I did get a chance to work on a customers watch however, this was an old pin-pallet alarm watch. The alarm, winding and hand setting were all not working.
To fix the hand setting, which was extremely rough due to wear in the keyless works I needed to bush the first intermediate setting wheel's post. I decided to go with a steel bushing to prevent future wear on the soft brass underneath. I took a picture of a few of the steps below.
