Can anyone please tell me what the 4 (or 3) most common lubricants are in watch servicing? And solvents?


There are several youtube videos on this topic. Id suggest looking into the channel called "chronoglide". He is a very experienced watchmaker. He shows cheap and expensive methods to clean/oil movements. He also explains what solvents you need/can use. And on which places you SHOULDNT use said solvents..


I'm building my oil catalog and already have (all moebius): 8000, 8200, 9000, 9010, 9014, 9020 and D-5.

Check oils/greases descriptions at Moebius website (https://www.moebius-lubricants.ch/en).

I also would strongly recommend these videos:

Watch Lubrication - A Purchasing Guide for the Hobbyist - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0Ube3ISeB4


About solvents/cleaning as a hobbyist I usually go with Benzine (I heard that also could be naphtha or lighter fluid) and mainly for rinse isopropyl alcohol (IPA).


Thanks guys
