Why do you need to change the jewels ? I'll give you this Murks , you certainly have ambition for a beginner.

As always someone will likely know better than me hut anyway I’ll try. I think this is a relatively newish ETA movement so a fair chance it would use standard Seitz jewels, if not you would need to find a jewel with the correct hole size for the pivot and an od slightly larger than the jewel hole in the plate then ream the hole to take the new jewel.

Which jewel? The balance jewels should be convex with olive hole, the other jewels can be flat with cylindrical hole. But you can also use convex where flat jewels go- it's actually nicer. And olive holes are always nicer (there are flat jewels with olive holes too). Seitz (Bergeon) has cut way back on the sizes they provide, and suppliers seem to be running low on old stock.

Hi nick the jewel is actually for the pallet hole jewel a find one on my spare parts but I'm not sure if is going to fit it feels a bit stiff when putting it in to the hole should a open the hole a little and thanks for your advice you mean I can actually use the convex that goes on balance jewel to the cylindecal that goes on the pallet jewel?
