KT-22 or 9010/9020 for gear train lube?

Question

Hi all

I hope someone can answer this quetion or put me on the right track.

Can KT-22 be used in place of 9010 or 9020 for gear train wheels. It says it can on the label but am I confusing "gear train" with "gear train wheels"? This KT-22 I have is a grease where I thought 9020 was an oil?

Hope someone can put me right here.

Cheers

I don't actually own kt-22 but i know what it's like, there's no way you could try to lubricate gear train jewels with it, surely. so in short no it cant stand in for 9010 or similar. Something else is probably meant? something lost in translation?

Says on label: "for small gear trains in watches, clocks and instruments. Remains in gear train, will not ball up, break down or gum up."

I guess that's why I am asking, it's very sticky.

9010 or 9504 then for train jewels?

So that were all in the same page I have a link below  it was just the first one that came up googling it shows the lubrication talks about its use.. You will note the word grease versus oil is used in the description.

It depends upon the size of the watch for your lubrication requirements. Usually very small watches require a lighter lubrication than larger watches. Then  there's a certain degree of personal preference as to what people like.. So 9010 is universally regarded as the lubrication for balance wheel pivots..  9020 works good for gear trains.

Then Moebius 9104 Synt-HP 1300 Is considered a very heavy oil.  To get an idea of what I mean by light and heavy oils the second link lists lubrication's with their viscosity.
