  1. One more question. What kind of lubricant would you guys recommend for this escapement? It deals with a lot of friction. Would 9010 suffice?
  2. That's definitely the one! Thank you! Your help is much appreciated. So can these be adjusted by use of a timegrapher?
  3. That's pretty close, except on my movement, the balance staff has a normal table roller with the impulse jewel pointing down like any other I've ever seen. I'll definitely take a pic later. I bought this watch for fairly cheap and didn't know it had this type of movement.
  4. Thanks for the answers! I can take some photos, but the movement has been re-assembled now. Perhaps a macro lens can show the assembly with a better view. I'll give it a shot.
  5. Hello folks, I've just completed a restoration of a pocket watch, but it's some no-name brand, with no logos/names on dial or movement. Since I'm fairly new to this, I was wondering if anyone could help me with learning a little more about this type of movement. It seems like a late 1800's watch, key wound and key set. What sets it apart from any other that I have so far worked on is that this particular movement does not utilize a pallet fork. Instead, the impulse jewel directly engages the escape wheel. I have never seen such a movement and a google search does not help. Would it
  6. Hello all, I'm not sure if looking for parts on these forums is permissible, and if not, then I apologize in advance. I'm nearing a restoration of an Elgin 8s movement. Only problem is, I'm missing the case for it. As mentioned it is 8s and a hunter style. I'm searching ebay, etsy etc... but to no avail so far. Does anybody have such case they would sell? I didn't know that this size would be so hard to find. Thank you for any input/help anyone can provide and again, I apologize if I break any rules. Regards,
  7. Hello Everyone! Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. Looking forward to being a member of this forum. Mark's fantastic YouTube channel brought me here. Looking forward to learning more and exchanging ideas and information. Best regards, Marek
  8. As a photographer, I always enjoyed photographing watches as much as I enjoyed wearing them. As a tinkerer, I started off with restoring old digitals, and then moved on to mechanical watches. Still pretty new to this, but loving it. Mark's channel was of HUGE help and also a source of inspiration. Looking forward to participating in the community!
