Roller for 19" Omega Pocket Watch

Question

I have a 100 year old Omega pocket watch with a 19" movement. The plateau is broken. Huge crack in it and now it's broken in half! Does anyone have a spare I could buy? Or know of a good source? Nothin on eBay sadly.

There were some different variants of the 19 ligne movement, they al had a bit or bob different so you might have to specify which one you have.
Here is an example of an Omega 19''' LOBNN I happen to have lying around.

Yes with a quick look at the serial numbers , mine 5543286 and yours 5557368 indicate they are made at the same time period around 1919-1920.
The movement is not for sale but I can donate it to you. I have a couple more in my stash so I dont have any use for this one.
If you haven´t changed adress I'll send put it in the mail for you tomorrow.

Wow. You are so kind to me! I really am happy to pay for these parts and postage if you ever want me to. It’s very generous of you. But rest assured that one day I’ll pay the favour forward to somebody else learning the trade.

The address is the same. Thanks again HSL. I’ll post some pics when this one is up and running. I’ve ordered a leather Albert. Let’s try and bring the pocket watch back into fashion. I always wondered what that tiny pocket in my jeans was for!

And here it is completed. It's been a long process. Lots of cleaning and polishing, a new balance staff, replacing 2 cracked jewels, all kinds of escapement issues. Thanks HSL for the roller! Everything is running great now after 12 rounds of dynamic poising. It's within 30 seconds per day in all positions which I can live with. But most importantly within 8 seconds dial up and pendant up. Pretty good for a century old watch.
