EE6000 or T7000 will be ideal. Use it all the time for bonding mobile phone parts. Use a small bead as it spreads when the part to be adhered is pressed into place. When its in place I wrap the item tightly in elastic bands to hold it together firmly for at least an hour. Full curing takes roughly 24 hours. I have never had a part fail and if you need to remove at a later date just heat up the part. Any excess adhesive will peel away. If you get any excess around the part when fitting it just leave it as rubbing backwards and forwards over it later on will cause it to ball up and come away as apposed to smearing when fresh.

Tissot all the way

Strongbow commented on A Beginner's Build: Perspectives of a Newbie ยท

Nice job! I had a list of parts in my ebay watch list. Movement, case, hands etc to try doing the same. Working it all out it's cheaper than buying a new similar watch lol. Plus as you say, tools are cheap enough. The only thing I would do differently would be to have two red hands. Like the red! ๐Ÿ‘

I Would, being the age to remember led watches when they first came out. Yes they are just time, date etc but it's nostalgic. I wouldn't touch one of the modern imitations are they're a waste of money and look awful. Genuine led all the way. I have one myself. If it's something you really want and can afford it then why not?

They can easily be replaced.

Strongbow commented on Is it okay to love Timex watches? ยท

Still have a Timex quartz indiglo alarm that you set by rotating the bezel. Was a present from my wife over 20 years ago and still going strong and accurate. Wear it when I have something important to get up for as the alarm is really loud. Great watch.

I'm currently changing all the watches I wear onto leather straps. Look and feel so much better than rubber and metal.
