You're a watchmaker, or just have some tools?

Download the schematics pdf for each movement from www.eta.ch – select the Customer Service tab, click on the CS portal, then select the Technical Docs tab in the new tab/window opened.
You’ll find all the calibers listed in the drop down on the right.

Tell him to put the tip of his index finger on top of the screwdriver. It'll feel much steadier!

Not enough people in the trade. Would be cool if he pursued it, even as a hobby.

"Opportunity" is the big thing with kids. We always tried to provide our kids with lots of opportunities to find out what they liked.
Great photos.

Look what Mrs bought me as a present . . . .

A set of Beco - not Bergeon or Horotec - but good enough for me

Actually I just found out that the Horotec blades fit in them
