Time to Clean House

Selling old watches and parts

Well, it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted and that’s because I’ve been mulling a whole new approach to this watchmaking hobby of mine.

It started out simply enough- get myself an Omega Speedmaster cheap, but it ballooned into a job that has frankly caused me more anxiety that glee.  I’ve accumulated so many rubbish watches and watch movements that I don’t really know what to do with them all. I’d buy one to fix and another for parts, then think to myself, “You know, I’ll bet you could fix both of these…” and well there you go.

So I’m dropping all of my stock of old watches and watch movements on eBay.  Right now I’m working my way through the stuff that I haven’t had a chance to repair and those things that probably never should get repaired.  There will be quite a bit of old chronograph pieces coming online soon so keep an eye out.  When it’s all said and done I hope to only have one or two watches left on my desk and the rest of the drawers will be empty; after that, it’s time to start anew.
