part is always a quick fix for most watch problems. But, I've found over the years that doing things "the hard way" also has some advantages. It teaches one to "think outside the box" and develop the ability to improvise when necessary. These skills can then have a carry over effect into other areas of life aside from watchmaking. Most times it will take much longer to do it the hard way, but that can help develop mental and physical tenacity that can come in handy on future watch repair jobs and actually make them proceed faster. And, of course, the improvisional approach can save one money as the cost of even non working spare parts movements continues to rise.
