Jimmy Jack: great videos. but the hissing kills my ears.

MadPrince567: This was just fascinating to watch. 

bunnspecial: To serve you better, how did this video help you?

barticoch: Very enjoyable video, thanks for going to the trouble of making it. : )

kovacs221: lol... "yay!" I enjoyed watching this; thanks for the tutorial.

samakaporkchop: u have the wrong tool to remove the hands

Guillermo Martinez: ur very bad at taking apart a watch =/

samakaporkchop: always remove the hairspring before the wheels....u can damage the jewel by the balance staff

Leo Rabich: Thanks a lot! I'll give it a shot. It's a $30 watch so it's not a huge gamble anyways.

bunnspecial: I have two showing the installation of the hack lever. One for the 2824 and one for the 2892.

Justus Barcomb: I asked the same question man haha

kafkaian: Just gotta get some tools! ;-)

Sun Shine: hi how to took off the knob we use to adjust time date? i use seiko automatic watch i dont know if it same like 3 turn the screw or other method.

methevas2: What oil did you use to soak the rusty parts??? Thanks

Miguelito63No1: Thanks

bunnspecial: Mostly ebay. Some from flea markets. To see most of my tools look at my video on tools I use to take apart or repair watches.

Babymaker twosixsevenfive: thanks, this really help!

DataRascal: I believe if you were to make a video tat showed how to take apart a mechanical watch, clean it, correct any errors, then piece it together again, you would have a saleable DVD. I would buy one. I have the book titled, Practical Watch Repair, by de Carle, but its so daunting to read, yet, a video is much easie to follow. I also like your dialoge when doing the task.

Justus Barcomb: Dude so thats for takeing the wrist watch apart right?

bunnspecial: @mysticrunnerbabe45 No.

Miguelito63No1: Hi again, I beeng loocking for the video of the Bulova 10 BPAC, did You made it, How do I may find it?, Thanks

Irunia427: @bunnspecial Thank you

red sands: great vid so you know the name and where i can but the tools i want to repaint the face. any info would be a great help. thank you sir. HAVE A GREAT DAY

samakaporkchop: u know ur work thanx for the video :)

JVideoW: Been checking out a bunch of your videos today. Nice work! Must be tough to do when you can't get close enough because of the camera. I've noticed that you don't let down the mainspring before taking your watches apart. Any reason why?

mysticrunnerbabe45: have any idea how to convert a regular watch to a solar powered watch using a solar cell?

ACoustaDC: "i;m gonna take this peice out.... YEAH!!" too funny. I love you video's... best watch vids ever!

Zygmunt Dep: I can't thank you enough for making this video. It's been extremely helpful to me in learning how things come apart. I have an old Waltham wrist watch that I'd like to try and fix, but I'm not sure exactly what's wrong with it. Hopefully can figure it out once I disassemble it!

bunnspecial: @Irunia427 Srewdrivers are EURO TOOL, SCR-730.01, made in France. You can find them on the internet. I did a video showing most of the tools I use. Maybe you want to check it out, dude.

JR3059: Love your videos. Those small parts can really fly sometimes. Have you ever tried to replace the roller or pallet jewels on a wrist watch. :))

DataRascal: Thanks for your reply. You couldn't tell me who is selling a DVD on watch repair, could you?

SS AH: yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeiiiiiiii... such a dork,,

kafkaian: Thank you. I have a number of cheapish Swiss jewelled watches which would be pointless taking to a professional given the cost, and these videos have helped establish some fundamental processes in a DIY approach to maintenance when I don't have to worry about the outcome. Very much appreciated. Ian, West Midlands, England, UK

DataRascal: Marvellous video. I'd like to see the video where the Bulova receives maintenance, then put back together. How do you remember where everything goes when putting it back together?

bunnspecial: I will think about a DVD. Some one else is already selling a DVD. You can see the samples on YouTube. You should look at The Watch Repairer's Manual by Henry B. Fried. I think it might be an easier read. The only book I look at by de Carle was on complicated watches. It is helpful on taking apart autowind movements.

bunnspecial: I have never worked on a modern Timex watch. The oldest watch I worked on was from the 1840's and the newest, a 1963 Bulova. The hands on both came off and were installed the same as in this video. I have never worked on a watch whose hands did not come off and on like this. I would think your Timex would be the same.

bunnspecial: Good luck with the watches and don't forget to let down the mainspring.

bunnspecial: @JR3059 Thank you for watching my videos. I would say about a third of the parts that flew away have never found, they must have made it over the border by now. I never had to replace a roller or pallet jewel. I know there is a tool for holding them in the correct location but I would not look forward to it.

Babymaker twosixsevenfive: do you have any video you fixing ETA movements?

bunnspecial: Don't remember the name but if you search for watch repair it will probably turn up in the results.

bunnspecial: I have two showing the installation of the hack lever.

Babymaker twosixsevenfive: The part where you remove the stem

Miguelito63No1: hi agai

Hung Tran: you are good repair like my father.keep up.hungwatch.2013

bunnspecial: @JVideoW I didn't let down the mainspring because the watch has run till it stopped. I check the tension before I take them apart and whatever tension is left is negligible. I try to do these videos as quickly as possible, so if I can leave something out I will. On some watches that are wound up and don't run I just clean and oil the balance pivots and that is enough to get it to run down. I only let down the mainspring when I have to. Maybe next time I will let down the mainspring..

kafkaian: Thank you for that advice.

The Giant Machine: Is there a way to take apart a watch to make it into a skeleton watch? Thanks!

Irunia427: What type of screwdrivers do you use?

Miguelito63No1: what can I do?

Leo Rabich: I want to take apart a modern Timex watch. Can I pull of the hands like you did and put them back on? :)
