  1. Hi all, Does anyone know where I can get a replacement stem for a sekonda gents 3101 please? UK preferred.
  2. I think it must be an Elgin, actually, just found this. https://pocketwatchdatabase.com/search/result/elgin/12796 Comments please
  3. Thanks ITProDad, The case and all the larger brass bits of the watch movement all have the same serial number 12796 although the one part of the case has the 1 and 2 stamped 2 and 1. The stamper possibly picked up the wrong stamp LOL. Hallmarked Chester UK and year O which I believe is 1897 ish. But it's not an Elgin, or a Waltham. Could it be a Ball Hamilton http://www.pocketwatchrepair.com/histories/ball.html from 1897 sent to England?
  4. Hi Everyone, New to this. Have a pocket watch as seen in the pictures. I've stripped it down so far. I have done a bit of quick learning by researching it. I believe it is turn of the century. All parts are serial numbered the same 12796. It's not a fusee but not sure if it is a "going" or "motor" barrel. The mainspring may be a T End and I am still working out size needed. From the pics is there a diagram somewhere for parts? Is this an English watch or is it one of the turn of the century mass imported American one? I believe it was sold by a "watchmaker" R. Richardson who may have only been a seller. The case is silver and hallmarked as shown possibly 1895? The case maker I believe is C.H possibly Charles Horner. Who is the watchmaker is the big question. Whats parts are missing? Any help would be great as I am itching to put it all back together again. I will need some hands for the dial as well, if anyone can advise it would be appreciated. There are also inscribed numbers on this inside of the case, servicing references maybe? Thanks.
  5. Well I'm guessing the whole in the barrel outside edge and the barrel "lid" may align to hold the T?
  6. I'm guessing, as these are all the parts I have for the barrel there is more than the spring missing. I will layout the parts of the watch later in the hope that we can identify if the watch is worth putting back together. So far I have found it was in a CH (Charles Horner) case which is assay stamped and the seller was R.Richardson Middlesborough Serial # 21769. Circa 1897! It's definitely not a Fusee or one of the American makers, so the UK maker remains a mystery. Any help would be great. As I have already cleaned the solid silver case.
  7. Hi Oldhippy, Thanks for the advice the dims are 17.5mm and 2.5mm and the arbour has a notch and a square/rectangular peg on it for the spring bridle. Terminology learnt through research over the last 2 weeks so hopefully, I am making sense.
  8. Hi everyone, New to this, and looking for a mainspring for an R.Richardson, non fusee pocket watch. Thanks in advance Joe
