    Re: WUSF6 Watchmakers of the World Watch Tour

    Good news! Jesus loves you and ToWa (the Tour Watch) has arrived in the "last best place", Stevensville, Montana! Early this morning, via First Class Mail, Scott, my mailman, delivered a well padded box with our good friend no worse for wear. In fact it looks pretty good. I showed it around the shop to a few of my little friends. Couldn't introduce it to all as there is that pesky Rule #8.

    Rule # 8

    I had planned for ToWa and I to go skiing but I busted a couple of ribs last weekend trying to do a double helix with two tourbys off the furniture at the terrain park. Like a pretzel they broke. I now know what it feels like to get stabbed. We will have to find a more sedate activity, maybe sky diving or ski joring.

    More later, I'm hungry.

    Ha-haah - the Watch is on the move! And going to a very different type of watchmaking related place. I can't imagine a scenario where any forum member won't find this stop interesting (for different reasons of course). There's a tracking number on the shipment so I'll post an update when there's more news.

    I just consulted the Bergeon Crystal Ball (part # 947598) and the Watch arrived at its destination city this morning at 12:37 am and is out on a local USPS truck for delivery today. More details as available.

    The Watch Tour has been a really interesting project to follow and to participate in. It has made the big world of Horology a little smaller and closer :)

    And, Pithy.... I think that Bergeon part number might be 8675309... :)

    Re: WUSF6 Watchmakers of the World Watch Tour

    OK - so I posted a link to the screenshot of the timing trace over on the blue side of the Tour and here's what they came up with. (Hard to imagine how pros came up with this many divergent analysis/diagnosis. I wonder if they re just having a little fun with each other at the expense of the rest of us.)

    ------------

    rt Watch is deffinately out of beat. Could be one or more of the following: Loose hairspring collet, Loose or crooked roller jewel. Misaligned roller table, misaligned safety roller, loose or bent banking pin, hairspring out of true, loose pallet stone, damaged pallet jewel. I would suggest disassembling the watch and placing the balance assembly and cock in place and thourghly inspecting all aspects of the assembly and then inspect the pallet fork and escape wheel to determine the exact problem.

    dr Balance complete

    aa Hairsprings touching & curb pins should make it better

    wt rt, the watch had a decent trace two stops ago. Hard to believe that the USPS could be this hard on it.

    aa Ooo during delivery it's took a knock, it should of withstood a few tumbles, cheapo eta haha

    rl While it's on the timing machine are you hitting it with a hammer? Or maybe sticking your finger (with a cot) into the balance and spring?

    wt rl, ask M!

    rt How many boot prints did our wonderful USPS workers leave on it?

    rt Have you checked for magnetisim?

    rd Bad tooth on escape wheel and or bent escape wheel

    jl Inspect the balance pivots for damage.

    rlII Way out of beat..could be sticky hairspring and or out of round,,:)

    js Bent pallet fork (or bent horn on one side of pallet fork, though less likely).

    aw beat perfect but oiling not complet

    Pics. Proof of life (or didn't really happen).

    --------------------------

    Update: If this really did occur - it's the shortest Tour hop on record (@4.5 miles). If anyone in the area is going shopping today - see if you can spot the Watch in the wild.
