Level of Difficulty
I’m going to be honest, there are quite a few things that I don’t recommend a beginner do, and this may be one of them. A lot of disassembly of the watch’s upper structure have to be examined, and you are dealing with very delicate parts here.
Hands which are easy to bend, and dials which can scratch if you are not careful. If you do decide to perform this on your own, use as much caution as possible, and take your time. There is no rush to pull this apart to find the problems.
