Mechanical watch repair


  • Member

    I have a mechanical watch that has had the automatic winding weight come loose. From what I can tell by looking through the glass caseing, it is just screwed on with tiny, tiny threading. Sending it in would cost at least $150 but that is more than im willing to spend on this watch. So does anyone have watchmaking tools and/or expertise to try to help fix it?

    it’s the semi-circular piece at the top of the watch.

    I can have a look, I was a watchmaker in a previous life in montreal. I’m in vancouver for a few days but I can have a look when I return.

    @DCHydro Thank you. That would be great.



  • If DCHydro can’t fix it, talk to the jeweler at National Pawn (250-554-7700). I’ve seen him work miracles on mechanical things.
