    I bought a job-lot of non working watches . In two plastic containers found a disassembled ROAMER ALARM watch. MST Caliber 417. They made the 417 and 427 and some parts are interchangeable.
    No scrap movements that I could find online.
    Most of it appears to be there. I am assembling before cleaning to see what missing.
    After sitting on Google for hours I have two questions.

    1. The Alarm pointer fits on to a very large hour hand shaft .
    The hour wheel looks like the only missing part that I can see, with my limited experience .
    I cant find any picture of it on any page online.
    Does anyone have a picture of the hour wheel or of the watch or even better a picture or Diagram
    with the unlocking wheel holder removed, so I can see what going on? It must be unusual to take the
    hour hand and the alarm pointer.

    2. The pallet fork has a broken pivot, re-pivot is not an option for me here in South Africa.
    I understand that the pallet staff can be replaced. Is there a source for staffs or better still a complete
    Pallet Fork?

    MST 417, you will find parts for the watch itself. The Alarm parts are going to be quite rare.
    Measure the pallet staff and you may find one of these more easily than a set of pallets.
