  1. Following a string of missteps that costed the integrity of an antique watch, as documented in our forum, and after taking some time to re-consider my future as a horologist, I decided to go back to the 'workshop' with a clear intention to right my wrongs. The subject that lies on my table is an 1890s Swiss ├ębauche which cannot run its full length and stops after a few hours from winding. Fig. 1. Dial view. Fig. 2. Rear view. The setting was not smooth to start with as the hands were missing some turns of the stem. So I removed the dial to inspect the minute and hour wheels. Fig. 3. Front view with hour and minute wheels visible. With the hour wheel removed, I could notice the action between the minute wheel and the cannon pinion was failing to happen. Fig. 4. Minute wheel-cannon pinion defective action. The culprit has been caught. Fig. 5. Minute wheel with worn teeth. Without the minute wheel, it turns out the watch can run like a century ago. This wheel will have to replaced to re-establish the normal watch operation. I hope you liked this post. Now, my appeal to you, fellow watch enthusiasts. Iif you have a minute wheel 11.2 mm in diameter (diameter for pinion is 3.7 mm) please do get in touch, as that wheel is for this watch.
