    Hi Guy, I just looked through a couple of boxes of movements and parts and I don't have one. Just an FYI...this is not an "American Watch Company" Hillside. It is an "Am. Watch Co." Hillside. I don't mean to be picky but it is a EUUUUUGE distinction. :) Nice watch!

    12143 is the part number and is particular to the key wind movement, the stem wind wheel is totally different. I have lots of stem wind parts, no key wind ones that I have found yet.

    According to the lookup ( http://nawccinfo.nawcc.org/LookupSN.php ) there are 17431 Model 1874 grade Hillside keywinds out there somewhere. That's not bad odds.

    Plus a further 9900 Hillside keywinds in model 1884 plus a few thousand keywinds in other grades of model 1874 (all of which I'm sure someone could tell me whether to count them or not.)

    Guy, Gave you the wrong part number, they are either 7105 or 7106, both have 36 teeth but I think one is larger than the other.
