In the grand tradition of the TV clip show, I thought I’d take advantage of a short hiatus in proceedings to indulge in a spot of reflection of projects past. I’ve been meaning for some time to compile a few before and after shots from projects where such comparisons provide sufficient contrast to be worth making.  The selections that appear below therefore should not be viewed as a greatest hits compilation but merely a series of markers charting the progress of an amateur watch fettler from early fumblings in 2008 to the present. You can link to the original post in each case by clicking on the photo (with any additional links in the caption).  In chronological order then, here we go:
