  1. thanks for the info about the history of the maker, i am going to fit two new springs anyway.
  2. that makes sense to me as that is the chiming spring and it would chime and cuckoo ok for about half a day and then it would stick with the cuckoo staying out.
  3. yes it is the short one that was in the chiming /cuckoo train, i have now ordered 2 new springs from cousins based on the size of the going train spring. thank you for the advice.
  4. Hi Watchweasol, ithink the label says teutonia clock company. The spring and barrel on the left are the chiming train ones.
  5. Hi All, i have a large antique cuckoo clock that on the winding train was running for 2 days but on the chiming / cuckoo train would only run for a day just about, as it needed a service i have taken it apart to find that although the barrels are the same size the cuckoo spring is a lot smaller . the winding train spring is height 22mm , thickness 0.45, length 176 cm, barrel dia 44. The cuckoo train is H 19mm , T 0.50mm, L 160cm. i am assuming they should both be the same size and that someone has done that as a quick fix rather than fit the same size spring, so i just need to know can i refit
  6. thank you will check it out and than you for the diagram.
  7. Hi all, i have a nos 7736 but the chrono hand will not reset to 12, it always stops just short before or after, i have tried 5 times to remove and refit the hand by resetting and then keeping the pusher held in so i am thinking maybe there is an underlying problem. i am going to part service that part of the watch before i try again in the hope that might help as the movement has not been used in years but is there a way of using an eccentric to finely adjust the hand and if so where is it located, also does anyone know where i could get a proper chrono movement holder, i looked on cousins but
  8. they are just plastic discs and you just line them up as you would normal hands but they were a nightmare to refit and try and keep level, the hour one was loose on the pinion and i had to tighten the hole and i spent a good hour on the seconds disc as there was only a gap of about 1mm between that and the minute disc before i realised that i was fitting it upside down DOH! hence no gap because there is about a 3mm gap between each disc to make sure they do not rub together and that is why the watch is so deep about 15mm. i wasnt happy with the rotor because it was very black and pitted but th
  9. Yeah that makes sense given the abuse they are likely to get.ha ha
  10. i bought it in germany, the dealer couldn't tell me anything about it, but i think you are right about its possible uses. thank you
  11. yes the screw locks the case back in place. im guessing if it is military and attached to webbing that stops it unscrewing.
  12. Watch is now back together and working fine so I think I dodged the bullet on this one.
