I've been occasionally bidding on pocket watches and, due to limited funds and knowledge, rarely coming up with a winning bid. After many weeks of this I sort of wanted to get something, so I kind of overbid on one (ok, it wasn't that much). And having failed to do any homework, I wound up with a non-working Ingraham Sturdy. After opening it up and being surprised at how poorly it was made, I finally did some research and learned about "dollar watches". It seems they weren't even made to be repaired, and I can see why! No jewels, stamped-out parts, poor construction throughout. Rather than giving up, I take this as a challenge. If the parts are there and could work, I'm going to give it a try. One problem is how to get the balance back on, it is attached to the one-piece top plate and you have to simultaneously install the balance over the pin-pallet lever and get all the pivots into the top plate. Not clear how to do this. Anyone have any experience with this? Or should I just file this away as an object lesson in misplaced enthusiasm?
