    You are describing a typical watch repair job. The best thing to do is to clean the jewels in a watch cleaning machine with watch cleaning solution and rinse. These machines have glass jars and a special basket to hold small parts. A motor with variable speed spins the basket in the cleaning solution. Oiling is done with a pin oiler and watch oil should be used not clock oil. John

    For my information, what is the difference between watch oil and clock oil? Is it just a different viscosity, or is it a different type of oil? Thanks - Don Root
