I'm looking for help identifying the movement in this watch. Date letter (London) seems to date this case to 1914, sponsored by Stockwell & Co. I love these types of watches despite the value not being exceptionally high and would love to repair this. The issue is that the balance and hairspring are kaput along with at least the dial side of the balance jewel/cap jewel, as well as there being at least one screw missing (I know in photos that the hour wheel is missing, I took it off so as not to lose it). I figure the best way to go about it is to buy a replacement movement in better condition (and ideally a higher jewel count) and either swap it or scavenge the necessary parts from it. Issue is that I can't seem to identify the movement at all. I tried using my old Bestfit catalogs to try and identify the setting lever etc but can't match it up. It seems to be a 13L but that's as far as I've gotten. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hello, I recently serviced a W&D 1915 trench watch and to my horror discovered that the balance staff was worn, this meant that the watch would run dial down but not in any other orientation. I believe it is a BTCo (Damas) movement but not sure on caliber. If anyone can identify the movement and calibre and knows where spares can be sourced I'd be very grateful. Alternatively if anyone can suggest a replacement period correct movement that would be brilliant. Thank you Kieran
