Some new acquisitions!

Recommended Posts

Recently picked up some new (old) tools, including a nice Bergeon/Favourite crystal press, Bergeon demagnetizer, Steiner Jacot tool and a seitz jewel gauge I've been looking for for ages.

Sharing my excitement! :biggrin:

Got my first use out of the Jacot tool today, trimming a balance staff pivot on a Molnija pocket watch.
Beautiful tool to use. Spool Propulsion Apparatus works well too.

I also picked up, belonging to the same watchmaker, some spare parts and movements, including this ETA 6497 I'm fairly confident was bespoke skeletonised.

Anyone have an idea what the pieces in the bottom picture are? partially finished movement plates? And the lower circuits seem to be on 35mm film, strangely enough.
