  1. Thanks to everyone for your answers. Stuart, I found the 5b and 91 on the parts catalog for the Bulova 11BLAC but without the name of the wheel, I had no clue as to where to look. Where could I have found the description? Being new, I still have to learn the technical names for these watch parts.
  2. Hi I have a Bulova 11BLAC automatic movement that I am working on. On dismantling it, I attempted to pry apart two gears attached to one of the bridges. The shaft connecting the two snapped off. The gear drives the second hand. See attached photo. I had to attempt this in order to lubricate it along with one of the jewels on the bridge. Is there any way of insuring this does not happen again as well as finding the parts. I have checked with Cousins but they do not have the part. I have found parts listing for the movement but doesn't provide any relevant information. I am new t
  3. Thanks. Found it on cousins. Guess I need a lesson on how to use the cross reference. Sorry
  4. Hi. Am trying to find parts for my Adolf Schild St 1950/51 watch movement. I am new to the craft and am still learning about the various watch movements. I've searched the web but to no avail. The part is the Barrel Arbor. Attached is a picture of the movement. Thanks, Terry

  6. Hi. Have a Waltham wrist watch. Caliber 1155. I have looked everywhere for a balance staff but to no avail. Can anyone lead me in the right direction? Thanks Pics of the watch:
  7. Thanks to everyone. I measured the old spring couldn't find it at cousins but did find it through the "pocket watch database" and ended buying it on ebay.
  8. Hello everyone. I am new to watch repair and am trying to find a mainspring for my beautiful Waltham pocket watch. I looked up the serial number 16253552 and found the following pertenent info. Grade 161, model 1907, size 0s With that I ordered a mainspring thinking I had the correct info but it turned out entirely wrong. Can anyone lead me in the right direction? Thanks, Terry
  9. After a night of insomnia, I started watching watch repair videos on uTube and was hooked. I worked fixing office equipment for 33 years and found working in watches very similar although on a much smaller scale. I was looking for something to do in my retirement and found it. I am looking forward to picking the brains of the experts.
