    Thanks for the reply everyone. As I’m just starting out I think I’ll try the Novostar route and see what happens. In answer to your question as to what I’m currently interested in servicing, that would be an elgin and an illinois pocket watch, both around the 1923 date. I’ll practice on these a few times and then take a shot at a wrist watch. My hope is to get good enough at this to be able to run a small side business that makes just enough money to support my watch buying habbit, lol.

    I would be nice to see you add a video that detailed the type of oil used when you oil the various parts of the watch. I’m sure I’ll discover this in my reading, but just to see it done by someone really reinforces what I’ve read.

    Thanks again for all your help.
