    Hello everyone

    Hi all.

    Just joined. Thanks for sharing an opportunity.

    I am from India, and a teacher of English and Psychology.

    Started collecting watches since last 10 years...And now have started learning how to repair as well.
    Currently own almost 40 watches and more than 20 are antiques.

    Thanks again for allowing me... Cheers to all.

    so what others you got
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    looks nice and I guess it's quite easy to get parts where you are as I see a lot of swiss brands coming out of India now

    I cleaned and fixed it. The Hairspring had issue.

    Unable to clean the watch face as it's Hand painted. So don't want to damage it.

    But I think... My oldest yet will be a Ricoh.

    Goes back to 50's
