    I have this Waltham double dial chronograph. Someone has sharpened the pivots of the escape wheel to the exact length to fit between the plates. It does work. I know these watches were modified when they were converted to chronographs. I find it very hard to believe this isn't someone's way around repivoting. Before I make or modify a new pinion I'd like to be certain. Has anyone seen this before?
