    Rolex quartz

    Is there any value in this watch? Found it in a junk pile of watch movements that someone gave me. It’s a quartz movement. Any thoughts?

    Chime warning lever

    Willie, that is something I considered. I will do some checking on that. That will be my first plan, but if that fails, I try the other plan. Anyone out there got a donor part or know where I can find one?

    Chime warning lever

    Thanks Vernon, sounds like a plan. I have another one of these movements, so I think I will pull it out to help shape this one. Again, thanks for your reply.

    Chime warning lever

    This is the chime lift/warning lever from a New Haven triple plate unit, where the pins lift the lever is really worn, and missing a small chunk. How would you repair this? I appreciate any advice you can give.

    Been putting it off, because it looked pretty complicated. But finally decided to tackle. Wish me lots of luck!

    New Haven chime plate

    This is the first time I have taken a New Haven chime movement apart. I am stumped by the plate that holds most of the time side wheels. There was only one screw on the front plate.

    Worn strike lever

    Thank you for all your advice, ended up soldering a piece in. At least with your experience, it gave me several options to think through. I did, actually try some, but decided on this course. Again, thank you!

    Worn strike lever

    Does anyone have a good fix for this worn lever. I used to have parts clocks, but don’t have anymore of this. I would like to find a way to repair. Would appreciate some advice and experience in what to do. TIA

    New Haven watch mainspring question

    The oval lens on the one I have is 1 3/4” x 1 1/4” and yes, the clock is very small. The inserts are something to think about. I wonder how hard it would be to cut one down?

    New Haven watch mainspring question

    When I put it to the caliper it said .24 mm thickness, I’m not sure how that compares to the Denison? Who would be the best bet for supplying the mainspring? Any thoughts where I could get a glass to replace the plastic one? Thanks for your input.

    New Haven watch mainspring question

    Forgot to mention that I do have a Dennison gauge. Mainspring showed 26 width and 0 thickness.
