I did some soldering to repair a watch recently.
The tiny tracks lost continuity,apply a mini tipped silver conductive pen,prior to soldering! this helps the solder take to it!

Hi.

Just a fine tip mains voltage solder iron!
I tested the tracks first! found where continuity stopped! then scraped back some track insulation!
Next step? apply the silver conductive pen! then solder over that after! worked a treat! I had four track faults on one watch!
