It was YOU that started all my interest in doing more with my watches than wearing them , in about 2000 u did a post on how to remove the bezel on a watch and refinish the lugs and I thought ? WOW , what an amazing job , I want to be able to do THAT one day , and that was when the real passion started , so I blame you completely !!!!!

And for that ??

The worls BIGGEST Thank YOU , I started the journey the next day and it's given me more pleasure (and FRUSTRATION) than any other thing I've ever tried , also helped me get past some horrible times u can't imagine

Diversional therapy is kick ass

Your a legend big fella

Bought on the bay for my 100th feedback , seems a bloke cheated on his wife and this was her good morning to him after >>>



I believe a HAMMER was her tool, of choice , what floated my boat was that it was a 1965 (bad year I was born in 65) and I even think that post you did was a 1675 also , anyway it took me 2 years to finish her but in the end this was the result >>>





And with more of Jocke's DIY a few combo's >>>



Thanks again Jocke

I take my hat off to you both, for the excellence of your work

And for having the patience to work with such small fiddly things

Regards

Tony
