I also found a 1919 elgin 16s pocket watch not working. going to look to make sure it's complete before I start on it. Gonna wait on the Waltham since I need more experience on jewel replacement and balance staff replacement.
Hello - i'm Elliott - I recently obtained a large number of old British car clocks, none of which work right now. I would like to get some advice on getting them running again. I'll post something in the main section!
Thanks for letting me join the forum!
No, I haven't because I don't do it. After cleaning I dry everything with a hair dryer, then I take the pallet and balance out and rinse the remaining parts in IPA. I'm a newbie but haven't had problems with this workflow, and I'm getting amplitude around 220º with very vintage Seikos (usually 700x, 6119 and 6309)
