i don’t write reviews but i wanted to express thanks for this demonstration. i watched other videos about the same procedure and found them long,discouraging and complicated. your method was super easy bc i had all the tools already available. you can even substitute an item, if you have any imagination at all i am now able to wear my favorite watch and i am grateful for the money i saved for not having to go to the jeweler. in a nut shell,clear and precise explanation!
