Round click spring?

Question

Another lesson learned, I broke the click of a Seagull mov.t  (no parts available) while letting down power. Bad design, isn't flexible enough to stay away from the ratchet wheel while do so. Better let it unwind by itself if possible, or be extra super cautious. Anyone can suggest a spring that I can adapt? The hole is 3.5mm.

Have a Seagull watch i can't repair. I can have a look if it has the same movement. And if the part is okay in it. 

Is this the same? Doesn't look like it? This has a normal clickspring. DSC00608.thumb.JPG.735fa8b6b1b53e4cc5ff0f20c83858a0.JPG

I think CousinUK offers an assortment of click springs for short money.

Even "round" ones? Someone told me that he has never seen one like that, and he has seen very many.

You're always super helpful Rogart!
Then I placed it above a 7S26 calendar plate.

It's just 0.03mm thinner. I know how I will spend a couple hours tomorrow :blink:

As soon as I saw this part I thought "isn't that a regulator?!". A quick search and you'll see what I mean: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Arrow-Register-Regulator-Ref-300-Sh-Al-11-1-5-Russo-Automatic/223510751654 !

I suspect you're already looking forward to a couple of hours of filing on the calendar plate, and I realise a regulator may be too thin, but maybe worth a second look in your spares box in case this idea offers another avenue! <_<

No, mine it's an open-heart, big date, full calendar. I was thinking it's a Sea-gull 2L55 that has same size and layout, but the calendar works is different. Quite poor quality, likely due to a shock one shock spring went roaming bith small hands same, and rotor has separated at "riveting", yet the owner wants it repaired at any cost.

    • 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.
