The Tools You Need

When learning how to service a watch, or as a hobbyist and or collector, you should always have some tools ready to service your watch, and this is my recommended list of tools to have.  By no means, does this list include all the tools you will need to perform repairs.  I’ve only included those tools I think you should keep around to do general service and maintenance to a mechanical watch or to perform simple service to quartz watches.

Servicing watches is a rather complicated task and requires a lot of patience when doing it.  Small parts, mechanical know-how, and an understanding of how everything goes together and works is a must.  Some of these tools will make it easier for you to perform service to a watch, but, there is no substitute for a very careful hand and a lot of time.

Here is a list of the basics…  Not all of these are needed, perhaps you don’t need a bench, or lights, or you possibly already have these tools.
