I have a 1960 Bull's Eye pocket watch. Its been sitting in a drawer for many years and probably could use a cleaning and oiling. The pocket watch has no jewels that I can see. The watch runs great. What would be a good oil to use on a watch that has no jewels? Would a synthetic with Teflon work? I read that slick 50 synthetic has Teflon and works well as a spring lube. The theory being the Teflon would act as bearings since no jewels are present. Pocket watch Jewellery Gas Circle Nickel

Although this "dollar" watch was never meant to be oiled, a VERY slight amount of light oil such as sewing machine oil or even slick 50 applied with the end of a toothpick to the visible pivots shouldn't hurt. Dip the toothpick end in the oil and then blot the drop on a paper, then touch the end to the pivots.
