    Can anyone suggest a book or two on repairing pocket watch cases? It seems more and more when I pick up a watch for repair off of ebay the case stem pulls out of the case I guess from too many people not understanding what a lever set watch movement is. Anyway I need some reference material. Thank you.

    Hi tracker,

    To understand the basic tools and techniques, I think you'd be better looking for a book on silversmithing to start with, and I'm sure there are plenty of those available.

    Regards,

    Graham
