Tascione – An Introduction

Jul 31, 2010

I have the bug! That’s the only way I can describe my recent infatuation

with antique clocks and pocket watches. Scouring ebay and other online

auction sites into the wee hours of morning I find myself stalking some

gleaming, ticking mechanical wonder that I just must add to my collection.

I now have twelve beautiful clocks and 22 – soon to be 23 – pocket

watches. Not bad for a two year collecting spree.
Problem is they don’t all run properly and the cost for a decent watch

repair or clock repair has often run more thaan the cost of the timepiece.

Well, bye bye great deal!
So it was time to consider the possibility of servicing my own collection.

I did some searching online and came accross a couple of watch repair and

clock repair courses. The Tascione course caught my attention because I

read some good stuff about Bob Tascione and his online courses on a few

other clock and watch websites. He’s been teaching both clock and watch

repair for over 20 years. I liked the fact that he offered a course called

“The Ultra” which included both the clock repair course and the watch

repair course for a big discount. I like discounts. I also liked the

online aspect as I had some lousy experiences with shipped DVDs in the

past. Also The Tascione website said that I would have immediate

access…and I was raring to go.

I must say I was a bit skeptical of the low prices. I like low prices but

how much good info was I actually going to get? Was I being sucked into a

quick little down and dirty “how to repair clocks and watches but don’t

ever attempt it” course? Like it says on the website sales material you

can pay more for a book on the subject than for the entire course – which

I’ve already done – I figured it was worth a go. Well, I spent about four

hours last night completely absorbed by the Tascione courses. The amount

of information and the way Bob presents it is surprising. I’ll write more

about the courses after working with them for a couple more days. A lot of

information to absorb. So far though I’m very impressed with the material

and presentation.
