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.

Regards

    • Are you sure it is the correct tube. When I have fitted they are just friction fitted. If just a snug but not a tight fit using loctite will work.

    • Cheers mates!! Im working on a Seiko 7123A, im ususally not doing quartz, they are so unpredictable I think... Or is it I dont know them good enoght.... anyway. I have oiled all bearings, cleaned, og had to fix a little on the quick set on the date and day. And now the quick set work, the date and day skifts when I turn th hands 24 hours. The movment runs fine, and keeps time. But when is shall shift date and day during the night, the movment stops around 01.30, but the second hand works. It seems like the movment cant drag the calender work through the shift.   Can somebody pls help me with what the cause is??
    • Famous painters might paint a water colour in 4 hours. 50cents paper and paints. worth a fortune. Go figure. I heard a story about Picasso who used to sign table cloths in restaurants after entertaining a large group and never got billed. He also said he could buy a house if he painted something.... Sure there is clever marketing in watches, but I don't think the inherent value is actually in the materials...perhaps its something else less tangible.
