I know we have some guys here who like and appreciate finer watches.

I came across this guy on youtube. Does watch repair/restoration. Well shot, good voice over etc. I really enjoyed seeing how these go together. Though you might too.

This one's an Omega but he does a lot of others. Neat if you're into it.

You see some of the small screws and such and wonder how they made the damned things. I get why some of these watches command the money they do and I love watching the movements.

Do not sneeze or cough on your bench when the movements are disassembled...

Thanks for posting. Going to watch a few of these tonight. The skill required and time invested, materials etc….the value to cost is relatively fair.
