I just realized that I started this blog a little over 10 years ago. I started it because I had acquired a lot of watches over the preceding years and taught myself how to repair them. Every new watch was a new accomplishment... the first automatic, the first 748 movement, the first date complication, etc. They all had a story and my collection grew.
Eventually my bride laid down the law and told me packages needed to go out at the same rate that packages arrived. So I started the blog to document my efforts and then sold the models to fund new projects, or tools, or supplies.
Now, 10 years later it's interesting to look back at older posts and see how far Ive come.
One of the models I posted in 2013 was the 1954 Automatic K-502. My original posting was short and sweet. Since I recently had an opportunity to restore another K-502, I thought I'd take the opportunity to show a little more detail.
