I have a 1877 Waltham railroad pocket watch sz 18, the watch runs for maybe about 4-5 hours but then stops, so I took it apart and I notice one of the teeth on the ratchet wheel has broken off. Could this be the problem? If so, where can I find a replace part? Everything else inside the watch seems to be ok.
Hello! I just want to give a head's up to anyone who's opening a jungahns J687 movement - the ratchet wheel screw is left-hand threaded. I found it the hard way - I had to replace the barrel arbour It didn't have the usual 3 line warning. Also I was used to the crown wheel screw being left-threaded.
Hello, I have a watch with a screw down crown and hacking feature.The watch is NOS about 5 years old and it is an automatic watch and I've noticed when I unscrew the crown, change the time, and screw it back the balance wheel/balance spring stops and starts, doesn't move or moves very slowly. When I move it about a bit it starts moving slowly for a while then stops, when I tilt it it moves but slowly. At first I thought there must have been dust within the movement, but when I unscrewed the crown and fiddled with it a bit, pulled it all the way out to change the hands and pushed it back in and screwed it back the balance wheel works as normal, whether I move it about or not it moves as it should. Is there something wrong with the watch? is it time for a service? Is this a serious issue? Should I stop using the watch until it is fixed? Thanks for reading and I hope someone could answer, sorry if it's all jumbled up I'm not sure how to explain it.
