Hamilton 770 Hairspring


Question

Hey,

I'm on the lookout for a Hairpsring for a Hamilton cal 770. I've managed to find out that it's a Breguet made from Elinvar but that's about it. 

Does anybody know the parts number? If you also know where to get hold of one it would be very appreciated.

Thanks!

Cousins has it as obsolete, but there is a complete balance with hairspring for a Hamilton 770 on ebay US now as well as a complete movement which is listed as having a good balance

Thanks Tmuir. I had completely missed the balance on sale. I will ask my watchmaker if it will do.

I think I want to stay away from used movements as long as possible.

I have two #770 movements with good complete working balance's if you pay the shipping you can have one free.

      I have purchased a GUB09207211 hairspring from Cousins watch parts and I am not sure how to attached it to the anchor on the balance cock. Is there a tool I should use or is there a method that I can employ. Any help is appreciated Thanks.

      I have a watch that I am fixing up for myself. After lots of research l, I concluded my watch is a 1960s Hamilton Stormking VII. As my watch needs a new crystal I ordered one from ebay that is for a Hamilton stormking VII. When I got it in I immediately realized that it doesn't fit. The replacement seems to me about 1mm larger than the original. (I dont have a caliper). Is this even a Hamilton Stormking VII? Or did I get the right crystal but I have to modify it before it fits?

      Hi everyone, I have some problems with a manual winding watch. It needs some work but I would try to do it myself. The watch appears fully wound but it doesn't work. Which is the problem? Thank you in advance

      I work a lot on small caliber (ladies watch size) movements but still have mishaps with the balance hairspring.  These hairsprings are very fragile and easily bent and removing/replacing the balance assembly seems to be my problem.  I would like any comments on the risks of deforming the hairspring by allowing the wheel to dangle during handling.  I would also like to know if the position of the regulator arm/pins has any effect re risk of deforming the spring, should it be close to the stud or as far a possible from the stud, I normally leave it where I find it so the timing is close to what it was before dis-assembly.  Any advice on techniques etc will be much appreciated.

      I am correcting a deformed hairspring and need to set the curve for the regulator pins.  De Carle mentions using curve-forming tweezers, which I cannot yet find.  What are the alternate practices for forming this curved portion of the over curve?
      Thanks,

    • oldhippy, for that counter weight movement as per your instructions i made the pendulum + 12" minute hand (0.8mm brass) which is keeping perfect time for last 4 days. Now, i am arranging for steel sheet (1mm) and will try 18-20-24 inches hands! 
    • oldhippy, ok- noted.  since this one is single fusee with different design- it will be good for my collection. thanks for your valuable info.  
    • Unless you fancy a challenge it's worth looking at the websites of the usual parts suppliers first. The Resources page you'll find a link to at the head of this forum is a good place to start. I can see for instance Cousins has both male and female stem parts listed. I'm sure other suppliers closer to your neck of the woods might be able to oblige too. Also a good tip to a newbie is not to focus exclusively on the movement model you're specifically dealing but be aware of models in the same family. In your case http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&&2uswk&ETA_2375 will list other members of the family. Often you'll find that parts are listed against the first member of the family ... so that's the ETA 2370 in your case. A quick ebay search on 'eta 2370 stem' brings up for instance https://www.ebay.com/itm/ETA-2370-watch-movement-part-404-female-split-stem/132105059577 With these breadcrumbs I'll let you take over...! 🙂
