’s. This watch was not running at all until I removed the second had and it started right up. It still need a good service done to it to keep proper time. Below is the results from the service I performed to get it running like new.
It has been a while since I have posted anything on my Blog so I plan to be more active. I will not only be posted watch repairs, but I will also post Clock repairs, Jewelry Repairs and also jewelry design and fabrication. Below is a carved onyx signet ring that was in touch shape, the onyx was loose and the gold was scratch up. I burnished the metal around the onyx and this got rid of the rattling that the customer would hear from it and I polished this ring to a mirror shine.
I receive this Swiss Helbros 24 Hour Watch from a gentleman who told me his parents bought this for him while he 17 years old in the military. When I received it it needed a new crystal, minute hand, and second hand. The watch had radioactive lamination both on the old watch hands and the dial.
Broken radioactive hands
Finished and looking pretty good.
