    Does anyone have a verge from an EN Welch miniature ogee, 30 hr spring driven movement, patented August 1870? I need one for a restoration project. The teeth on the escape wheel are very coarse and quite box-like. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    You will likely never find the exact, correct verge. You will have to buy one, and bend/file it to fit.

    Here's a direct link to the timesavers verges that you will need to consider.

    You have to count the number of teeth and then pick correct DIRECTION that verge palettes face.

    Look for left/right and remember you can flip sideways, left/right - right/left. Just whatever helps to get verge correctly matched with old verge.
