Once, back when cars could still be main­tained by peo­ple, rather than only by com­put­ers, there was a pub­lisher called Hanes. It grew big and fa­mous for its man­u­als, one for each ma­jor model of car, that taught the DIY en­gine tin­kerer how to main­tain and fix his mo­tor. This then, is the Hanes equiv­a­lent for watches. Aimed at the be­gin­ner, The Watch

Job­ber’s Handy­book tempts wannabe watch­mak­ers to have a go at dis­man­tling and clean­ing their own time­piece, and thus learn how it re­ally works hands-on. Note: do­ing so may void your war­ranty. Like car man­u­fac­tur­ers, watch man­u­fac­tur­ers don’t re­ally want mere mor­tals mess­ing with ‘their’ watches.
