First you must change your paradigm from Speedmaster to Slowmaster. To gain inspiration go to Youtube and watch as many Steffen Pahlow videos as possible. He works at a very constant and methodical pace. His watch restoration work is as good as anybody in the world can do. Next, do what works within the framework of you. I had trouble working with a loupe so instead I use powerful drugstore reading glasses for general work and a bionocular microscope for extreme close up work such as replacing the pilar plates and bridiges over the delicate pinions. Select tools that work well for you and use the skills and talents that you already posess to your advantage. If you have patience and stay with it you will succeed.
