Damn cool watchmaking

Ever since I got involved with watches, I always dreamt of having the right skills of watchmaking. Having disassembled a watch before using the correct procedures in a watchmaker's lab, I understand how difficult it is to acquire these skills. Not only must you be mechanically adept, your hand control must be the same as a surgeon. Special handmade tools are also used since regular tools from the hardware shop cannot be used on the macro level of watch components.

Anyway, please read this guy's journey as a hobbyist watchmaker and how his own creation came to fruition. Salute!
