    • Hello, not able to remove latch to replace battery. Any help would be appreciated.  Attached is a pic of the backside of the battery.    
    • If the mainspring unwinds back through the stem then the click may have failed. On these earlier longines the click spring is concealed under the barrel bridge.    Loose screw - most likely you loosened the bolt screw to far and it has fallen out. Remedy - remove dial to reveal bolt (aka setting lever and hold static while you reinsert the stew again). 
    • I am ordering some things, and thought I'd try again to get this guy back on the road. The Incabloc springs fell out, and I broke one trying to get it back in. I tried micing it, but what I'm getting doesn't line up with any of the springs I see on the Incabloc parts chart. I was hoping to back door it by seeing if I can figure out what setting the movement it's based on is supposed to have, but I can't figure out what the movement is. The only markings are a faint "+ -" on the balance cock, and a star on the rotor (pictured, but difficult to see) that was under a decorative plate. 
    • Agreed. But I don’t think a 4-jaw is something I happen to need for my watchmaking lathe. Vinn says “4 jaw is best” but not for my needs. I’m not drilling main plate holes or anything like that.... I can’t think when I would have benefited from one.    That said, I have used a 4-jaw a few times when making some tools on the larger clockmakers lathe. 
    • I believe the watch is made by the morath bros of Liverpool. The watch itself is unnamed and only has a number printed onto the movement. Not sure how hard it would be to source a new wheel or clutch.  It has a sub second hand. Thanks for all the thoughts, very interesting.    I hope it doesn't cost too much. Was a recent ebay purchase and the repeater mechanism already needed work.
