And it’s happened, I’ve snapped the pivot on the escape wheel. This pocket watch has caused me so many problems, cost a pretty penny in spares and a lot of my time. The owner popped in to see me yesterday to see how it was going. And today after I told him I’m just about done whilst re trying the escape wheel I snapped a pivot. so I’m onto cousins to get some 0.02mm pivot wire and eBay for some micro drill bits (or maybe cousins ) and it’s time to set up the lathe and attempt to drill and fit a new pivot. cannot wait to give this watch back it’s been nothing but trouble. Oh well some things are sent to test us, and out of my collection of about 100 cylinder escape wheels not one is the same as this one!!!!
