Here is another Tourbillon with multiple complications that came in. It had a few unique problems so I’ll post this one.

This one has some […] Read more – ‘Tourbillon + Complications Repair’.

  Had a pair of double barrels come in for service. One had an out of round escape wheel. I was fishing for a while as newer pieces tend to not have this problem to often.

Double Barrel and Multiple Retrogrades
Here is a double barrel timepiece with a wonderful engine turned dial that came in with problems that would certainly get past most trained Watchmakers.

Double Barrel / Perpetual Calendar Retrograde / Reserve DeMarche / Complicated Watch Repair
A double barrel timepiece with retrograde functions and perpetual calendar on the retrogrades is quite a complication. In mechanical terms this complication combination on a timepiece only 40 years ago would have taken the finest Master Watchmakers all trapped in a little room separate from the normal factory years to accomplish, by hand. Each piece […] Read more – ‘Double Barrel / Perpetual Calendar Retrograde / Reserve DeMarche / Complicated Watch Repair’.

Eterna Madison Spherodrive
Our Swiss friends at Eterna research and development have discovered an entirely new way to mount the barrel.

The collaborative efforts of AP and JZ simply changed an […] Read more – ‘Audemars Piguet and Jay Z’.
GyroTourbillon
If you have severe arthritis, I’m not quite sure sitting at a Watchmaker bench and playing with the tourbillon cage on this Jaeger Le Coultre is for you.

Rolex oyster perpetual
When working on ladies Rolex Oyster Perpetuals it calls for extreme patience due to the smaller size of the movements parts.
