Jaeger-LeCoultre skeleton clock 508

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions for a possible source of a balance staff or complete balance for a Jaeger-LeCoultre skeleton clock 508? It's either listed as obsolete or not listed at all.

Can't see the picture. If it's an "inline" JLC . It would be the 210 

 I will go see if I have a balance staff. Back soon.

Thanks Simon2 and Roger. That looks interesting. The clock looks virtually identical. The only difference I can see is that the endstone and jewel hole are in the brass plate, secured by a shock spring, whereas in the photo the endstone and jewel hole are set in a steel end piece.

This photo seems to show an identical clock with a similar movement:

It may well be that the staff is the same, but I note the description of the staff for sale says 'LE COULTRE 19" 210 C BALANCE STAFF PART #13'. What might the 19" refer to, if it means 19 inches? I thought the symbol for ligne is ''' and I don't see how it would relate to this movement? I will contact the seller for more clarification, but very many thanks for your help so far. Regards. Reinold
