I think he wants an easy solution. I think if I decide to keep it I will haveBalance wheel are serialized numbered parts and down the line, after
we are forgotten, someone will buy this watch and discover it is not an original watch.
Is there a way of replacing bad jewel with a new one , Ive looked for new ones with no luck. And I can't find jewel numbers or sizes for escapement pillar jewels. ThanksYa that's what I want to do keep all plate number s alike . I be pushed the jewels out of alike plate and used them in the plate I'm working on . Usually just recrimping works well ass long as I check end play before crimping the replacement jewels in. Thanks . I keep it original as much as possible
Ya its not gold almost metal looking setting . how do you burnish a jewel i know burnish is done under pressure rite or is there a special tool I've been just carefully taking the setting and jewel out of a donor watch and re crimping the setting in the watch I'm fixing i check to make sure the end play and fitment is good before closing the hole behind the setting has work so far not sure if that's right but the plates state original and you cant tell as long as the hole closing stake fits right . thanks for the info . Is there info on how to fix a setting with a bad jewel in watch properly. Thanks ChrisIf it is a burnished jewel it is F1768, non-burnished is 1768 for the 1892 lower escape jewel, these should be composition settings, not gold. My Waltham repair parts box doesn't have plate jewels for anything large than a 16 size.
Photo for this hunt,,,I need a Crown for a 16 size Emperor watch case, The tube stands proud like some railway watch cases.
I have already made a search through my large collection of various crowns, and nothing comes very close to this size and style.
The tube OD is about 4 MM and the outside of the crown it's self cannot be any larger than 7 MM to clear the bow arms.
The height of the tube is 3 MM. If anyone has any specific info about this part I would appreciate it.
Thanks to all.
I found out it's listed as a Cortebert 445 according to Bestfit. I need the complete escape wheel as it is simply missing. Thanks!I need an escape wheel for a Cortland clock made by Concord Watch Co. I believe the calibre is 445. Please PM if you can help ASAP. Thanks!
