Well my cheap ebay set of watch tools turned up and as usual buy cheap buy twice applies. Being an engineer I really should know better!
They served their purpose though seeing if i had the patience and hand for this watch repair and I thoroughly enjoyed it (just a quartz/hands pulsar movement out) I have 3 10 quid mechanical watches coming for some practice and learning along with a parnis for my cheap collection along with further learning. My best watch is an omega seamaster pro quartz but i love mechanical watches.
So my question is what is a good recommendation for the basic tools below please? I have been looking at burgeon kit and while things like screwdrivers I can see there being a decent price to pay I think the things such as case vice could be just as good cheaper (based on larger tool experience)
1) Screwdriver set
3) Other tools maybe required??
4) Eye loops (I have a 4x magnifier glass on stem at moment.
My main aim at present is to strip a watch and reassemble to learn along the way.
My eventual plan is to make my own case and maybe strap and insert purchased movement. I have lathe, milling machine, 3D printer (on way) for prototyping etc.
Any guidance much appreciated.
