Mount Royal pocket watch spares.

Recommended Posts


I have a skeletonised Mount Royal pocket watch requiring repair, and wanted to know if there were any good resources for spare parts, besides Ebay.

The movement itself has no identifying markings, or caliber number. I have included a picture of an identical unit below.

Is there any way to trace the manufacturer of the movement, or is this a dead end?



Any help would be greatly appreciated!


Many thanks,

Yes, dear @Wintermute, I would say that your pocket watch is powered by a Chinese movement. These movements were and still are made by a number of Chinese companies and I don't think you will easily find the exact manufacturer. Although these hand-wind movements are on the "cheap and cheerful" side, there is nothing intrinsically wrong with them, and they can give a reasonably good account of themselves as long as you don't ask too much of them. In terms of "spares and repairs", it might be cheaper to replace the whole movement than to undertake any disassembly or major repair.:)

Thanks for the response, @Always"watching". I ended up buying a 'stopped' from ebay (turns out the screw on the crown wheel was loose, and thus could not wind). I replaced the pallet fork with the one form the donor, and all is well again. It's a reasonable practice movement to get to grips with, possessing only a center seconds complication and, being considerably larger than a wristwatch movement.

I expect I'll be here far more frequently now I have found this forum, and its wonderfully warm natives.


Many thanks!
