  1. Hi All First time here and an "old timer" very new to watch movement cleaning, etc. I'm fascinated with this "mechanical surgery" known as watch repair and my question is which cleaner will work the best for a beginner with no cleaning machine and very little experience in this venture. I'm not sure how involved I wish to become with this fascinating skill, but with a few cheap mechanical watches acquired on EBay, I'm ready to disassemble and see what happens. I have some basic tools I purchased, but which cleaner would work better as an overall cleaner; denatured alcohol, white gas, coleman lantern fuel, or naphtha lighter fluid? Which if any might damage the pallet fork or other parts? Thanks for all the help and advise.
