Hello guys, new to the watch world, recently bought a lot of old watch parts by accident when i fell in love with an old watch makers chest at auction & had absolutely no idea what to do with it all.
Cabinetry Chest of drawers Drawer Wood Rectangle


Now i'm very interested to learn more and have actually fallen hard for this shiney new world of watches. I Appreciate that there is such a great community for this type of thing.

Thanks for reading and take care :cool:

Hello again Goldencrown21 ! 😀

Holy cow, that is beyond cool to hear honestly. o_O:D

So, you bought this amazing cabinet, but it also had
all kinds of watch parts that were inside too?

Wow, as if the cabinet wasn't beautiful enough, that
must have been a wonderful surprise. 😮 ..It seems
like it was your destiny for you to get interested in this
hobby !

I'm so glad that happened to you, and that you are here.

(y)(y) Hi Goldencrown21 ! :) yes, it really is true, sometimes
things happen, and all of a sudden life can become a whole lot
cooler, and more interesting. 😀I'm really happy for you because
I think you are in for a fantastic adventure.

Yowza, yes, the chest is incredible as well, even without all of
the watch parts !

Enjoy, and hope you really enjoy the hobby, as well as forum !

It's a great hobby... I am known as the local watch guy around where I live since there are no watch guys where I live.
I fix peoples stuff for nothing. Just because I want to see watches on peoples wrists again. Welcome to the forum. I hope you can put some of those pieces/parts to good use.
You wouldn't have to have a crown stem for a early 60's Waltham would you ? Thanks... Enjoy...:)
