  1. It looks very much like an Ansonia movement. Check out pics of these movements to see the assembly of their pendulums.
  2. Looking at this site they both have the same Balance staff. However I am not sure they have the same balance assembly but it is highly likely. https://www.balancestaffs.com/eta.php

  6. If everything is perfectly clean, lubricated and you have no damaged jewels it must be lack of power. Check the mainspring, barrel and barrel jewels.
  7. Auction houses can be fruitful but be careful you need a close inspection which is usually offered a day or two before the actual day of the auction. Omegas ,Rolexes etc that are not working especially vintage are to avoided. If there is one problem when looking for antiques, watches etc is the sellers use the internet as we all do, so rarely anything is sold at a true bargain price.

  9. Have you tried this company, https://www.balancestaffs.com/product.php?all=long With this company you can put in dimensions and do a search as well.
  10. Depends on the size of the spring you require. I have modified a "Shepards hook" for small return springs see link below: https://www.cousinsuk.com/product/shepherds-hook-springs-wristwatch
