    Haha thanks man!! Would you prefer to see it in a video context or do you like to read it? We are planning to do at least one more like these!

    Either for me! I can imagine it would take a lot of work and setting up to video everything properly. Just nice close-up photos documenting what you've done and the notes to go with it is probably easier. I'm pretty skilled with my hands, but working on watches is something I'd like to do, but have never done. So seeing how you work through things is really interesting!!!!

    I nearly missed the new post!!!
    Great work on the dial. I've got an early Tudor Oyster Royal in for a service at the moment and that has a few marks on the dial which will hopefully clean up. I can't wait to see how it. It looks like yours is nearly finished now!!!
