Elgin balance staffs

Question

Hi all, I'm new to pocket watches and repairing them. I'm at the stage where I want to replace a balance staff on a Elgin pocket watch. The watch has no balance staff so can't measure it.  I've ordered 2 from cousins in the UK by using the size number 16s but there wrong. Can someone please tell me how to order the right parts and where I can get them in UK if possible. 

Thank you for any information.

Kind regards David

Put your Elgin serial number in the search engine linked below and it will give you a huge amount of details on your particular movement. Once you have sizes, and model you may be able to track down what you are looking for.
