I found your community while searching for some parts for a Seiko Bell-Matic restoration project. I'm a hobbyist watch repairer working out of my basement shop in southern NJ (near Philadelphia). I've been at this hobby for about 3 years now, ever since I inherited a non-running Elgin pocketwatch that belonged to my great-grandfather. After getting that running, I've worked on old Hamiltons, a Gruen, an Omega ladies' watch (tiny!), and my favorite, a Lord-Matic 5206, among others. Oh, and I restored an L&R Master watch cleaning machine too!
Looking forward to being part of the discussion here, and seeing your projects, ideas, and tips.
