Watch tutorial and watch test results
Hi, you gentlemen have been a big help. I'm going to put up a couple of links for people who are just as lost as me with this whole watch situation. This first link is about the internat workings of a watch, and just how its precise machinery tells you the time. It's really good, very straightforward and goes into sufficient detail to fully understand. Here it is-

This next link deals specifically with a particular movement, the ETA 2801; the movement that is in my watch. It seems to be a common movement, so it would be a good example, I think.
It is the full assembly of the time-piece. In fact, the on-line school that he attends looks awfully tempting to me. I would really like to look into that soon. It makes it a lot easier on e when I see someone that can take apart his watch and put it back together again. It gives me hope that I'll be able to do that soon.

I hope that this information is helpful to people just starting out. The task of taking care of my own watch seemed a very daunting task to me at first, but I feel a lot less pressure on me now. I'm sure that I have a LOT to learn, but reviewing these videos and talking with you fine people has made it a lot less stressful to think about.
