    Hello, sorry if this is a stupid question but as a person new to watch repair, the keyless work is the last part of the watch that is somewhat of a mystery to me. I was taking apart a 7j 16s Waltham to practice cleaning, and unfortunately when I removed a screw this V-shaped spring popped out and I wasn't able to keep track of how it is supposed to be positioned. So, my question is simple: how should this spring be positioned relative to the two levers?

    As I post this I'm researching the basics of keyless work to understand it better, but it would be nice if I could understand the mechanism in the context of the watch I'm working on now.
