The online Bulletins and Mart and Highlights are currently unavailable due to a failure of a network piece of equipment. We are working to replace it and have the Online publications available as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
Anything beyond a simple repair is too much for me. I was hoping it would work things out over time but it appears that is a false hope. This is best left to someone who knows what they are doing.

Shutterbug, how do I know which spring, #10, 9, 8, 7, 6, etc?
Mine is broken so I can't determine the original size ...
10 = 17.0mm x 8.0mm (length x width) 12.5mm / 0.05mm
09 = 15.0mm x 8.0mm (length x width) 10.5mm / 0.05mm
08 = 18.0mm x 8.0mm (length x width) 13.5mm / 0.04mm
07 = 20.0mm x...
I have a Seth Thomas Lynton 2W E531-000 that, to the best of my knowledge, needs a pendulum spring.
The stamp inside reads: A205-000 5810.
In one of the close-up photos there is a plate mounted at the top of the movement w/two screws. It has a pin holding two pieces of metal. In a similar Seth...
