  1. Thanks Frank! I shall have another go to centralise the coil when I have a go at changing the jewel/stone. I’ve got a few spare pocket watch parts which I’m hoping to have a replacement part, if not will have to buy one from somewhere... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I finally managed to get the spring looking almost correct, however it appears the jewel is worn as it’s not yet free starting [emoji2955] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. It may have bent during the cleaning process hence why it no longer works now, however it’s never worked properly, so who knows... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I probably will give it a go reshaping it as I’ve nothing to lose, I’ve also found in my stash of bits a similar HS which looks the correct type and same sort of size albeit on a balance with a shorter pivot - although need to measure the width of the pivot. It would be good to use a good example or use if correct. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. That’s when it ran Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. If I remember correctly it was about 350 seconds per day out [emoji51] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Would it be viable to reshape the spring? The watch did intermittently run previously prior to cleaning, however it was running way out with no adjustment which is probably down to the incorrect spring anyways... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Just found the number, it looks like 6980 192. Very difficult to see Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Some more closeup photos of the balance, although I couldn’t find any identification stamped on there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks for all your input [emoji106] I’ll have a look tomorrow and get back to you all [emoji2] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Hopefully these photos are good enough and show the spring position? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I left the endstone in place when I cleaned it all. The balance spring looks offset when fitted as it looks like the anchor point is too close to the centre, the spring doesn’t really engage with the regulator either as it’s too high compared to where the spring lays.

  13. Here are some more pictures, it does seem low but does move freely, although may have dislodged several years of old oil and dust.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Hi all, I’ve just stripped and rebuilt a Waltham Mass pocket watch, which was running previously but didn’t keep time and kept on stopping. I’m on the final assembly stage and trying to install the balance wheel with little success [emoji45] the spring looks to be too big for the fixing point as well as the regulator being higher than the actual spring[emoji848] I’ve not messed around with it other than an ultrasonic bath and some oil, and wondered if someone could offer some advice please? This is my first proper go for a full strip down so hopefully I haven’t broken it... Thanks in advance Carl Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Managed to (eventually)get the stem out, however couldn’t get the movement out? Do you have take the glass out to remove the movement on this one? I noticed there were tags within the watch case, loosening these off didn’t help either [emoji2955] Any help will be appreciated Carl Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
