    First vintage Bulova (or any watch for that matter) I was able to 'repair'.....yay!

    Got this Bulova for a couple bux figuring I can experiment cleaning, polishing, etc on it. Seller said stem would not stay inside. So I watched a couple good Youtube vids on the subject and kinda figured out how to do it. Even the finest watch screwdriver I had (cheap set) was way to thick for this itsy, bitsy stem screw so I had to file it down. Long story short, she now works!

    Is there some kind of online course (youtube preferably) where I can learn some more (easy) stuff?

    Hi Palex19. Do a search on ebay for Chicago School of Watchmaking DVD. It's around 20 bucks and is a good source of knowledge. You stole that Bulova. That's a nice looker.
