Paul, here are the specs for the suspension springs:

For the "small" single contact model (Style 1100, glass dome on brass base), use a Horolovar 0.0040" spring cut to 5-3/4 inches long.

For the "large" single contact model (may be in glass dome or 4-glass crystal regulator case), use a Horolovar 0.0045" spring cut to 7 inches long.

For Horolovar springs in England, contact Patrick Wadge in Salisbury as follows:

Patrick James Wadge

Salisbury, Wilts SP2 7ST

For the Double Contact Models, there is no Horolovar or other temperature compensating suspension spring available. However, the originals were made of spring steel, and a ladie's pocket watch mainspring has been identified which works quite well. It is a Hamilton 6/0 #2521, 1.40 mm x 0.12 mm, cut to 11-1/4 inches long. These (or the equivalent) are available from most watch parts dealers who handle mainsprings.

Hope this will be of help!!
