  1. Providing you support the centre you could try and squeeze it down a touch using a pin vice. Warning without supporting the centre using something like a brass pin it will go out of shape.
  2. That is a great idea. Many here would like to see how it functions.
  3. Very nice, very nice indeed. There is a watchmaker on youtube who's name is Richard Perrett. If my memory serves me well, I think he did a vid of an alarm pocket watch. Worth a look.
  4. Welcome, enjoy the forum and yes there are many friendly folks here who are will to give guidance.
  5. Ok most likely it is not the correct ratchet wheel . Looking at the pic and the gearing it looks like it is a touch to high.
  6. Maybe the ratchet wheel is upside down. See below the PUW 61 http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&0&2uswk&PUW_61
  7. Welcome Risha, enjoy the forum.
  8. Thats going to be difficult to source. The only way will be to purchase a donor movement.
  9. The issue is the new Bergeon cannon pinion removers are not the same as the vintage version. The vintage Bergeon cannon pinion removers were far better and could remove the summer pinions. A dead straight pull/lift is essential for the cannon.
  10. Return it, any fiddling /case back opening could effect the warranty agreement.
  11. Looking at your pic remove the stem and the movement and dial should come out from the rear.
  12. I agree with AdamC re-canon pinion could be the issue. However if it is happening in only one position it points to a hand position issue.
