    Hi, I don't want to get involved in the watch side of this, except to say if you are in the Uk and that part has failed during warranty period, if the manufacturer (tag) will not play ball then discuss making a claim under 'latent defect'. You will be surprised how many corporations soon give you their full attention and you will soon get satisfaction. Look up 'latent defect claim' on google for more information. Good luck and I hope it helps

    Hi Dreggsie  Mark who is the site administrator, and who produces some excellent instructional videos has one on the very subject so I suggest you find it out and have a look. A picture or in this case is worth a thousand words.  It will be worth your time.

    Hi D, To remove, I push on the jewel housing from outside inward the Ebauche.
    Reinsert is from inside ebauche, with shock spring locked, ( empty of the jewels).
    I approach the desired repositioning ( for decent end shake) in small increments as I know of no tool that would drive the jewel in by calibrated micrometer action.
    I hope this helps.

    Thanks all for your reply. Apologies it’s taken a while to get back to you but I’ve been away from home and unable to use my pc. Anyway, I did order a nos balance complete for a 717 and I’ll keep you all up to speed on how the repair goes. Kind regards Deggsie

    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.

    I've heard of people using sewing needles with the end of the eye ground away to turn them in to a two pronged fork.
     
    Nice idea I’m going to make up a selection of size and give this method a go.

    Agree with the above, but in my limited experience playing around with damaged hairsprings, I get best results if the hairspring is removed from the balance staff. Then lay on a sheet of white paper. Sharpen your tweezers really fine. Take time, and come back to the job every 15minutes. Don’t be keen to finish in one go. When the damaged areas are teased back into form, keep laying the hairspring onto the cock and make final adjustments to the stud area so that it is perfectly concentric. Also pay attention to keeping the stud upright, of not it’ll push the hairspring out of flat when reinstalled into the cock. Take your time. Good luck

    I have been ‘tinkering’ with this ‘Aviation’ watch on and off for about 6 months. As ever, those beryllium copper hair springs are my nemesis. The problem with vintage watches is you never know if someone has fitted incorrect parts before you get to look at it. I just couldn’t get this watch to regulate - always running way too fast. It turned out the spring was too short so I had to sit tight and wait for a similar movement to come up on fleabay. Anyway, with the case polished, a new crystal fitted and sporting a brown leather bund from Germany, I’m rather pleased with this little Pin Pallet ticker.

    The problem with these small movements is that each time you manipulate things, you get close to disaster. And it's a game of numbers. Cheers.

    Hi. Just to update you with this. I found the crystal on cousins by chance. I find their search engine to be near useless. Even after finding the part by luck, I entered the cousins part number and it returned ‘no data was found’. I’m confused. However here is the part I found:

    So all that is required is to order and fit.
    Kind regards

    Hi Nucejoe. I now have the hair spring and don’t need any further components. She ticks away beautifully - to my wife’s annoyance, she isn’t keen on loud Pin pallet watches . I’ll report back on the movement, but believe it’s a newmark mk2.

    My father recently asked if I would service his wrist watch which he bought from the NAAFI at RAF Akrtiri in Cyprus during his national service days. The watch came to me as ticking, but the oil on the keyless works had gummed up like tar, making it almost impossible to wind without fear of doing some damage. Anyway, here are a few before and after photos.
