I've worked on a few.  They go together just like they came apart.  Oiling:  Light oil on all wheels except center wheel.  No oil on pallet pivots, D5 on the center wheel pivots and the barrel arbor.

 

As for assembly, start from a known point (say the escape wheel) and puzzled your way towards completion.  Its not too hard to figure out the wheel placement.

Hi,

its a standard ladies elgin movement, no real service sheet as such, just an interchangable parts list if needed. you can pick them up pretty cheaply off fleabay if you need parts.

Just curious; what is or what is meant by "fleabay"? I Googled it and found https://fleabay.net/ but under the category "Jewelry & Watches" I only found three items; a pair of earrings, a bracelet, and a woman's watch. Perhaps it is a synonym for shopping used stuff online!? Thanks!

Thanks for the "Haha" @jdm and glad I could entertain you, but if you could enlighten me I'd appreciate it even more!

Sorry, I can't. I have sworn to an inner circle of initiated to never revel the secret magic place where one can get any watch part. Pretty much like unobtanium, it can be mentioned, but never achieved :biggrin:.

The expressions "you can pick them up pretty cheaply off fleabay" in my ears sounded like it possibly could be a reference to a specific site like eBay, so that's why I wanted to ask about it. I now understand that it was simply a reference to flea markets on the Internet in general. English isn't my native language so that may have contributed to my confusion. As a bonus, your bumptious contributions to the WRT culture was sort of funny (but not that funny).

"fleabay"

I'm guessing Australian slang for eBay. Then the eBay is the place where you can pick up almost everything sooner or later if you're patient and know how to search for things or you just stumble across it by accident. A lot of times unfortunately the sellers sell things in assortments and won't describe, Or don't describe what they're selling. Sometimes that's outstanding for the buyer but it's a pain in the ass If you're looking for scrap movements and they don't have a description.

    • Chemical recation between markers and dial? Is it a plated dial? Send an email to Zenith and tell them that you are a long term customer but are dissapointed; can you help? etc.
    • The other calendar. A Raketa, technically I'm younger whilst wearing this A tricky one to take a pic of as the dial is quite reflective.
    • the tools used to push the plugs In/out of cylinders.
    • Depending where you are based it may be better to buy from a wholesaler such as Cousin here in the U.K, you say the clock is fitted with a pendulum so you will need a movement with a drive unit built in for the pendulum. As far as repair goes clock repairers would not waste time trying to they would just do a straight swap out of the movement, you need to identify the movement fitted cousins have Hermle and Seiko versions available: https://www.cousinsuk.com/product/strike-chime-with-pendulum-hermle https://www.cousinsuk.com/product/strike-chime-with-pendulum-seiko Also bare in mind that you would need one with the correct shaft size.
    • I pulled this off of the internet:   An India Stone is made from the man-made abrasive aluminum oxide. The term India Stone is a trade name for Norton's Aluminum Oxide sharpening stones. Norton's India stones are orange, tan or brown in color. This distinguishes them from Norton's Crystolon (silicon carbide) Stones which are gray in color.
