  1. Sorry Neven never looked One day will grow a Brain Cell Must be the other Movement is missing that part. Hopefully re-assemble today.
  2. Odd i found a movement the same, similar and it seems that does not have a spring like one shown above. So where/why how it got there i have no idea !!! so hopefully all should be ok, which would make sense as nowhere it could have fitted. I will put it down to a previous repair (not me) as bought like it is, and was dropped in there which might explain why was not running all the time. So fingers crossed, once headache shifted carry on with re-assemble.
  3. It was running irregular kept stopping so stripped it down to give a good clean. The problem is not sure where the little round spring locates?. Taken a few Thomas Russell movements apart, but this one has a different winding mechanism. one i have not seen before on any pocket watch! Annoying problem as rest is easy,
  4. Got a Thomas Russell i stripped down as not running right. Problem i have i took the part out and the 3 parts were stuck and fell out of place !!! What i need is someone who can guide me where the spring goes? (Spring placed near parts i think i have in right. Its a lovely Full Hunter Gold Plated in great condition just i as usual got stuck as not sure on where it goes. https://www.dropbox.com/s/shqqyl9d980m0rk/DSCN0534.JPG?dl=0

    Swisstime woes!

    Sounds like a bunch of idiots. Get on at them as they had not serviced it right first time round, you should not have to pay. £370 sounds rather a lot to me, especially if they are not up to the Job
  6. They sell them here if no good
  7. Possibly the button is sticking, not sure of best way to lubricate it to see, but use very little. Maybe watch oil. Obviously do not get on the circuit board.
  8. I used to have a collection of Vinyl Records mainly Elvis about 56 i think. Say used to, as one day when i was out, my Parrot got out, and chewed the lot !!!! Yes it is still alive today, but very close to Paxo and a Roast
  9. Opening the Watch is simple back just shuts. You can see where to open it by a slight protruding bit. As said the movement, hallmark would be of great help
  10. It is nice looking. Love the gold colour.
  11. The watch was bought around the 1870's, by his Grandfather.
  12. Thanks Simon. Will note number down.
