Hi There, first timer here.
I have a Zenith 2522C movement that I'm using to learn some watch repair skills. I'm having a real problem trying to reattach the top balance jewel to the bridge. There's a U shaped clip retainer that holds the jewel assembly in the hole.
I can't seem to slide that clip into the grooves in the jewel. Aside from needing 3 hands, is there something I'm missing? The clip doesn't find the groove and pings off.
So assuming I can find it, what's the technique? But assuming I can't find it, can I get a replacement clip for pennies or better to pay pounds for a new balance assembly? Would it even come with the clip?
Thanks for reading!
