    Mechanical WW Recta Watch Case and Dial

    Thanks! I will probably try to relume the hands myself, but I'm a little skittish about trying the numerals. I will have to think about it. I appreciate the assistance!

    Mechanical WW Recta Watch Case and Dial

    I bought a terminally messed up Recta Watch on line to practice on. I now have the watch running just fine, but have two other problems. First of all, the case back and rim are stainless and in great shape...but the case itself is pitted, poorly repaired, and one of the arms is cracked (see...

    WWII Military Watch Case Plating

    Karl, Much thanks for your reply. I'm not sure whether by "filling in" you mean selectively replacing plating or filling in pits in the metal. I know that filling in pits is done by the antique car restoration folks all the time. I had a tail light that looked like BBs had blasted it. I...

    WWII Military Watch Case Plating

    I have been in the clock forum for a while, but am trying something new...watches. I recently purchased a WWII Waltham Ord Dept watch marked ORD DEPT USA OF-474268, serial number 31,985, 713. I have a few rather amateurish questions, so bear with me! 1. The case is fairly worn with brass...

    American PW Balance Wheel Screw Broken

    This has to do with a Seth Thomas Deck Clock, but the balance wheel is more like a watch...and in this case a 16s Elgin. The problem is that after having the clock restaffed, it ran great for a few months, then erratically, then stopped. When I opened it back up to see what was wrong, it was...

    American PW Seth Thomas Mark I Deck Clock With Elgin Escape

    Jake, Thanks again! I'm new at this...as I'm sure you can tell...would LaRose be a place to get the jewels and the staff? I'm guessing you say 3 staffs because of the chance of messing up a couple of times until it is right? Bill

    American PW Seth Thomas Mark I Deck Clock With Elgin Escape

    Jake, Thanks...this is a big help! There is one problem however...when the balance staff was damaged, it appears that one of the pinions was partially broken off. Therefore, measuring it, as it is, will give me a dimension too short. Should I try to approximate between the jewels or is there...

    American PW Seth Thomas Mark I Deck Clock With Elgin Escape

    I wasn't sure whether to post this in watch or clock repair...but here goes. I have a Navy Deck Clock with the Elgin escape. The clock was probably dropped at some point by a past owner, and the balance staff pinions are broken. To add insult to injury, at least one of the jewels (upper) is bad...
