The next step in watch work would be removing hands and dials, and there are special tools for removing hands and putting hands back on.
You sound like me! I'll be picking up the case back opener tool this Friday or Saturday. BTW, I am trying to get better at working with mechanical "wind up" type watches. ;0)
You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
