I’d say the jewels in your watch are worth maybe few cents each. You can buy well over 100 jewels for like $10.

Not worth any work to remove them. They are synthetic most likely.

Hi, the link for the full interactive instructions for disassembling / assembling the movement seems to be outdated (flash no longer supported by Adobe). Do you have an updated version?
