Peeking inside a watch movement

My macro experience is limited. I have one of the Canon close-up lenses and a couple of extension tubes for the M4/3 camera which I use most. These give me adequate results in the main.  Currently I'm trying to learn watch repair (mechanical, old) and usually photograph movements in the sequence of dismantling, the better to recall how to re-assemble.

What I'd really like to be able to do is photograph under the bridges which support the gear train. This would require some sort of tiny snorkel - which I very much doubt exists. About which I'd like to be wrong!
