While cleaning a new aquisition, an Elgin model 84 16S doctor’s watch, the roller table slipped off the staff and the impulse jewel slipped out of the table. I noticed remnants of adhesive (?) flaking off of the shoulder on the staff, I suspect from an earlier attempted repair. I’m ready to shellac the jewel in and “grit-set” the table, but I need to know what the correct angular position of the table/jewel is relative to the balance wheel. The drawing in the serial lookup on NAWCC suggests that it is NOT 90 degrees to the axis of the balance crossbars, as in many designs, but maybe 5 degrees or so clockwise (as seen below). Any suggestions, please?
