Hi Randy!

Ebay has some selections of watchmaker tool kits that have the basic tools like a few tweezers, the watch holder, the stem puller, things like that.

These tools are not as one kit, but I can buy 5 or more tools from the seller and get a 5% discount

This particular pocket watch is suspended on the winding stem, and there is no way to open the front side, other than just removing the crystal. I’ve thought about just start taking some of the screws out to see if I could release the stem. Funny thing is, the screws are too tight, and when I started to try and loosen one screw, it started running and is keeping perfect time!

I’ll try and take some closer up pics for ya tomorrow, and see if you can make any suggestions.
