Vintage Pocket Watch Repair. Balance Staff, Hairspring, New Jewel

Ref: B. Thomson – est. rep.

This watch has three major faults along with the need for general service.

The fourth wheel jewel is damaged and needs to be replaced.

The balance staff lower pivot is bent – it cannot be bent back without breaking so a new staff will need to be made.

The hairspring is damaged and requires quite a lot of time spent on it.
