    Default Waltham 1892 mainspring

    Ha guys - can anyone tell me what the correct mainspring # would be for a Waltham model 1892, grade special, estimated production year 1896. I have looked on several charts that have it as a cat. # 2222 (width 3.25 to 3.30 mm,thickness range 0.15 to 0.20mm, length range 25mm, with a hole end) but don't know if the 1892's used more than one type of mainspring. Thanks for any help.

    #2222 is the only spring shown in my Waltham material catalog for the 1892 model. It came in a couple of different strengths initially.

    Thanks so much Jerry, the jeweler that is cleaning & repairing my watch said it needs a mainspring but he sure is taking a long time to finish the work. Thanks for the help.
