Purchase a few inexpensive tools, like a set of jeweler's screw drivers,
I'd say that this is the first thing that you should not skimp on... I did buy inexpensive screw drivers (Pakistan made) at first and now own a Swiss made set. For some reason, I cannot readily explain.... cheap drivers slip. This can lead to scratching a plate (best case) or damaging a hairspring (worst case).

Other things you can skimp on; not these and good drivers from the get-go will help build confidence.

My 2¢...

All I know is based on hard work & writing by others. I can only aspire to augment this body of knowledge. If I am wrong it is because of my own failings. -me
