    I just checked with a pro friend of mine, you're good :). Center wheels on pocket watches should be an excellent use for a high pressure, slow movement oil.

    The reason I got confused was because I re-watche done of Mark Lovicks videos where he uses a deep blue grease. I thought that would be the colour of your HP1300. The deep blue one is 9501 and your, red one is HP1300. 9501 is listed as a grease and HP 1300 as an oil. But it works for sliding applications as well. My friend tells me 9501 would be better on surfaces that separate an re-engage, such as clutch wheel teeth.
