Watch Makes Scrapping Sound Crown Up

Recommended Posts

I just finished repairing an old 7J Waltham for a friend. Got it going well face up, face down, crown down: but scraping sound and slows down and sometimes stops crown up. Is this the impulse jewel closed to the opening back of the palate fork or could it be the hair spring. This is a very cheap watch so I don’t want to spend to much more time. Already replaced the mainspring and cleaned it up significantly. And I made a bow out of a coat hanger wire and a lot of pounding.67234001858654b499674c8b1808ad55.jpga54ecfef068a30020dbca5707249527c.jpg71d3d62d4931fd54018ff89c74712060.jpg3390c897d7ca9e21336ddfcdbbfda278.jpg

I too, suspect the roller and guard pin rubing, since excess side shake reduces the distance between the two in dial up position.
