RL,I need am Elgin ladies 617 movement with a good balance or a complete balance for that movement.
This is for a family member and quite important. I would be more than glad to pay you for the part.
There is a lot of older small ladies watches and movements out there and hoping someone can help. Thanks
Here is where you can pick them up, that horrible place that everyone talks about _Bay, just search for Hampden 1721 Staff. Would have put a link but BIN still in progress.I need a hampden 18 size small collet balance staff. Seems the jobbing house only has the large collet staffs.
Thanks for the reply Jim, the one you have shown from the Swigart book marked 1830 is the correct one and picture is correct. Like you I have a lot of the others you have shown, these are for two different Hunting models, the ones with the hole lower down on the leg are Elgin part#114 and the ones without are Elgin part#48. The Part#1830 is pretty much used only on the Model 7, Class 65 & 66 from memory.Bila,
I have plenty of the set levers if you can clear up some confusion. In Swigart's the illustration looks funny compared with an actual lever.
The #823 is for the early 10-size movements. Not an easy spring to find.
