Good advice from Jim,
you will struggle to see well with a 2x loupe on watch parts, Jim suggests a 5x loupe and he has more watch experience than me, my eyes must be bad as I mostly use a 3x but with very small stuff a 10x.
Always be wary of people who tell you a watch or clock has been serviced, for some people spraying a clock with WD40 is a service!
If that watch had been cleaned properly your pegwood should have come out spotless. Just check for obvious signs of dirt in the movement which you will see instantly with a more powerful loupe, this will give a good indication of if the watch has been properly serviced recntly.
Good luck,
