    Pocket Watch ID Help

    I have a pocket watch that I would like to get a bit of information if possible. The movement is Swiss, and is signed Sterlitz Bros, however there are no other markings except for the "SWISS" stamp on the plate near the balance. The case is open face (screw on) and the back is screw on as well...

    Electric WW Benrus Parts

    I have a Benrus Self-Winding wristwatch given to me by my father. The Crown is missing as is the male stem, and the female stem is severely corroded due to the other two missing. It runs, but not so well without being able to set the time. A portion of the sleeve for the stem on the outside...

The only thing out of order was a jury-rigged fishing weight with a slotted piece of brass soldered to the...

    Schatz & Sohne #59 Regulator Spring

    A recent purchase requires replacement of the regulator spring. I am hopeful someone can point me to a possible source. Saw an assortment at Clockworks, but I don't think they would work as pre-assembled. I considered making one from a 0.007 inch diameter guitar string, however, that is...

    Kundo World Time Clock, Kieninger & Obergfell Western Germany

    I recently purchased one of these clocks and found the glass has a crack and needs replacing. Does anyone know what the secret is to getting the case apart? I have searched the net to no avail. I have examined it closely and simply cannot see where (or how) the outer ring can be separated or...
