Any reccomedations of guidelines, practice watches, or books?
I've heard stories of anything between 4 and 16 weeks. Does anyone have any experience?
Does anyone know of any good honest watch repairers in the UK ?
Preferably around the Manchester or Stamford area, would be better if I could wait for the repair to be done there & then etc.
Apparently the 'date wheel spring' has snapped, so the date doesn't change as it should ie every 24 hrs ....
Or is this a job that can done by myself ?
Thanks in advance..
I want a major in computers, but the math required is too difficult for me. I can probably get to trig and that's all. At first I wanted to become a Computer Repairer, but it the job growth rate is too low in 10 yrs, as well Video Game Design. All I know how to do is build a PC, and I have an A+ certification from high school. I feel I might end up as a nothing and took classes in college for nothing. I use my computer everyday all day and night for mostly games, watching movies, and hw if needed. I have no life. I can sit by a computer all day if I'm doing something that interests me. I am also shy, so my communication skills is horrible. Computer Science needs Calculus, and I can't do it. I don't want to waste my time taking classes that I don't need or else I won't graduate with an AA degree. Again, I can probably only reach trig or statistics. Please help.
I have cracked my front screen has anybody replaced it,And how much will it cost
I am a qualified watch repairer seeking employment
What with the resurgence in popularity of both modern/new and vintage mechanical watches, since the 80s, there has been a renewed demand for watchmakers(people who restore and/or repair mechanical watches).
As we all know this is a mysterious world to most and even to those who understand it somewhat, they develop an appreciation of the service thy are getting.
Unfortunately most watchmakers(even the best) study only 2year course, even at WOSTEP school of watchmaking in Switzerland.
So, it is not the four year "degree"/piece of paper that border or customs officials are looking for.This presents a problem to watchmakers because theirs is considered a vocational diploma/trade certificate.
Ironically the watchmakers are MUCH more skilled and add MUCH more value than some paper pusher would to his country of immigration/destination.But because they don't hold that vaulted "degree/worthless piece of paper", they can't get in!
The value addition part-watchmakers are needed to maintain mechanical watches, which add nearly 60?f value to the watch industry.If servicing were not available, nobody/their-target demographic would not buy these watches.I mean if you bu ya watch for 3000$ and there isn't anyone to service it for 300?you would rather buy a quartz watch, isn't it?This would result in job losses for many sales persons, managers, micro-engineers, managers and so on.All because watchmakers couldn't be let in because of a stupid visa clause.
Don't you think this is unfair?Do you people of the world, think watchmakers(if certified/properly skilled) should be given work visas the way highly skilled people are?
@ Lisa A and other guy
Not everyone who can flip your battery in that casio G-shock at the nearest strip mall is a watchmaker.You see those high street retailers selling Mechanical watches with in house movements worth a few thou?The guys servicing those when they have a broken gear or cam or need a fluid change are real "watchmakers"...and according to NYtimes, the avg age for watchmakers is nearing 70..that means if they are not gone, they are retiring soon.
Even those are barely a few today, even in america, a country of 310 mil+..talk about what you know
Sometimes no one is there? And other times, one man is working and about 10 others are standing around watching him? For this stuff traffic is rerouted and tied up?
Another on the highway is ' Slow down and prepare to stop '....and nothing is up ahead at all.
Wind up watch can it be converted to a battery watch

It's very unfortunate to have a disability. Some people take for granted the gifts we have naturally
I am currently a AH-64 Attack Helicopter Repairer (15R) in the Utah ARNG. I was thinking of going Cavalry Scout as soon as possible. Would that be possible to pull off. and is that a good Combat mos. i want to try something exciting and challenging.
What kinda jobs are there in the military for weapons maintenance, cleaning just anything of that sort I've talked to a marine recruiter he said something about armory position but didn't go in much detail I've talked to a army recruiter too he kinda blew off my questions though told me to take some test and go on a goarmy.com but it didn't really answer much
I'm drawing a character, and I don't know what he should do; as a job of course. If I got the idea of that, I could figure the rest out.
If you can add anything more about a personality, I'd SOOO appreciate it!
I love airplanes i love aircraft I love anything that flies I mean who doesn't? I would LOVE a job flying air planes, I'm not real into commercial jets im more or a prop plane person.
my question is... What are some jobs that would allow me to fly prop planes???
Just some background... Im 19 years old, I go to college at USC (aviation degree not offered) and I am in the SC Army National Guard, my MOS is 15T which is a blackhawk helicopter repairer so i have worked on helicopters. I don't plan on making a career in the Army I never planned to but its always a consideration especially in these economic times... But I know there is more money to be made in the civilian world just have to try harder.
Human Intelligence Collector (35M), Small Arms/Artillery Repairer (91F), Health Care Specialist (68W). Also which one is the most safe when deployed?
I am not joining to pay for college (although it is a benefit) or just to say "Hey look at me Im a US Soldier" (Ive heard it done) and I know that the military is dangerous by nature. I am joining because I want to serve my country. I will be in the Army National Guard so that I may have a career outside the military and that is why I want to know which is safest. When I get deployed I want a higher chance of going home to continue on with my life and I will have actually earned the right to live and work in this country unlike those who take it for granted.
Thank you to all of the other men and women who serve this amazing country.
The Toshiba TV in my classroom will not turn on. Each time we push the power button, the green light will come on for about 15 seconds, then it will turn off on its own. Could this be a fuse inside the TV, or is it something more serious? It is a 2009 model, so the warranty is no longer in affect. Please help me because our class (Pre-K) is DYING to watch the Alphabet DVD and VHS tapes lol. Thanks in advance!
It's a flat screen lol...
I enlisted in the army reserves but i need to go active now. i have tried to talk to my recruiter but he doesn't want to reason with me. i tried to talk to the unit commander but they need soldier with my MOS which is 91c (supply equipment repairer) so he doesn't want to release me. i have NOT been through boot camp/ait yet. so could i do a spiff change myself? or maybe through some other recruiter or MEPS? what are my options?
please serious answer, this is very important
all i want to do is serve my country in the army's active duty
