How is this type of jewel held in place/removed?


Recommended Posts

The tip if a balance pivot is stuck in the jewel hole of this New York Standard pocket watch balance jewel.

I think I need to remove the cap jewel to dislodge the pivot end, but I'm not sure how to go about it.

Any advise on this?

Thanks,

Bill

Does the outer case of the brass bush unscrew

I don't know, I was asking before trying anything.

I figured it out.

I was able to press out the jewel and cap stone, thus freeing the pivot end. 

After cleaning / scraping off some mushed over material on the jewel setting, I got everything pressed back in nicely.
