Coincidently, an earlier post referred to an Elgin with a S Haller movement as a "German Time bomb". Well, that describes my opinion at this moment! As I disassembed this clock and finally was able to see the size of this NON-BARRELED spring, I stopped. I have no idea what's holding the spring from exploding and do not want to proceed until I have a better idea how this movement is assembled and what's holding the spring. I attempted to remove the brass sheet enclosure, but everything seems "stuck" at one corner. My fear is that this one corner is attached to the bomb fuse If you have ever worked on one of these "Elgin" Anniversary clocks with a S Haller movement, I need your help.
