      Hello everyone 
      I recently bought a lot of pocket watches on Ebay. 
      Between them I found an Alpina pocket watch with movement UH 1116. I saw on internet that usually is referred as Alpina 1116.
      I got the following situation, while removing the wheels bridges, one of the ruby remained on the wheel. 
      Please take a look on the following pictures. 
      I also took some pictures with a microscope in order to explain better the situation. 
      Could you please suggest me what I should do? 
      Is what I got complete? Looking to another ruby it seems there is something missing (holding piece?) 
      Is the movement common? Do You believe I can find the bridge somewhere? 
      BTW I have also found a broken spring
      Many thanks in advance for your suggestions

      I have a lovely antique cylinder escapement pocket watch that I've serviced and got running beautifully but now I have a problem with the minute hand falling off. I think it's known as a pin hole fitting hand. On measuring the hand it shows approx. 0.40mm, and then on measuring the arbor diameter with the vernier guage, it's also 0.40mm so it's very near but won't even grip when mounted. Photos provided of the job.
      Does anybody have a technique I can use to get the hand to fit?

      Hi everyone, was super delighted to see how responsive this community is... I am resolving the 1st issue with my Slava watch and now I am confident I can get some help with my Molnya 3602
      -I took it apart and noticed the balance spring is a little uneven and does not go back and forth... I took the bridge off (one screw) took out the balance wheel and spring attached but did not see anything wrong, out it back and the same issue pessimists.
      I need help understanding if the balance wheel is properly installed and / or needs replacement to get the mechanism to function.
      checked all other parts and main spring is good. Would help if I can also find the front crystal/glass and an authentic face.

    • I’m servicing my first SEIKO watch housing a calibre 7S36B. Got it on eBay for about £70 and it seems to be in reasonably good condition. The crystal is somewhat scratched. I don’t know if it is mineral or sapphire glass. If mineral (which I assume) I suppose I could diamond paste the scratches, but for several reasons I would like to replace the crystal, the most important reason being I’d like to learn how to. I’ve already removed the old crystal and it’s intact so I could measure it. However, CousinsUK.com has a ”Seiko Glasses List (Under Construction)” with hundreds and hundreds of mostly original SEIKO crystals. Each crystal is listed with SEIKO’s part number, for example “Glass, Seiko 095N02GN00”. The question is, how do I obtain the part number of my SEIKO crystal? The numbers I’ve found on my SEIKO are: 7S36-05C0 – printed on the see-through case back, 0D0349 – engraved on the rim of the case back, and 7S36B – engraved on the oscillating weight.
