I have made available two new lessons for level two of the Watch Repair Course dealing cleaning the watch parts now that the watch movement is dissembled and all the parts inspected for wear and/or damage.
The first is a general overview and the second goes into further detail regarding cleaning a watch movement by hand.
c2.3 Cleaning Techniques
This lesson is an introductory overview of the cleaning process once a watch movement has been taken to pieces and all the parts inspected.
In this lesson you will be introduced to several cleaning methods including cleaning parts by hand, using an ultrasonic machine and, of course, using a dedicated watch cleaning machine.Open Video Lesson
