I INVESTED $60,000 IN USED WATCHES LAST YEAR.
40% WERE IN BAD SHAPE BUT WHAT OFTEN OCCURS IS DAMAGE FROM PEOPLE
USING THE WRONG TOOLS AND THEN 50% ARE NEVER EVER WHAT THEY SAY THEY ARE.
I THOUGHT I WOULD PLACE SOME PICS OF TOOLS AND SUPPLIES AND EXPLANATIONS THAT MAY HELP THOSE WHO SELL ONLINE. I  HOPE THIS MAY ASSIST YOU & POSSIBLY ME AND MINE

IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO ADD. CONTACT ME. IF YOU WOULD LIKE
TO KNOW WHERE TO GO FOR ANY PRODUCTS OR TOOLS

WATCH HANDS ARE A NIGHTMARE. BESIDES UTILIZING TOOLS TO TIGHTEN THEM
OUR GREATEST WARRANTY WORK HS AND REMAINS THEM OLD TIMEY HANDS
NOW, DO NOT USE ANYTHING I SHOW YOU UNLESS YOU DO SO WITH CARE
A TINY DROPLET OF THE RED BELOW CAN SEIZE YOUR CANON PINION ET AL

IMG_2863.JPG (130348 bytes)

THE GREEN IS LIGHTER LOADING. IT IS EASY TO REMOVE. THE RED ON THE OTHER HAND..-- PUN NOT INTENDED--
TAKE 450DEGREES OF HEAT TO LOOSEN, TRUST ME. COST ME A FEW WATCHES, BUT, WHEN APPLIED CORRECTLY, IT WORKS WONDERS
I UTILIZE A SPADE OILIER AND WILL RUN A MINUTE DROP SAY BETWEEN HOUR HAND AND HOUR WHEEL
ALSO, THOSE PESKY SUB-SECONDS HANDS, A MINUTE I THE TUBE WILL KEEP THAT HAND ON THE JOB

IMG_2872.JPG (134233 bytes)

IMAGINE, THIS IS THE CHEAPEST WAY OF INVESTING IN SUPER GLUE
THIS STUFF IS GREAT FOR THOSE OLD STEEL HANDS LIKE POCKET AND TRENCH
IT IS USUALLY THE MINUTE HAND THAT, AFTER HOURS OF WORK, STILL GETS KNOCKED OFF
A DAP WILL DO IT

MY B ABY
YEA

I WORK FLAT OVER THE WATCH
SELF TAUGHT IS GOOD
BUT THEN I AM NOT A WATCH MAKER
I AM A HACKER
LOL

IMG_2898.JPG (210360 bytes)

THE BASE ALLOWS THE ABILITY TO SWING IT AROUND

IMG_2900.JPG (91545 bytes)

HOW ABOUT A ROCKSTER TRICK
THIS IS A BENCH PAD
I FIGURED A WAY TO KEEP TINY ITTY BITTY PARTS ON THE MAT AND NOT THE FLOOR
THOUGH THIS IS ONLY FOR PAD CAUSE I SPEND EVERY DAY AT LEAST 1 TO 2 HOURS HUNTING POP UP PARTS!

TAKE YOUR PAD
GET A QUART OF ACETONE
A QUART OF ALCOHOL

SOME WINDEX
AND HAND SOAP

PUT GLOVES ON!

POUR SOME ACETONE ON A PAPER TOWEL OR CLOTH
GENEROUSLY RUB IT INTO THE PAD
ALLOW TO SOAK 5 MINUTES
IT WILL TURN THE FINISH INTO A STICKY MESS
NOW, WET ANOTHER PAPER/ CLOTH WIT ALCOHOL
RUB IT INTO THE PAD
NOW

SPRAY WINDEX ON THE PAD
THEN TAKE IT TO SINK AND USE HAND SOAP GENEROUSLY

ALLOW TO DRY
WHAT HAPPENS IS THE STICKY GOES AWAY
BUT THE FINISH REMAINS "RUBBERY"
NOT DUST TYPE BUT SOFT FINISH TYPE
WHEN METAL PARTS HIT IT THEY STAY WERE THEY HIT

PS: TRY IT ON AN OLD ONE FIRST

IMG_2904.JPG (161168 bytes)

JULES BOREL HAS INEXPENSIVE HAND PUSHERS
THEY HAVE TO BE WORKED WITH SMALL PINS AND DRILLS
THE MINUTE HANDS ON POST TYPE MOVEMENTS WITH SUB-SECONDS
NEVER USE A PUSHER THAT FITS ROUND THE HAND HOLE
USE A FLAT TYPE TO PUSH-- THAT WAY IT ONLY SEATS EVEN WITH POST
{CANON PINION TOP}
FOR MINUTES WITH SWEEP SECONDS
USE FLAT WITH SMALL SWEEP POST SIZE HOLE DRILLED

IMG_2905.JPG (183433 bytes)

IMG_2906.JPG (91170 bytes)

THESE ARE HAND REMOVERS
I USE THEM FOR TRENCH HANDS

IN EQUAL MEASUREMENTS

IMG_2911.JPG (116890 bytes)

FOLLOWING THROUGH AND GOUGING THE MOVEMENT
PRACTICE ON AN OLD CASE

IMG_2896.JPG (99312 bytes)

CANON PINION TIGHTENER
WHEN A WATCH RUNS GREAT BUT HANDS DO NOT MOVE OR FEEL DUPER LOOSE
OR RUNS SLOW THOUGH THE SECOND HAND RUNS PERFECT
IT IS USUALLY THE CANON PINION. THE CENTER GADGET THAT THE MINUTE HAND FITS ON
THIS BABY TIGHTENS THE CANON PINION

IMG_2912.JPG (153591 bytes)

A MUST HAVE. EVEN WHEN SELLING 5TH TIER WATCHES
EASY MEASURE  ANY STEMS OR CROWN
INSIDE DIAMETER OUTER DIAMETER
HAS SIMPLE DIED POSTS AND TAPPED STEEL HOLE

IMG_2913.JPG (123528 bytes)

IMG_2916.JPG (198872 bytes)

IMG_2917.JPG (166716 bytes)

IMG_2918.JPG (165475 bytes)

THIS 1950'S 4 JAR CLEANER WORKS GREAT
I UTILIZE AMMONIA BASED CLEANERS FOR THE VINTAGE WATCHES
MADE BEFORE AND DURING THE INTRODUCTION OF THIS UNIT
WHILE UTILIZING A SPECIAL COATING SOLUTION IN THE FINAL RINSES
FOR ULTRASONIC, THERE IS ALSO A SOLUTION.
BOTTOM LINE IS THE ENTIRE MOVEMENT HAS A SEMI PERMANENT COATING
BE SURE YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON SOME OF THE FEW
WATCH REPAIR DVD/CD'S YOU WANT TO COMPLETELY STRIP A MOVEMENT
BUT THERE ARE TIMES [35%] YOU WILL REMOVE BALANCE AND MAIN SPRING
AND CLEAN THE REST IN ONE PIECE

TOP

IMG_2923.JPG (163741 bytes)

INEXPENSIVE COMPRESSOR IS SIMPLY A MUST FOR THOSE DARN CRYSTALS
THAT SEEM TO SNEAK "STUFF" AFTER YOU INSTALL IT AND THEN AGAIN AND AGAIN AND...

TO EVENTUALLY PLACE
