    Can anyone tell me if this case has the original stem and sleeve. Looks like maybe someone installed a screw-in repair sleeve. The case is Star watch Co. #15 There is a lot of end shake and side shake on the crown. Thanks MG

    Timegrapher 1000/1900 on balance wheel clock movements.

    Just finished restoring a ST Merrimac ships bell clock (#7 movement). Problem is that escapement is so noisy that usual timer app on My Iphone (Timegrapher) has a hard time . Will a timegrapher 1000 or 1900 work well on such movements? Thanks.
