    Gerbrüder Resch clock running fast

    Thanks Dick & Tim, I’ve quickly read the article, I’ll read it again then try out a few suggestions. When the clock arrived I noticed that the peg on the crutch had been wound fully to one side, I will also try it with the repair to the slot removed as I don’t see how it could be helping and may...

    Gerbrüder Resch clock running fast

    Hi Uhralt, The suspension spring is 50mm long, I've looked on Cousin's website and 50mm is the longest they do. The pendulum is about as long as the case can stand with only 20 mm clearance.

    Gerbrüder Resch clock running fast

    Hi Willie, Only ever seen the clock not working, the catgut was brittle and snapped and it was swimming in oil, as for the pendulum, it may or may not be original.

    Helvetia 837 service sheets

    Hi Chris, Thanks very much for looking, I checked with the Cousins site as they seem to have a lot of spec sheets but there was nothing there either. Hopefully if I get stuck someone out there will have worked on one and be able to help, meanwhile I'll push on with the service. Regards Graham

    Tissot Sport Chronograph

    Hi Guys, Thank you all for your input, managed to remove the stem through the small square hole (used a brass pin as only thins I had small enough), unfortunately as agemo says the movement does not look to be serviceable there are no screws on either side. I looked up the G10 on Cousins docs...
