Pocket watch jewel needed.

Question

Hello, everyone!

A watch that I have been working on, needs a third wheel bridge jewel.

It's a very old watch, so I guess there is going to be problem with finding 

something suitable.

Anyway, if you can offer a suggestion or two, I'd be very happy to listen.

Thanks.

Not the best suggestion I'm sure, but if all else fails you can buy an assorted lot of jewel holes and spend an evening picking up each and every one, trying it for size, then discarding it in the slowly receding hope of finding "The One".

If you can’t get a jewel, you could fit a brass bush.

That assumes the OP has a watchmaker's lathe, and the ability of using it. I think if that was the case he wouldn't have asked in first place.

Sometimes I assume to much. I will give myself a slap in the face.:D

I have bunch of similare looking bridge and no idea of thier identification, watchmaker estate. 

I will look if I know what size to find.

No problem shipping small items like a jewel.
