Hi there everyone,I hope your having a good weekend,I'm hoping someone can help,I'm trying to find out the calibre of this movement,so I can purchase a balance staff for it,as measuring the old one is way beyond my tools capability.

Welcome to the board.

We need more information to identify the movement. Try taking pictures of the front, back and under the dial (without the ruler).

Try one of the mainplate showing if there are any numbers stamped under the balance.

If I may take a guess you have a 27 lingues caliber 98 watch.

You often find the caliber stamped under the balance on Omega movements. Too bad it was not the case here.

I don't know where one would find a balance for this watch. Possibly it can be re-pivoted. There is ofcourse also the possibility to cut a new balance.

Be careful with the old broken balance. The measurements can come in handy. Instead of cutting a new staff from scratch one can look for a replacement with one or a couple of dimmensions to adjust.

Good luck.
