We need the I D of the movement. If you don't know it, take photos of the complete movement back plate, remove hands  and dial, a good clear photo of the keyless work will help us. 

Hi oldhippy

I can't see any ID on the movement! Here are some more photo.

Many thanks

This is a Rego/lapanouse 144 based movement. I currently have 3 of these setup as Chronostop watches.

Unfortunately, spare parts are scare as chickens teeth! Good luck

You stand a good chance of finding complete balance for it, as well as hairspring.

 

Hi Nucejoe

If I am going to find a complete balance, how do I determine the size? 

I see some listing stated for example( 10 1/2" 125 rego)

What does these number indicate?

Many thanks

FLwatchguy has already identified the movement. 

Please find answers to your questions in ranfft.com and how he identifies movements by the shape of their keyless. Further, see the family of this caliber and more.

Let me dig in my bag of tricks, I just may have several NOS complete balance for the caliber. These often pop up on ebay too and are cheap.

Thank you FLwatchguy! You are very kind! Please let me know if you have any! I will keep an eye on eBay see if one pop up! 

Many thanks for your help!

    • I've just moved house, and of the hundreds of items in the workshop it seems the power supply for my Cousins' LED desk lamp has gone missing. This one, discussed here before.  Could anyone with the same lamp tell me what the power supply looks like? Colour, type (wall-wart or in-line?), and specs, in case I have to replace it. Before realizing that I was using a 12V supply that was actually for my watch timer, I was already debugging the thing with my oscilloscope. I wasn't able to find anything wrong using a benchtop PSU at 18V, *except* for the main diode (that feeds the MCU via a 7805) being the wrong way around. My electronics education from 25 years ago is failing me in explaining how this could ever have worked in the first place, lol.
    • As said above, these can be a really tight fit, in some cases they are friction fitted right where they seat, on others they are tight all the way along the shaft. I use levers like in the photo (these are Bergeon, about 10" long) to unseat it, then if it's still tight I use the little puller to coax it off the rest of the way.   Getting it off is one thing, reseating it is another. You will need a hollow punch with a deep enough hole to pass the length of the arbor. In my case I made it, probably you can get by with a piece of brass tubing. The other issue is hand alignment after; on most clocks the hub on the minute hand can be rotated to align it with the strike, but on some there is just a square in the hand itself with no adjustment. Here you need to pay attention to the position of the cam in relation to the square so you aren't striking at 12 minutes past or something. All that said, if it's yours and you are confident it is clean and not worn, just leave it. For a customer I will remove it no matter what.   In my experience wear is more likely at the pivot that carries gathering pallet, the other cam OH mentioned first. These are usually much easier to remove.    
    • As Old Hippy said if its not worn and working ok leave it on,  they are usually a tight fit and you may damage it during removal.
    • Hi   I have attached the Bolt's from my two staking sets and the fitting hope this is some help to you in finding somthing to suit.   If you can find a bolt of the same thread and a bit over long the end can be turned or filed to fit the hole in the table so that when the bolt is screwed home it locks the table and when un screwed allows it to rotate.
