Restoring a Tissot 1853 watch found on the ground

TISSOT 1853 Restoration old watch | Restoring

I initially found this video on Twitter and it’s the most intricate restoration I’ve ever seen. Normally, I watch Game Boy restorations but watching this Tissot 1853 watch come back to life was beautiful. Professional watchmakers, or horologists, often have to obtain watchmaking degrees at technical schools to ply their trade with watch companies. So this kind of repair is no mean feat.
