Thaitanium Super: do you have any video you fixing ETA movements?
Thaitanium Super: The part where you remove the stem
bunnspecial: To serve you better, how did this video help you?
Thaitanium Super: thanks, this really help!
Hung Tran: you are good repair like my father.keep up.hungwatch.2013
methevas2: What oil did you use to soak the rusty parts??? Thanks
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.
Miguelito63No1: what can I do?
Miguelito63No1: I have a Bulova L4 10CSC, running to fast, I set the adjuster all the way to minus, and still go fast, 4 minutes in 4 hours
Miguelito63No1: hi agai
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
bunnspecial: Thank you for watching. I only have a 10BPAC I want to take apart for a video. Close enough?
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
Justus Barcomb: Dude so thats for takeing the wrist watch apart right?
Justus Barcomb: I asked the same question man haha
bunnspecial: All watches start out solid like this one. For the skeleton watch they remove more material. You could do it yourself if you have a drill press or a milling machine. CNC would be better. Even wire EDM would work. I would not use a hand drill or a hand grinder because you need control. Don't get to close to the jewels or they might crack. You need a special tool to push out friction jewels.
The Giant Machine: Is there a way to take apart a watch to make it into a skeleton watch? Thanks!
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.
leoisforevercool: 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 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.
leoisforevercool: I want to take apart a modern Timex watch.
Can I pull of the hands like you did and put them back on? :)
kafkaian: Just gotta get some tools! ;-)
kafkaian: Thank you for that advice.
bunnspecial: Good luck with the watches and don't forget to let down the mainspring.
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.

bunnspecial: Don't remember the name but if you search for watch repair it will probably turn up in the results.
DataRascal: Thanks for your reply. You couldn't tell me who is selling a DVD on watch repair, could you?
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.
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.
bunnspecial: Thank you. I don't have a video showing the actual cleaning of a watch. I do have one were I described what I would do. I don't remember if I did a re assemble video for this watch but I have some for other watches. If you do it enough you remember how to assemble a watch. Plus the wheels only go in one way and if all else fails make a video if you think you will have a problem.
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?
ACoustaDC: "i;m gonna take this peice out.... YEAH!!" too funny. I love you video's... best watch vids ever!
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.
BornArtist2000: where the hell do u get those types of tools????
Irunia427: Thank you
bunnspecial: 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.
Irunia427: What type of screwdrivers do you use?
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!
SS AH: yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeiiiiiiii... such a dork,,
samakaporkchop: u know ur work thanx for the video :)
samakaporkchop: always remove the hairspring before the wheels....u can damage the jewel by the balance staff
samakaporkchop: u have the wrong tool to remove the hands
samakaporkchop: u could of broken the hairspring the way u took out the ring :o
bunnspecial: 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..
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?
jfdomega: Thanks for this video' I do like watch'ing them!
