Hello,

I’n not sure that this is the right place in the forum but as I am new and it said pocket watch I’ve posted here.

Having decided I wanted to take up a new hobby I’ve settled on pocket watches, understanding how they work and maybe one day being able to take one apart and fix it. What I am after from you all is some advice covering the following points:

- books or YouTube video to study to understand and learn the skills

- recommended tool kit sets to dismantle and reassemble a pocket watch (when I am brave enough)

- types of movements that are best to practice on (ease and simplicity as well as quantity of spare parts available)

- best sources for movements and watches, eBay, forum members, websites etc.

- anything else that would be helpful

 

Thanks,

Andy
