Today this package from sweeden came in mail, containing 11blacd escapement wheel, donor @rogart63 .
Following fourteen years of in to do box I will hopefuly bring my bulova snorkel back to life and soon, I will post a picture of it on watch of today thread.
Thank you Rogart63 for this gift, very precious to me. In appreciation of your generosity and in your name, I make sure to pass on three winding stems to the novices and three balance staffs to experienced learners.
I have no problem shipping small parts.
A Sekonda Classique from the same junk pile lot as the Seiko 7N32 above.
Not quite as attractive, arguably, but not bad for 1/7th of the £3.20 the whole lot cost (or to put it in context, less than the cost of a Mars bar).
Other than very slight pitting on the clasp, and of course a flat battery, there was nothing wrong with it.
A quick polish and a fresh button cell and it joins the club.
