    Anderton (??) London Fusee movement

    Hi Graham, Thank you very much for this fascinating insight, which is much appreciated. I have no knowledge of any surviving ledgers or workbooks, unfortunately. At some point, in the future, I will try to have the watch repaired. Kind Regards, David

    Anderton (??) London Fusee movement

    Hi Chris, Thank you. That's good to know. Just as well I don't have a key to wind the watch, as I probably would have tried to without having looked at the inner workings. Eventually I would like to have the watch repaired, polished, and returned to its former working condition. Best Wishes, David

    Anderton (??) London Fusee movement

    Hi Chris, Thank you. I wonder if it could still be repaired at some point in the future. As I mentioned earlier, perhaps it would be even better to replace the movement with a working Anderton one from the correct time period. That's if I could find one of course. Kind Regards, David

    Anderton (??) London Fusee movement

    Anderton (??) London Fusee movement

    Hi gmorse, Many thanks for your message and information. Attached are a couple more photos, but they're not so clear, unfortunately. However, the name is again William Sibbald. Does the movement provide any more insight? Kind Regards, David

    Anderton (??) London Fusee movement

    Many thanks for your kind welcome, and for letting me join the forum. I'm delighted to know that the minute hand can be repaired. It has always been loose, like this. Attached are a couple more photos. Presumably the movement was actually made by William Sibbald. I believe the hallmark dates the...

    Anderton (??) London Fusee movement

    I am also related to William Anderton. I have one of his watches, which has been handed down to me through the family. I believe the Silver Hallmark is London 1835. I haven't yet been able to find other examples online. A snapshot is attached. Of course I would be interested to know more about...
