Is there a source of parts for new old stock mainspring barrels for old pocket bens? Mine is a 1922 model. I also wouldnt mind a new paper dial and a clearer crystal but the mainspring barrel cogs are so rough you can't wind it. Otherwise it runs fine. Thanks for now, Joe.

Hi Joe, Westclox was around in 1922? Odds are good I can help with the barrel but can you post a pic of what you have?-Cort
p.s. -actually, I doubt I have the barrel in N.O.S

Here's two pictures of the watch. mar 15 018.jpg mar 15 017.jpg I hope this helps to identify the part needed. This Pocket Ben is different from the others I have with its winding stem as part of the case, with its gear meshing with the small, slotted axle gear at a right angle. Also in the future I'll post parts requests in the right place now that I know where they belong. Thanks, Joe.

Eric,
Send me a Private Conservation with what you need. I have several boxes of old Dollar watches.

The crystal will have to be purchased from people who sell them .

Thanks
