THIS IS IN FACT A 3818B…THE DTU-2A/P! IT CAME OUT AFTER THE SPECIAL FIRST ISSUE10,000 PIECES. IN FACT THE DTU XXX IS ON CASE BACK BUT IT TRULY WAS NOT A DTU 2A/P. THOSE HAD MOVEMENTS WITH NO SPECS. JUST HAD TO LAST TWO YEARS WITH NO REPAIR OR MAINTENANCE! THIS ONE WAS THE RESULT OF A BATTLE BETWEEN BENRUS AND BULOVA. BULOVA LOST AND NEVER NEVER MADE WATCHES FOR THE NAM! AND THIS WAS THE LAST LIKE IT– THOUGH THE GOV/MIL DECIDED ALL THOSE WATCHES FOR NAM WOULD BE SINGLE CASES…    I HAVE PROVIDED LINKS TO ALL THE DOCUMENTATION BELOW!

DTU_2A_NOT_P.jpg (133406 bytes)

ALSO, THERE WAS NO BENRUS 1 AND II DIVE WATCHES IN THE NAM, THERE WERE NON! THE ONLY DIVES WERE THOSE PURCHASED IN PX/BX R&R MADE BY BENRUS. LOOK FORWARD TO MY EXPOSE ON THE BENRUS TYPE II AUTOMATICS… WHAT A CROCK!

BTW: HAD TO GO TO VA WHEN MY BLOOD PRESSURE WENT TO 180 OVER ?????

YUP. JUST HAD HEADACHES FOR 2 MONTHS AND OTHER THINGS HAPPENING. THEY IMMEDIATELY TOOK CARE OF ME.. AWESOME THE VA IS!!!      

DTU-2A-3818B
ACTUALLY SPECS WERE FOR
3818B

YOUR COSTS AND FACTS OF MY WORKS

a] the average cost to servicenot restoreand detail including case dial crystal & hands, a 50 year old hacking fine military watch is 275.00. period, yet not only did i service THIS BEAUTY but changed parts and made repairs and ACTUALLY, restored BECAUSE i supplied THE chemicals, electricity AND SPECIALIZED equipment & THEN THE warranty AND appraisal! the warranty is the most important because the parts remain being aged and used! never know when something will give our our warranty i great! free labor and only cost for worn out parts!

MY PATRON RECEIVED HIS DTU-2A-3818B. WHILE CRUISING IN 1968 ON THE CORAL SEA
USS Coral Sea, a Midway-class aircraft carrier, was the third ship of the United States Navy to be named for the Battle of the Coral Sea. She earned the affectionate nickname “Ageless Warrior” through her long career

b} MY PATRON RECEIVED HIS TIME PIECE ON THE Coral Sea in 1968! but some one worked on it and screwed it up. the cap jewel did not simply disappear nor the shock spring just bend itself nor the hacking lever post bend the wrong way on its own…. these repairs were over and above the price i quoted but i kept the price as is.

c} the dial: i could have restored the dial, but plates for restoring the dial combined with labor?? 125.00 extra..  yet i hand cleaned and preserved and did minor yet major repairs

d} the hands. [HANDS WERE TO BE RE-ILLUMINATED TO LOOK AGED] rather than installing a set of after mkt hands [42,00] i would simply clean yet keep them looking old! important to leave as is.. this is one of them no matter what anyone else may say, should be as is!  old and worn .. you cannot polish or paint them and the LUME original??? it is completely different so using AF luminova was in fact my only choice to keep the watch looking aged! i have pics of restores with all like new. you did not ask that!

e} hours to find parts and to repair it was a nightmare. the jewel cap for top and bottom, the shock absorber caps and to polish the balance pivots . it had run on an angle for a long time before the brass spring on top –which is actually the bottom — shifted causing the balance to tilt. i had to polish over and over install over and over hence when i added the new main spring & barrel , which also was a little different from the original meant i had to compensate on my adjusting.

e1] i adjusted the balance until it ran perfect. but i knew the main would speed up some after a few months of action, so, i pulled crown [literally] and used crystal remover to lift out turned watch over and allowed the movement w/dial and hands to drop into my left hand and gently moved the adjuster ever so slightly to one click slow.. 

E2}  AS SHE IS WOUND TO STOP AND RUN OVER AND OVER THE SPRING WILL compensate and will speed up– 

F]  I HAVE WRITTEN EXTENSIVELY ON THE CASE. THE CASE HAS A FINISH THAT CANNOT BE SANDED, BUFFED OR BEAD BLASTED WITHOUT REMOVING THE FINISH.. PERIOD. IF THE FINISH IS REMOVED IT BECOMES STEEL looking .. LIKE POLISHED STEEL COLOR LIKE FOREVER..

F2] I PERSONALLY BEADED IT BY HAND FOR SIX HOURS [OVER TWO DAYS ] with PHOSPHATE TO REMOVE WHAT YOU SEE IN THE PICS TO GET IT AS IT LOOKS TODAY! you cannot buff out, sand out, scratches without destroying the finish!in fact the seam that defines the back still has some of the discoloration cause i could not hand bead/rub it out!

g} crystal. the crystal is the best one can get it can be polished 40 times and can resist scratching better than original


PARTS

parts were 159.44 my fee 275.00 add electricity the free strap and button

without electric or any other costs i made 115.00 gross 

not including appraisal and warranty

ALSO I FREELY REPLACED THE SPRING BARS AND FREE MIL STRAP 

IMG_2465.jpg (51581 bytes)

i added af luminova. this had to be light in texture due to fact of hand design originally used a tritium mix. i had to repair and cover scratches nicks and damage to dial. the seconds hand i attempted to add more AF Luminova to top of arrow head but distance from top of sec hand to crystal is rather shallow so wound up shaving her some. THE NUMERALS ARE BLEACHED … CASE IS SURELY CLEANED UP! AND NOT SIMPLY WASHED IN ULTRA SONIC!

DOES THE TOP CASE LOOK THE SAME AS BOTTOM???
LOOK AT SECONDS HAND??? & HOUR/MINUTE
ALSO I REPLACED THE SPRING BARS AND ADDED A FREE MIL STRAP 

IMG_2192.jpg (44885 bytes)

note discoloration of case it was this way all over. EVEN THE the hands, especially the seconds hand show wear staining and damage. crystal was cracked allowing moisture and dust to breach the case. note pic above this one? NOTE THE DIFFERENCE OF THE WHITE NUMERALS. NOTE THE WATER DAMAGE TO FINISH WHERE WATER MOISTURE DIRT INVADED THROUGH A THROUGH CRACK IN CRYSTAL !!!!!!!!!!!!

STEM TWO PART. – PULL CROWN – USED CRYSTAL REMOVER – THE MOVEMENT WITH A MOUNT RING POPS OUT – REMOVE DIAL. SILICONE WASH DIAL- LACQUER SUPER THINNED COAT FOR TRIANGLES –PULL HANDS, SCRAPE OFF OLD TRITIUM –  PLACE UNDER SUPER VIOLATE LIGHTS -THEN WHITEN/BLEACH THE ORIGINAL PAINT ON HANDS – FULL AF-LUMINOVA PLACED COAT WITH DRAB OLIVE GREEN – WASH OFF THEY LOOK AGED – USE SPECIAL SOFT TIP MARKER TYPE PEN FILLED WITH BLACK PAINT GO AROUND THE DIAL EDGES WHERE TIME AND THE CRYSTAL –WHICH SEATS ON THE EDGE OF DIAL – IT KEEPS THE MOVEMENT FROM MOVING IP OR DOWN– YET OVER YEARS IT WORE OUT THE PAINT – CLEANING REVEALS SCRATCHES SO GO OVER THEM. CASE WAS ORIGINALLY TREATED TO BE ANTI REFLECTIVE. REMEMBER THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF WATCHES AS FAR    AS US GOV WAS CONCERNED THIS IS THE ONLY ONE THAT HAD 17 JEWEL TOP GRADE MOVEMENT.

IMG_2470.jpg (32510 bytes)

YUP… THIS WATCH SERVED IN THE NAM AND WHILE WE WANT TO RESTORE IT WE ALSO DO NOT WANT TO MAKE LIKE NEW NOTE IT LOOKS GREAT. VERY SUPER LIGHT PHOSPHORUS COAT OVER TRITIUM TRIANGLES GETS SOME ILLUMINATION. HANDS WHERE MOST DIFFICULT. LOOK AT MY 160,000 IMAGES OF MY RESTORES SOME WERE FINISHED LIKE NEW– BUT NOT HERE, HANDS WHERE THICKLY  RE-ILLUMINATED BUT THEN A LIGHT SHADED COTE OF DRAB GREENISH WATER BASED COAT OFFERS THE PERFECT FINISH

 

IMG_2466.jpg (44636 bytes)

LETS FACE IT THE CASE CAME OUT TREMENDOUS! THESE CASES ARE STEEL AND TO REDUCE GLARE A PARKERIZING TECHNIQUE IS UTILIZED THIS ONE HAD SCRATCHES AND AREAS THAT THE FINISH HAD  WORN OUT. USING A TECHNIQUE THAT INCLUDES BEADING THEN APPLYING A PHOSPHATE CONCOCTION I GOT HER JUST ABOUT RIGHT

IMG_2459.jpg (31001 bytes)

OLD MILITARY STRAP MAKES THIS BEAUTY–THOUGH MY PATRON, WHO HAS DELIVERED A GOOD FEW RESTORATIONS, NEEDS TO HAVE ME BUILD A WIDE CUFF STRAP –LIKE FURTHER DOWN00 MAN THAT IS THE NAM!

HACKING AGAIN PERFECTLY

clutch.jpg (54868 bytes)

“L” =LEVER “B”= BALANCE WHEEL  
THE PIN THAT STOPS BALANCE BY PULLING CROWN IS IN THE MOVEMENT. PULLING CROWN CAUSE CLUTCH  TO MOVE INTO THE WHEEL THAT CONNECTS TO MINUTE WHEEL ALLOWING YOU TO TURN CROWN AND SET TIME.

USING THIS FUNCTION TO ADD A HACKING FUNCTION WAS BRILLIANT. WHEN YOU PULL CROWN AN ADDED TWO PIECE SPRING LOADED HACKING LEVER COMES IN CONTACT WITH THE CLUTCH WHICH NOT ONLY CONNECTS TO THE WHEEL DRIVING THE MINUTE WHEEL – ALLOWING FOR THE SETTING OF TIME — BUT ALSO MOVES SECTION ONE OF THE HACK LEVER THAT THEN MOVE THE SECOND STAGE THAT HOLDS THE HACKING PIN!

THAT LEVER MOVES THE PIN TO THE BALANCE WHEEL STOPPING IT. WHEN YOU PUSH CROWN BACK IN THE CLUTCH MOVES BACK TOWARDS THE CROWN AND ENGAGES THE WATCH TO BE WOUND.

IF THE PIN IS BENT TOO FAR IT COULD BREAK THE BALANCE STAFF OR CAUSE DAMAGE OVER TIME. THIS PARTICULAR ITEM WAS REPAIRED AFTER EVERY OTHER ITEM OF RESTORATION OF THE MOVEMENT WAS ACCOMPLISHED.

THE PIN YOU SEE WAS BENT AND POSITIONED TOO FAR RIGHT -CAUSING IT NOT TO FUNCTION PROPERLY. 
IT TOOK SEVERAL HOURS TO REMOVE BALANCE AND STRIP THE CENTER BRIDGE RE POSITION PIN W/O BREAKING, PLACE THE BALANCE BACK IN , PLACE BRIDGE AFTER ALIGNING ALL THE WHEELS AND STAFFS AND TEST, THEN DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN 7 TIMES.

HERE IS WHERE ELIJAH REEDY

GETS INVOLVED

 

DAN’S WATCH CAME IN FOR WARRANTY WORK
IT WAS RUNNING 30 MINUTES FAST EVERY 12 HOURS
ONE YEAR AFTER  ROCK HAD RETIRED
 ELIJAH REEDY WAS ASKED IF HE WOULD HANDLE IT
ELIJAH OWED ROCK A LITTLE AFTER MAKING HIM WAIT FOR HIS CASH NEARLY A YEAR-ELIJAH
REEDY STATED HE WOULD CHECK IT OUT
HE WAS INFORMED ONLY COSTS OF PARTS AND NO LABOR!
HE AGREED! I THOUGHT DAN HAD THE WATCH BACK
AGTER THE FIRST TWO WEEKS BUT LOW AND BEHOLD
ELIJAH DECIDED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MY FRIEND & PATRON

AFTER A YEAR THE TIME PIECE CAME IN FOR A SIMPLE BASIC WARRANTY SITUATION IT WAS RUNNING FAST  AND  DAN UNDER MY COMMAND SENT THE WATCH TO ELIJAH REEDY BUT IT SOON BECAME A NIGHTMARE WHEN A  SIMPLE NO FEE BASIC PARTS     SITUATION  TURNED INTO  A  NIGHTMARE  OF RIP OFF SCAM  BY ELIJAH  REEDY  WHOM DECIDED TO SEEK CASH

OK. WHY DO I OBJECT TO ELIJAH REEDY USING MY NAME?  THE DAN HOBACK WARRANTY & ELIJAH COMES  TO MIND! I  ASKED ELIJAH TO CHECK OUT A WARRANTY RETURN ONCE FOR A CLIENT  DAN ,HOBACK simple  A minor  warranty repair of a restoration of a military watch. A watch I restored IN NOV 2016, was NOV 2017 A year PREVIOUS Elijah not only lied but scammed him  and did  it so well DAN gave him his money and WAS TAKEN 4 EVERY CENT I will take you through this terrible tale that I THOUGHT THE JOB HAD BEEN ACCOMPLISHED MONTHS BEFORE IT ACTUALLY WAS THERE WAS SUPPOSE TO BE NO CHARGE EXCEPT ANY MINOR PARTS CHARGE. GOT IT! NO RE-CHARGES BUT? IF YOU SAY I HAVE TO CLEAN OR INSTALL BLAH BLAH IT IS FREE WARRANTY. IF YOU NEED A PART JUST THE COST! ELIJAH HAD THE WORLD HE HAD GOT EVERYTHING FROM ME FOR PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR ,   YET HE RIPPED  THIS GREAT PATRON OFF….W/O TELLING ME! AND THEN I GOT WORD AS TO WHAT HE DID AND IT WAS SHOCK!

THE DanHOBACK EPISODE 2017-11-13 16:40:08

Message:”ROCK, HOPE YOU ARE ENJOYING RETIREMENT AND THAT YOU AND YOURS ARE KEEPING WELL.I WOULD 
LIKE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR WARRANTY ON THE WATCH YOU DID FOR ME IN NOVEMBER OF LAST YEAR.  IT IS GAINING 30 MINUTES IN A TWELVE HOUR PERIOD. CAN WE WORK SOMETHING OUT? YOU WILL RECALL IT IS A  DTU-2A-3818B 17 JEWEL BENRUS MOVEMENT. THE RECEIPT #1658-8429-4134-7625 DATED DECEMBER 20, 2016 APPLIES.”

i informed dan that yes , of course i would honor the warranty. i stated i would have Elijah , whom bought my equipment, take a look at  it seeing that i knew the watch so darn well that i could work with him over the phone and assist him with whatever it required. Heck the watch was an easy as pie time piece and it was mint seeing that I had it perfected and the problem  it had, running fast, could be fixed ! Simply. Period! I would bet it any day! the balances were available and everything else was like new! Again, Every thing was like
 new in that watch period! i knew that period! i had access and still do to every part in that movement on the market I knew where  to go if necessary! FACT!!!! It had to be an adjustment because i could bet on my entire family that their were no SERIOUS broken or worn  parts period! And as my thousands of military watch restores beg to prove, I knew that watch like I knew 70 others  I had restored.  “So i informed Dan that we would send it to Elijah. And I asked Elijah if he could re-time the watch!  HE COULD simply  reset OR REPLACE the balance.

DAN was a great patron, he sent the watch to elijah. elijah sent a message stating he had received the watch. Mind you, the  watch worked great except it was 30 MINUTES FAST IN A TWELVE HOUR PERIOD. Originally it was losing time,  in fact I had restored the watch Complete. A new main spring was added and it was completely overhauled. In fact it ran slightly  slow and i had informed Dan that it would speed up once the main spring loosened up and it sure did.. so it did not surprise me  that it ran fast after nearLY 12 months! I thought it would do so earlier but not 30 minutes iT could be corrected in A little time!  But then Elijah got his greedy hands a hold of it and he saw $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Date: 2017-11-24 03:50:39
:Elijah Happy Thanksgiving, I just wanted to send you a message real quick and let you know I picked the watch up. I  will be sending you another message in a few days. With a few questions.Talk to you then.
:Elijah

12-05 04:13:46Hello, Tell me about your relationship with the watch? Do you wear it often, when you do wear  it, what are you doing the days you wear the watch. 30 second gain is a little high, but for a watch of this age,
 +/- 25 sec is ok with us. But I am still going to try and dial this one in a little better for you though. Watches  perform differently depending how they are sitting, dial up, dial to the side, right, left, down. so that’s why I
am asking you what you do when you wear the watch. I am going to try and tailor it to how you perform while  you are wearing the watch.[rock yup here. it began, none of these questions were correct or required  period!!!? IT WAS MINUTES NOT SECONDS!!!! WHAT DID HE MEAN “DIAL IN “? elijah began with his foot in his mouth but i thought let it be.. he only had to set the time & observe  then open the  watch and see why it was running 30 MINUTES fast! adjust the balance !! adjust the balance!! i THOUGHT!-AND IF NOT GET A DARN BALANCE AND REPLACE IT IT WILL TAKE 30 MINUTES AND THAT BALANCE IS AVAILABLE I CALLED A FRIEND 65 BUCKS! I TRIED CONTACTING ELIJAH BUT HE WAS NOT RETURNING MY CALL. I LOOKED BACK UP AT THE BOARD AND FIGURED I WOULD WAIT FOR HIS CALL..

  DAN to elijah It’s been a month since I last communicated with you. How is my watch coming along?
   
 

Elijah: Yes, I actually started timing the watch yesterday.   WHAT  Sorry for the delay. I wanted to have it back to you a few weeks  ago, unfortunately I had several pressing issues arise- several big investors sent in a few large restorations in early December . Last week was the first week I could actually start getting caught up from my other work

rock: this was a lie he had no investers in fact  i was trying to get paid also WAITING FOR THE BALANCE HE OWED ME! while  he was out fixing real estate!

Elijah:I pulled your watch out today and its on the timer machine being assessed.
 
rock
i THOUGHT THAT POSSIBLY HE WAS  TRYING STRETCH TIME?  i HAD sent him, ONCE MORE, the link to THIS VERY PAGE, MY online works on this PARTICULAR RESTORATION!  I DID NOT BOTHER HIM ABOUT HIS TALE ABOUT HAVING A TIMING MACHINE CAPABLE OF ASSESSING WHY THE TIME PIECE WAS RUNNING FAST! I PROVIDED A ELECTRONIC TIMING DEVICE BUT IN NO WAY IS IT THAT CAPABLE!!! IN FACT I DOUBT HE KNOWS HOWTO USE IT!

dan 2018-01-03 14:05:41DAN Thanks for the update.

dan: 
It’s been a week now, did my watch survive the timer? Is it adjustable to meet specs? How soon do you think it will be coming home?

rock i find out that  ELIJAH IS STILL DOING NOTHING AT ALL

elijah to dan: Good Morning, I got the flu and was down for almost 10 days. Today is my first day back
.[reALIZE THATr his set up is  in the house!!]  I will have it ready in 2 days.  I will send you a paypal invoice for shipping. when i saw this i stopped paying attention and never checked back caus e i thought it was done. I WAITED FOR THE CALL FROM elijah ! BUT HE WAS was after  dan’s wallet big time

“hello
Dan, After going thru the timing process In all 6 positions I noticed I kept getting an irregular beat pattern, [this is a  lie one can determine this BEFORE GOING THROUGH ALL THAT BS] At first I thought the movement was gummed up from every day  use. Which, it is by the way. “

[this was a lie -you see– because  the watch ran perfect! it simply kept perfect time only it was 30 minutes fast every 12 perfect hours that meant it was a mechanical problem not a dirty”  watch hello caught you bro lying]

elijah again WITH THE MONEY BOMB: “” But that can be fixed with just a service to the movement itself.”””

[this was  ALSO a lie because the watch kept perfect time perfectly” 30 minutes fast every 12 hours!” perfect & it did not  need servicing it needed adjustment ]

Which if its an every day worn watch its time to get the watch serviced and protect your investment. That’s the first thing, Due to the watch beat jumping around and getting irregular beats I decided to go in for a closer look. I noticed the hairspring  has 2 coils that have moved out from each other, I am almost certain that this is the reason why your time piece is running  this way. We will never be able to get this watch timed or running correctly with this
hairspring in this condition. It will only get worse.

CLOSER LOOK? THE 2 COILS ??? YOU COULD SEE THEM FROM THE TOP! LOOKING DOWN!
W/O ANY PROBLEM RIGHT AWAY! SIMPLY BY LOOKING DOWN AT THE BALANCE! THIS WAS A FACT! ELIJAH STATED THIS! HE SHOULD HAVE WITNESSED THIS IMMEDIATELY AT THE VERY FIRST TIME HE LOOKED INTO THE MOVEMENT. IN FACT WHEN HE OPENED THE WATCH TO CHECK WHY SHE WAS RUNNING 30 MINUTES FAST! WE CHECK THE BALANCE HAIR SPRING THE FIRST TIME TO SEE IF IT IS COILED PROPERLY. IS HE STATING THAT IT WAS NOT PERFECTLY SPACED? READ ON DOWN!!!

THIS IS SIMPLY another lie because if the beat was jumping around the timing would never had been so precise! hello  it would never had been 30 minutes every 12 hours the time would have been all over the placer like crazy you  screwed it up elijah! yup, the watch kept perfect time 3o minutes fast every 12 hours! it  did not need servicing it needed adjustment OR REPLACEMENT ]

 i have literally have thousands of watches online that you can VIEW  do you know how easy it is to fix coils on a balance? or BETTER YET simply change balance complete which has the coil!???

I am not sure if this is the original balance or not? Could be from age, could also be from residue getting  gummed up along the coils and it caused a few of them to stick and from the weight shifting it caused 2 of them to cross over each other. ELIJAH!!!

<< come on bs!! you can see easly if it is gummed uP? OR SIMPLY LOOK AT THE RESTORE PICS PERFECT  I WOULD HAVE SIMPLY OPTED TO CHANGE HER!

[note,  i have fixed thousands of balances period i restored this watch and that movement was pristine!  STEADY 30 minutes every 12 hours was factual! yet you went and missed the cause and blamed  everything  but the facts  changing the balance complete WITH coil WOULD HAVE SAVED THE DAY AND WOULD HAVE ENDED IT ALL!!! i was not there but your work was bsl ]

When you first reached out to me about the warranty work  !, with it just being a simple  timing correction I was happy to just take it in and correct the timing for you. However now we are looking at a completely different animal now. This is not a simple timing correction,

OH MY GOD HERE HE WAS BLAMING DAN! DAN NEVER REACHED OUT TO ELIJAH I DID HELL DAN DID NOT KNOW ELIJAH YOU READ THE FACTS! HE WAS NOT HAPPY TO “JUST TAKE IT IN” I ASKED HIM IF HE WOULD TAKE IT IN FOR FREE CHARGE NOTHING BUT COST FOR PARTS. IT WAS HE THAT HAD BEEN SCREWING UP CAUSE HE DID NOT KNOW WHAT HE WAS DOING AND WHY? CAUSE HE WAS NOT STUDYING LIKE HE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE DOING NOT READING THE BOOKS NOT GOING TO ALL MY SITES LIKE I HAD TRAINED HIM TO DO, HE HAD SIMPLY PURCHASED THE EQUIPMENT AND THEN CLOSED HIS EARS TO MY TRAINING, MY RECOMMENDATIONS AND DECIDED HE COULD SIMPLY FOOL HIS CLIENTS AND HE HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL AS HE HAS SHOWN WITH DAN FOR DAM STILL DID NOT CALL ME  AND ELIJAH SIMPLY LIED TO HIM OVER AND OVER IN THIS CASE HE TELLS DAN HE IS SHIPPING THE WATCH REPAIRED BUT THAT IS A LIE BECAUSE HE IS DETERMINED TO GET PAID IF HE HAS TO MAKE THE WATCH HAVE PROBLEMS AND THAT IS WHAT HE DOES HE CREATES IT!  
DO NOT FORGET I ASKED ELIJAH IF HE WOULD DO ME A FAVOR AND TAKE A LOOK AT THIS WARRANTY RETURN AND FIX IT FOR FREE EXCEPT AT COST FOR PARTS. IN FACT THE ELIJAH OWED ME SO MUCH IT AIN’T FUNNY. AND NOW HE WAS BLAMING MY PATRON! HE, ELIJAH, HAD GUARANTEED ME, ROCK, THAT HE WOULD GET THE PATRON’S WATCH RUNNING FOR FREE ONLY CHARGING FOR PARTS BUT NOW HE WAS RIPPING HIM OFF!!! 

i am sorry, a warranty meant anything at all what ever he needed so what are you saying  you did not call me! fact is it takes ten to 15 minutes to change a coil spring or balance complete so stop the the bs you did sht you did nothing but  hold the man’s watch until you could rip him off ROCK

(pOH MY GOD elijah you moved for the kill! And  gave me a curtsey call  he reached out to me my warranty  not yours! it is was simple! you made a mountain out of a mole hill. the watch kept perfect  time due to a problem that made it keep time that was 30 minutes fast every 12 hours? how  you miss that? the key was the balance period! something causing the balance TO not beat right correct? it was perfect? so no dirt no nothing but that balance hair spring] below is a lie!!!!!

1. The watch needs to be serviced. At that time the watch movement would get completely taken apart and ran  thru a 3 stage cleaning process???. All the keyless work, jewels, wheels, mainspring, pinion would get lubricated.  The hairspring would also get removed -which this is a must at this point because of the way it sits right now, the  watch is running- how long it will continue to run is uncertain, the accuracy of this watch right now just poor.
 

(it was not erratic! it did not require all the bs you are saying you owe dan an apology and cash IF IN FACT  you ripped him off  ok what bs is he talking       about? first, it was running 30 minutes fast like clock work  not poorly? i had   completely worked it SEE THE PICS. it was not running slow or missing time or stopping and  then running nothing said it was going to fail only that that it    was running too fast. that did not  mean you scare the hell out  of the mans   pocket book this was a rip off if i ever saw one! period.  what is this 3 stage   cleaning? u talking about 1952 parts washer!! He is makes it seem like killer   technology! those whom  know we never usiED JUST that cleaner for these      watches!  awesome Vintage Killer Military Watches like this deserve the           ultrasonic cleaner! I informed Elijah of that fact!!!!! So if he did what i think he did, he lied to Dan AGAIN!!! Cause that watch never required  the work Elijah stated it did READ THE FACTS i HASVE THEM IN THE ORIGINAL LIST ABOVE   SEE ULTRASONIC NOTE THAT IT HAS HACKING MECHANISM DID YOU KNOW  THAT BET YOU DUD NOT I HOPE UYOU DID NOT MISS THAT THOSE FACTS   ]

I believe you stated the watch was gaining 30 seconds a day? (i guess dan missed this again?  Elijah once again states seconds & this is what happens when ONE  getS caught! he never ever  adjusted anything at all) My first timing of the watch it was gaining nearly “5 seconds”  (note he was always working in seconds).  Now that can be adjusted, but my point is this. We can adjust  and adjust- the hairspring is must be symmetrical or it will continue to run very poor – its the heart of the watch.   (it was never running poorly. that means oddly with no stRaight time. in this case we had definitive timing! it was  absolute! 30 minutes! which means it could be adjusted! rocks two cents!  rather it was running 30 minutes  fast over 24 hours the daughter wore the watch every day nearly 24hrs!)

elijah’s greatest greedy mistake is in this paragraph:

Dan, I have spent 8 hrs diagnosing and assessing this watch for you. I really tried to make up for the lost time as  the last 2 months have just well to say the least very busy. Add my entire house getting sick , its just not what I  was hoping for. I have not even looked your ticket up from when you purchased this watch. Can you tell me  more about this  purchase. Was it a restored watch that Rock completed for you? I noticed a few  things that  could use some attention. I want sure if Rock just had the watch and you bought it, or if you  were specific on how you wanted the watch. ELIJAH

ANOTHER LIE BY ELIJAH REEDY NOTE HE DOES NOT SAY HE CALLED ME?
RECALL THAT THIS WAS A WARRANTY THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FREE
LABOR AND WAS TO BE ELIJAH CALLING ME UP AND HE WAS TO EX-
AMINE THE WATCH AND ONLY CHARGE COSTS FOR ANY PARTS NOT CONSIDER IT A JOB FOR PROFIT HE SHOULD HAVE LET ME KNOW IF HE DECIDED TO RIP YOU OFF! HELLO  IT WAS RUNNING 30 MINUTES TOO FAST EVERY 12  HOURS IF HE LOOKED AT THIS PAGE HE NOTED IT WAS HACKING MILITARY WATCH THAT
I TORE DOWN AND REPLACED  KEY PARTS AND THAT A SIMPLE
BALANCE COMPLETE OR HAIRSPRING WOULD HAVE BEEN RIGHT ON
TO CHARGE THE PATRON AS A REGULAR JOB AND FULL  PROFIT??
AND NOT AS WHAT THE DEAL WAS HER ELIJAH CAN YOU DO ME A FAVOR
PROBLEM IS ELIJAH FORGOT THAT IT WAS A WARRANTY AND HE AGREED 
TO TAKE IT AS A FAVOR AND THEN HE DID NOT KNOW WHAT HE WAS DOING AT ALL
AND INSTEAD OF SHOWING THAT HE MADE UP LIES LIKE THE ELECTRONIC TESTOR
AND SO MANY OTHERS LIKE THE COILS HELLO AND MORE HE DOES THIS ALL THE TIME
THEN HE BLAMES THE PATRON WHOM NEVER ASKED FOR ELIJAH ROCK SENT HIM THERE

 

hello?? did you read the above?He knows that the watch was issued to Dan aboard the USS Coral Sea on  September 18, 1968 and had been continuously in his possession! He completely forgot the history of this  time piece or my own works! do you believe any of it? i informed elijah about this watch, he saw the original ticket, the warranty, and the restoration history, all of you know what that means! the pictures  of all the work i did, the strip down, the complete build out, the parts, the works, the timing, the buffing,  all the work, the history, everything that i did from start to finish originally and i went over it for him?   instead he goes for Dan’s wallet at every turn! While i am believing he has shipped Dan his watch weeks  before he is trying to sell him a strap along with a complete service with parts and a complete overhaul  that he will accomplish by buying parts???? say what? Imagine this? He does not have it running cause  he screwed it up!!! Yet while informing him it is screwed up, he goes into telling him he decided to look  into bracelets????? Which he will offerfor free? WHY THIS?? Even though he knew just how important the original strap was?

NOTE THIS!!! DAN: I noticed the bracelet was in pretty rough shape(Peeling). I decided to look in some of the old stock that I had and found several bracelets like the one you have on there now, If you just like that bracelet I could refinish that one for you at time of Service. I would be more than willing to offer you another bracelet free of charge just for the long wait that you had to endure. Or I could refinish the one you  have now, So right now you have 2 options. I can put the watch back together , its running, She can wear it  till it stops running, [what the fk] which it will do at some point. It may even start to do it periodically then  start back. Once it stops you can send it back in and we can asses it then and address itELIJAH IN THE WORST RIP OFF THREAT I EVER READ THE KIND THAT GETS TOURISTS

HELLO? DID YOU READ IT? I THOUGHT HE MAILED THE WATCH BUT HE WAS GOING AGAINST EVERYTHING I COULD EVER BELIEVE HE WOULD DO! ASKED HIM! TO WHERE IT TILL IT STOPS? WHAT ABOUT MY WARRANTY? ROCK

Or you can have the  watch serviced- 190.00<<<< what does this mean???  I can try to get the hairspring  back into shape- if I cannot get the hairspring back into considerable condition, we will have to start looking for a replacement  hairspring- 90.00-150.00*** This isn’t a part I can just order. I will have to find it- could be 7 days could  be a couple of months-  Or if you don’t want the watch serviced but only want me to address the balance I  can do that as well. Though I see it foolish to not invest in the service of this timepiece, But it you just want  me to address the balance I can. I already did some research tonight , There are 2 balance completes for this movement for sale. Both of them are for under 60 dollars. I will  need to contact sellers though and ask them a few questions. But once those 2 sell I could not tell you when  another one would come available. Just decide what you would like for me to do, You only have to pay half up front and the rest at time of completion. ELIJAH RIP OFF

THE BALANCE COMPLETE [WITH HAIRSPRING] IS AVAILABLE KNOW YOUR PARTS DEALERS! IT IS A PART YOU CAN ORDER! WHAT MAKES YOU BELIEVE THEY ARE RARE ELIJAH? THIS IS WHY YOU SHOULD GET IT DONE OR QUIT! IN FACT I WONDER IF YOU REALIZE SHE IS A HACKING WATCH? THE MOVEMENT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION! IT WAS SEALED PERFECT!    

ARE YOU FOR REAL? FOR CHRIST SAKE YOU CAN SEE IT NEEDS A BALANCE AND THE BALANCE IS AVAILABLE AND IT HAS THE FRIGGEN HAIR SPRING AND YOU CAN CHANGE IT IN 30 MINUTES AND BE DONE! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO SERVICE THE DOG GONE WATCH AND YOU KNOW IT! YOU COULD HAVE DONE THIS WEEKS AGO! YOU HAVE BEEN TRYING TO RIP DAN OFF SINCE DAY ONE! JUST READ YOUR OWN WRITING ELIJAH!  WHAT ELECTRONIC DEVICE DID YOU USE! A DAM LIE! EVERY THING POINTS TO THE BALANCE & HAIR SPRING AS A SINGLE ITEM MAKES SENSE SO THAT THE WATCH DOES NOT RETURN IN 12 MONTHS! NO? A SMART MOVE! THAT WATCH DID NOT GUM UP OR IS IT IN NEED OF SERVICE! ADMIT IT! YOU HAVE 90 TO 150 FOR A HAIRSPRING?? ARE YOU NUTS? GET MY PATRON A BALANCE COMPLETE AND INSTALL IT AND GET THE JOB DONE IT WILL RUN LIKE A TOP! PERIOD WHY ARE YOU DELAYING ????

OH NO HERE HE IS LYING AGAIN! 190 TO SERVICE WHAT? REPLACEMENT HAIRSPRING  90 TO 150.00?? THAT IS HIWAY ROBBERY HELL A BALANCE COMPLETE WHICH IS THE WHOLE KIT AND KABOOTLE “WITH THE HAIR SPRING” PLUS LABOR IS CUT IN HALF IS 55 TO 75! AND
CONTRARY TO HIS BS AVAILABLE ? ROCK

I will put yours high priority, meaning I will start on it asap. If I have to buy the part I would need to get  that in full and then you would just pay balance of labor to install.  I will do everything in power to go  above and beyond for you. I do realize that the intake of this watch was not really handled correctly. Though I know it has nothing to do with the mechanics of the watch itself. I just handled the assessment  and the timelines poorly. Don’t get me wrong, we have some guys that have had there watches with me for over 8 months ELIJAH

IT IS A WARRANTY JOB ELIJAH NO LABOR YOU AGREED HERE YOU ARE CHARGING LABOR! IT TAKES 30 MINUTES TO PLACE THAT BALANCE. THAT IS A LONG ENOUGH TIME TO DO IT ALL! IT IS YOU WHOM IS MAKING THIS THING GO FOR AGES NOT THE TIME PIECE OR THE PATRON!  

WHAT A LIAR 8 MONTHS FOR WHAT THE RUST HE “FOUND” WITH MY MICROSCOPE?
 ANOTHER SCAM HE HAS BEEN RUNNING! HE WAS SUPPOSED TO HONOR MY WARRANTY AND DISCOVER WHAT WAS WRONG AND FIX IT FREELY AND IF IT NEEDED ANYTHING ONLY CHARGE COST FOR PARTS NO LABOR HE AGREED AND HE SAID HE HAD SHIPPED THE WATCH  IT ALREADY!ROCK

 But they knew that going into it.<<did they?>> You however  did not, I dropped the ball in telling you  it may be a few months. (had i known dan would be ripped off like you ripped him off i sure as hell would never had sent him that watch! ROCK) @ So I apologize for.how in the hell can you appologize for ripping the guy off?? getting more comfortable ripping folk off??  things are starting to run a lot better ??.

you know what realy got me? this bullchit: dan,  we missed “a hair spring last night for “17 dollars”.  I almost went ahead and bought it, but was unsure on how you feel about all this and so decided to  just wait to hear from you. ELIJAH

youy are such a liar. if in fact you had any truth in you you would  have spent 17 bucjks and if that was required got the watch  working but that is a lie! here you have “replacement hairspring- 90.00-150.00***” for an apprentice whom claims to be a pro , elijah is one of the greatest rip offs. not only is he so  lucky to find great amounts of  rust in watches, so he can order parts but he loves hair springs! now it would be better to invest in a  balance complete. they are available  for this time piece and it is cheaper to replace a balance complete duh!!!! ROCK

and i noted this:
Did rock repaint the hands or re lume the hands? ELIJAH

this was never a repair., note how elijah tells his “fibs”. i never performed repairs only restorations and elijah knows this and every restoration had a
 complete picture book that is published online. he saw the copy of this one. i sent it to him . not only that, if the hands illuminate they have been reluminated.  ROCK
