Giving a Waltham pocket watch to each of two individuals as a gift and seeking a source of boxes that might look decent. Don't need to be genuine Waltham boxes, of course, but something a pocket watch would look nice in.
Thanks in advance.
It would help to know if it was cable or chain and if you ran it with dial on or off at the shop. Assuming cable coils not overlapped or no dial interference, check to make certain that the leader is not touch the front or rear of the crutch slot or pin, also the lightest weight goes on the...
I do have the movement if you do not find the pars. Although the new movement will definitely interchange with yours, there were some design improvements in the escapement, and it is possible that you parts are obsolete. Please e-mail me if interested or check our site at www.butterworthclocks.com
Jeremy Stepp at www.rareparts.com will have it. You need to give him the info from the rear plate of the unit. We have a retrofit for the entire unit using a Hermle. Contact me privately if interested.

First, if you have a triple chime unit, you should have 4 settings. It might be possible that the dial slot is not cut long enough to get the 4th one. You can determine that by removing the dial and then checking for the 4 settings.
To proplerly set the sequence, it is true that on the...
Jauch is long out of business, but LaRose did buy up what they had and you might try them. Also, Timesavers carries a full line of cable. You will need to use a micrometer to get the diameter first to match it up.

There are three basic sources for these units-Asia, India, and Germany. If you are interested, we carry the ones made in Germany. Please feel free to contact us at the address below.
