New Video Series - Vintage Waltham Wristwatch With Bent Hairspring

Recommended Posts

Thanks for another excellent repair video Mark.

It was nice to see an old vintage watch being worked on for a change. There were a few interesting things that I haven't come across, like the keyless work and barrel assembly, these are now filed away for future projects. :-)

Lovely stuff, Mark - a grade 360 Waltham from 1907. A very nice 7-jewel movement indeed.

 

I was once bitten when buying an early Waltham. I bought it knowing that the crown was missing - but what I didn't know was that, with watches of that vintage, the crown and stem were integral parts of the case, not the movement! And it's very difficult to get hold of cases from that vintage...

He fixed them (or used the "other pair") in the following videos! I believe it is a good thing to use them (the way they are) instead of a peg/plastic stick. They hold much better! Cheers!
