inkey2: (1) PLEASE PLEASE buy a cannon pinion puller....it will save you so much
(2) On swiss watches some screws are left hand thread. So when you can't
get a screw off you may actually be tightening it by mistake
(3) when removing the balance assembly it is safer to lie the movement
directly on the bench (not using the movement holder). If the balance slips
out of your tweezers from the height of the movement holder there is a darn
good chance the balance wheel will do a flip flop and tangle the hair
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. : )
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
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
methevas2: What oil did you use to soak the rusty parts??? 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!
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

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
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
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. :))
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
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
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?
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? :)
Miguelito63No1: Hi, I hope You can show mw How to take apart a Bulova 10 BOAC, automatic,
23 Jewels, I has been locking for this since 2 years ago, Thanks for Your
videos, I been learning a lot
bunnspecial: I assume the watch was running okay before this happened. What made the
watch run fast? Did it fall to the ground? Exposed to a magnet? There is no
way the adjuster is going to correct 24 minutes in 24 hours.
BornArtist2000: where the hell do u get those types of tools????
