Well, it isn't the re-staffing that bothers me, it's the manipulation of the parts. When I screwed up my thumb, I screwed up my "hand" dominate thumb, as in the right hand. I still have the thumb, the nail grew back, but the end is numb, and I have a hard time with mechanical dexterity, as it were. I started with the big 18s American pocket watches, and staffing is a piece of cake, but as I progressed to finer higher end watches, I found that I need that right thumb for minute details to the furthest degree! Services and 95% of other work, not an issue, but tiny restaffs??? For example, I have a beautiful ladies Curvex that needs staffed, 2 211ss "nurses watch" that need staffed, but until I get back on my feet and get this hand working, then they will have to sit. Sad really....I would love to see some lovely lady wearing a beautiful vintage Gruen that I restored. (((((LONG LIVE GRUENS))))))

People you thought were your best friends will stab you in the back to your face!

Love them anyway.
