ok, here's the starter.
the rest are in the link below if this whets your appetite..
pocket watch movement | Facebook
i got this movement as a project i might not ever finish.
when i got it, i noticed the balance wheel was not right so i removed the balance wheel bridge to loosen the staff and then the thing started wirring and slowly hissing. it was both the most frightening noise and coolest thing ever unexpected from a century plus year old movement at 1am. it looks like someone before me had attempted to remove then replaced the balance on the top of the gear it should go under. this bound the geartrain enough that it held it's power until i let it release with the removal of the balance.
the hair spring had been apparently broken but all there.
the weird thing is it looks like almost all the jewels had been removed as well as most of the balance screws?!.
i have not tried to wind or set the watch in any way.
i thought the community might get a kick out of an old movement that was probably the unwilling participant to a scrapper. why can't we just keep watches watches?
on the cuvette, the 'SWISS' is so hard to read with or without loops, my friend and i were killing ourselves trying to make out the letters until it hit him, now all i can see is 'swiss'.
i have more pics on the computer if anyone wants to see them.
