If i may ask, what was not running right? If it is the winding/settinf function, the problem usually is the fixing position of the winding stem, which is a part of the case, and, mast be adjusted there...

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,

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.
