In this video I completed the repair of a mint 24 Jewel Bunn Special...not a cheap watch. As well, it had a broken setting wheel, broken upper balance jewel, bent upper pivot, and loose hairspring collet.  Lots of fun. Previous videos address the full cleaning of the watch.

As well, I used a Jacot Tool to straighten a slightly bent balance staff pivot. Worked well.

I've just finished watching your video jd. Excellent work as always. As I said in the comments on Youtube it wasn't boring for me. How about some brass plates for your vice they won't leave marks on your jacot tool.

Ahhh good suggestion and thanks for the nice words Mr. OH. This weekend I need to work on the 15J Elgin. Waiting for the new mainspring and need to replace a jewel.

    • Just in case your part doesn't work the last link has one. Big part of the problem might be for people identify the watch perhaps. It actually goes by several different names. Then as far as I can tell from looking at bestfit online and the Site below there's only one set bridge. I snipped some images out of the physical bestfit book at one time there was what was called the fingerprint system used to setting parts to identify your watch. In this case will use it to see what your parts are supposed to look like. Unfortunately the snipped images won't print out the correct size but at least you can look at the shape and see if it matches.. The second link has a listing of all the parts. The third listing  which watches have your set bridge and its and the last listing in case you want to buy one it looks like they have it in stock. http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&&2uswk&Langendorf_1305 http://cgi.julesborel.com/cgi-bin/matcgi2?ref=LNG_1305 http://cgi.julesborel.com/cgi-bin/matcgi2?ref=X`_DZLU http://www.julesborel.com/s.nl/it.A/id.57704/.f  
    • Hi everyone and hope everyone is OK. bought this watch in a joblot for a tenner (£10.00) so no complaints. The watch works fine but the date changes an hour forward every 24 hours. So if I cycle through the watch and it changes at 12, the next cycle it will be 1am, the next 2am etc. I also removed the hands, cycled the watch to the precise time of date change and then replaced the hands at the 12 O'clock position but the date started to change at the half past position with the same problem as above. The hands sit fine and are snug. Any ideas on what is going on? Many thanks and kind regards. Pedro.

    • Your hook is fine, and I think it will catch and wind with the slightest bend right at the end. Once the second turn wraps around it holds it on the hook, so no need for extreme bending. It probably came unhooked when letting the power down, if it's done too fast sometimes it will unhook and even wrap backwards almost.
