    I just bought a 8 day Ansonia clock with a 2 inch dial marked 8 day. It is in a small gold colored case. Where there is wear the metal looks copper or may be bronze? the movement is about 2 inches in dameter also.
    Any way the problem is the hair spring is broke right at the regulator. It must have had some rust at that point. Where would I get one made or is the 30 hour hair spring the same size as the 8 day one. I do not have a 30 hour Ansonia to compair to.
    The movemnet is about the size of a 30 hour New Haven that I have except for the massive main spring mounted on the back end of the movement. any informaiton?

    Hello
    I have heard that you can solder them.
    That is all I know about them, I have one that has been deformed and the adjusting arm missing, so I will watch and learn as well.
    Thanks

    Thanks for the idea it sure will not hurt to try. The break is in a non coiled area so may just be the thing to make it run again.
    Any other ideas for the group?
