ok, long over due, and short on time!

1.) If you're just starting watch repair, DO NOT start on your Mother's/Aunts'/Uncle's/ or whatever, vintage highly prized watch. I suggest starting with an old parts Gruen just to familiarize yourself with the components and names of the same.
a.) Purchase a few inexpensive tools, like a set of jeweler's screw drivers, a loupe, a nice work lamp, and take advantage of what is available on Ebay. More often than not, you can get some really good deals out of the Swamp.
b.) You can buy some CD's online for beginners, and of course, there is always plenty of people here to help.
c.) I want some of the Gruenites to chime in and offer what they suggest can be purchased. I can talk forever, but there are folks out there that know this stuff as good as I do, and if not...way better!!!

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

Love them anyway.
