Hi all! It's May 2010, and I've done a major overhaul of my store and policies.
I now ship all watch parts in translucent plastic containers, with all bulk orders of a quarter pound and up with a tamper evident seal on the container. I now also accept exchanges/return/refunds for certain items, under certain conditions. International Shipping (and Domestic) has gone up. All larger orders will also have higher prices not only to cover the cost of the new packaging and seals, but all higher value orders now also will have some type of tracking, this includes International orders.

As new types of listings are being added (new assortments of parts, individual part listings) new policies will be added.

If you have any questions on anything, please don't hesitate to contact me, if you don't ask, I can't inform you! ;D


Welcome, this is my -supplies/destash- store. Some of the items I sell in here I can supply in bulk! Two specifically are the watch parts/gear mixes and mini bottles. Both of which I can supply in just about any quantity, just ask!
If an item is OOAK, or limited to what's on hand, I'll try to mention in the listing.

If you're interested in my unique creations, other watch parts, my ramblings or anyhting like that, please feel free to visit my website

The majority of the items in this store ( are commercial (with the occasional handmade) supplies and destash.
Everything is sold as is, and if you have any questions about an item, please contact me before hand. I will answer as much about the item(s) as I can. If you are not 100% sure on buying something, please contact me before you buy anything. I am always happy to talk it out, and make sure you not only know, what you're buying, but that it's what you needed/wanted to buy. If you're hesitant about buying bulk watch parts because you want to know exactly what's in the current lots of parts, please please feel free to contact me and ask for photos I may have of the most recent parts. I can't guarantee I will have any, but I am trying to take a few photos of each lot of parts that passes me.

If you only want specific parts, please contact me first about getting a special mix. I will NOT give you a custom mix if you buy a regular listing, unless it was already agreed upon. I am willing to do custom mixes, of most any kind!

Pre-Order Bulk Parts Listing Policies-
Includes: Regular & Small Stuff Bulk Watch Parts Quarter Pound and up (1/4# & up)
Here's how pre-orders go.
You place the order with me, complete your transaction, and pay for your item.
The moment your payment is complete, I process your order by first, placing the order with one of my suppliers.
They pick it, pack it and send it to me.
When I get the parts, I do three checks for quality. First by making sure there are no non-watch parts/etc in it and if there are, replacing the offending non-parts with an equal weight of parts.
The second, by checking the weight, making sure it's the correct weight for what was ordered, and if it's light, adding extra parts.
The third check is to make sure that the parts are consistent. For example, if there's not alot of one type of part (like, say, gears), I'll take out a few parts there may be too many of and replace them with other parts there may not be as many of. This ensures you get a good mix, and not just mostly one type of part.
Once I've finished the quality check, I package it up, and mail it to you.
So, if you forget to pay, my suppliers are backlogged, the postal system takes a bit longer or one of a craplod of other things, it can add a little extra time to your order.
When you place a Pre-Order, I will contact you within five days with an estimated time of shipping for your parts (once I know what supplier I'm ordering if from)
If you have a question about your parts while waiting, contact me!
All Pre-Orders are sent via Priority Domestically, and either via Priority or First Class with Extra Services Internationally, so it can be tracked. Yes, that makes it a tad more expensive for International Shipping, but this assures that your parts do get to you, and in a way that can be tracked.
