Another watch from the box...I noticed a fairly good price on these with loads of watchers on ebay when I looked for parts.
This Mondia Graduate seems to have a perfectly working wheel train but when you wind it up, it spins off as fast as you let go with the click swinging out of the way
I watched a disassembly video for the AS 1900 and 1950 and noticed there should be a little hairspring under the click.
I removed the ratchet wheel and... no click spring.
I found one offered on ebay for $10 but it is from an old watch? would this be ok or should it be NOS rather?
I've never heard of the brand but the movement seems good as far as 17 Jewels go and the bridges are finished very artistically with a nice texture, has the typical annoying date setting mechanism where the date changes as you wind the hour hand from 21:00 to 24:00, but otherwise it seems really nice.
If you have anything more to share or comment, have a ball.
