Using an ETA Valjoux 7750 movement is a great choice, as it's a reliable and popular movement with a lot of parts and upgrades available.

As for DIY watch kits, there are many options available online from various retailers. Some popular ones include the "Seagull 1963" and "Parnis" brands, both of which offer affordable mechanical watch kits. Another option is to buy the parts individually from watch parts suppliers, such as Esslinger or Ofrei, and assemble them yourself.

When it comes to assembling a watch, you'll need some basic tools, such as screwdrivers, pliers, tweezers, and a case opener. You may also need a watch press and a movement holder to ensure you don't damage the delicate movement during assembly. It's important to take your time and work carefully, as watch assembly requires precision and attention to detail.

If you're interested in learning more about watch assembly and the tools you'll need, there are many resources available online, such as YouTube tutorials and watchmaking forums. Additionally, you may want to consider taking a watchmaking class or workshop to learn from experienced watchmakers.

Overall, assembling a watch can be a fun and rewarding project, but it does require patience, attention to detail, and some basic tools. Good luck with your project!
