The art of watchmaking is extremely intricate. Each watch contains hundreds of tiny individual parts, many of which require specialist tools. While sophisticated machines no do some of these delicate jobs, many watchmakers still require mechanical movement tools to assemble and repair timepieces with extreme precision. Tools like jigsaws, scribers and crown winders are all extremely useful tools that may come in handy for either a professional or amateur watchmaker.
Gauges and measuring tools are used to document, repair, plan and communicate sizes. Widely used by watchmakers, jewellers and gemmologists, these precision set gauges are ideal for measuring small parts. Many of the gauges and callipers can measure the inside diameter as well as the outside diameter of an object using calliper arms that will reach into hard to reach places. These versatile gauges are the perfect addition to any workbench: they can measure millimetre size, watch bands or watch hands, gemstones, ring sizes, and much more!
