Alright here is the deal,
I am new to the hobby and trying to build up supplies to do basic maintenance on watches. by basic I mean cleaning and oiling. I am not looking to get real heavy into restoration right now, but I will be wanting to take apart the watches, clean the works and case in ultrasonic, clean the face and reassemble and oil the works. What I am looking for right now are some basic recommendations for the oil I should get that will bbe good all around wristwatch oil. I will be working predominatly on vintage hamiltons (1960's into the 70's) with some timex and a random other thrown in for now. because I am just learning I am buying workin and none working watches on the cheap until I feel more comefortable with disassembly and reassembly. The watches will range from self wide, automatic wind and electric.
I have read the baby jar method that HandyDan uses in the ultrasonic cleaner. My understanding is a jar of cleaning solution and two jars of rinse solution in the ultrasonic cleaner, moving the disassembled parts from the cleaner one jar of rinse and finally to the second jar of rinse solution before drying. First can someone confirm I am understanding that correctly? Second are there any movement parts you would not recommend putting in the untrasonic cleaner (jewels, mainspring, etc.)? finally are there any specific recommendations on the cleaning solution or the rinse solution?
Next is oiling the watches when reassmbling. I know just a dab'll do ya, so I am getting som dip oilers. What I do not knwo and can not find here is a recommendation on the type of oil to use. Will this work( http://www.amazon.com/Moebius-Multi-Pur ... B004GZQSZQ
) or do I need to upgrade to this (http://www.amazon.com/Moebius-Synthetic ... B0047BAL8Y
) or perhaps this will be fine (http://www.amazon.com/Liquid-Bearings-1 ... B0094KYXAU
) or maybe you have another recommendation?
Any input would be appreciated.
