  1. Hi everyone, I have been failing to open this Wittnauer watch using prying tools. Does it need special tools or techniques to open it? Thank you,
  2. Is there a tool for installing the echalon shock spring as used by Seiko? I tried with two pairs of tweezers and it is so difficult. Mark makes it look easy. When I tried it it pings everywhere. I even tried putting a thin plastic bag over it while trying to engage the ends. Failed miserably. I've had to hold this one in abeyance till I get the nerve or the tool to try again.
  3. Hello! Is it even possible? I believe it is friction fit. Thank you!
  4. Hello and greetings to all!, I have 2 "tools" perhaps. I don't see a spot for it on my staking tool. Let me back up as well. I have introduced myself on Watch Repair Talk. I said I am a fledgling watch repairer.However, I am more like still in the egg. I have fixed quite a few watches and destroyed even more. Its ok though, I get a box of watches and practice. One time I even got a great deal on a box of watches price wise and it contained 2 working Suunto watches and even a couple of watches that were solid gold. You have to admire and love young adults that sell granddads watches on eBay for pocket money without a clue what they are selling. If people spend a few bucks to have it appraised it would knock their socks off at what the watch is really worth. Sorry I am babbling . If anyone kind enough that knows what these "Tools?" are I would be grateful and possible name my next child after you. The one thing you can not see from the picture is some or most of the hole are tapered. Thank-You Matt H. Clearwater, Florida

  6. Hey Guys, Back again with a new piece of equipment. I found this whilst researching what to buy for refurbishing bands and cases. It's called the JoolTool, and was invented by a lady named Anie, a jeweler with over three decades in the trade. One of the main issues when polishing bands and cases with a standard wheel buff is the skills you need to develop to maintain the lines of original factory finish. One wrong move on your typical round wheel buff, and you can devalue a piece considerably ... well not any more!! This is one smart lady, and she has designed a simple and affordable buffing system that takes all the fear out of buffing, polishing, and reapplying the original brushed finishes to any item. Here's one of her video demonstrations : Remove scratches and polish a Cartier watch Here's the company website: JoolToolUSA This is very high on my purchase list for my home workshop!!
  7. If I am not mistaken, brass tweezers are softer, hence better for handling more delicate parts to avoid scratches or marks, is that accurate? If that's the case, why not just use brass tweezers all the time? What are your understanding about the usage of brass versus stainless steel tweezers? Thanks
