From the Bob Tascione's web site: qThe Tascione Pocket Watch Repair Course (Great for Wrist Watches Too!) consists of 5 info. packed videos and the course manual qPocket Watches and Why They Workq. This course was designed for the person who would like to learn the dying art of mechanical watch repair but doesn't have the time or funds to attend a traditional watch repair school and has discovered how difficult it is to learn from books and diagrams alone. The course manual describes, through the use of many detailed diagrams and simple to understand text, how and why a watch works. The first 3 videos and the manual have been linked through the use of an on screen timer. When something is being explained in the text that might be a little difficult to understand, such as escapement action, I give you the exact point to fast forward to on a video to see exactly what I'm talking about. This system makes sometimes difficult to understand topics unbelievably simple to learn. Everything you'll need to know to do cleaning and general repairs on a watch with a minimum of tools is in this course. You'll learn in a few hours tons of hints, tips and tricks that took me years to learn through trial and error. Not only will you learn what to do but even more importantly I'll show you what not to do. The manual even has a chapter called qBusiness Tockq for those of you who might want to take advantage of the lucrative watch repair service market. This chapter shows you correct pricing techniques and work load limits. You'll find tons of great close-up shots throughout all 5 videos demonstrating everything from removing the movement from the case to the correct use of a staking set for many types of operations. Change mainsprings, cannon pinions, balance staffs, hairsprings, and much much more. I also tell you where to go for parts, tools, and certain specialized services. One mistake can easily cost far more than this course, and most of what I teach I learned through hard earned mistakes because I had no one to show me the few simple techniques that I demonstrate in these videos. So if you think you might enjoy watch repair then please consider this course.qThe course manual describes, through the use of many detailed diagrams and simple to understand text, how and why a watch works.
