ZOOM Waltham 1899/1908 Model – Ab Ovo Usque Ad Mala Part 2
New England Chapter 8 Zoom Meeting, Wednesday, June 16, 2021 7:30 PM EST

Please join us on Wednesday evening, June 16, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. to listen to Chris Carey discuss the Waltham 1899/1908 Model pocket watch.

Because pocket watches are fun, Chris Carey will present this second in a three-part series of practical classes on the repair of the Waltham 16 size model 1899/1908 pocket watch. The series is aimed at the novice, hobbyist, and others who are interested in learning to repair antique pocket watches or just want to gain an understanding of how they work.
In this second part, he will discuss the mainspring and barrel, the train and motion works, the balance, the escapement, replacing a balance staff, balance end-shake, closing worn bushings, then in the third session of this series of Zoom meetings, Chris will work interactively with participants who want to try to dismantle and assemble one of these watches step-by-step at home. This will be a great collaborative series for those just starting out in watch collecting, repair, and maintenance.

Chris Carey Profile

Chris Carey was taught watch repair as a boy by his grandfather, Pat Caruso, a watchmaker at Waltham Watch. In 1993 he opened his own clock and watch repair shop, Watertown Watch and Clock, and now operates the shop with his wife, Christine, in Waltham, Massachusetts. Chris has served as the Secretary for AWCI, he is a member of the Massachusetts Watchmakers-Clockmakers Association, The Greater Boston Watch and Clock Collectors, NAWCC Chapter 87, and currently serves as the President of NAWCC New England Chapter 8. Beware: his family is sick of hearing him talk about watches and clocks, so he is happy to have found a new audience through Zoom.
