This is a series of posts where I’ll be stripping down and cleaning an Helvetia gents watch.
Being my first attempt at horology, I don’t expect things to go straight forward but let’s give it a go.
Here are the tools i’ll be using for the project.
- Basic watch movement holder
- brass tweezers
- 0.8mm, 1mm, 1.2mm precision screwdrivers
Step 1 sees the movement removed from the case, there’s normally small hole to release the winder (crown), the pointers are removed next and finally the watch face itself. You’re left with the movement, ready to be dismantled.
