Mechanical watches require much more service than quartz watches. Like cars, they must be in use and frequently lubricated to keep in good running condition. Despite the dwindling number of watchmakers, many people still have interest in mechanical watches. Whether an heirloom or a new purchase, a mechanical watch is an interesting and useful addition to the wrist on many different occasions. This course will teach you exactly how a mechanical watch works and how to clean, oil, and maintain the various parts inside. Whether put to use on customer merchandise or on your own vintage collection, maintaining mechanical watches is a skill that is both lucrative and interesting.
