    Hi to all Jaeger-Lecoultre aficionados:

    I am looking for a balance stop for cal. 478 Jaeger-Lecoultre. What's the best place place to look for it? I've posted in WTB section but never got any responses. I am also looking for a sweep second hand.

    Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    You might hunt around Dashto.com, DavesWatchParts.com, and Scotch Watch Parts, too. The web watch parts sellers have huge stashes.

    As for the hand, you'll likely need to use an aftermarket replacement.
    There is something more to the art of watchmaking and repairing than that of merely assembling a watch and making it 'tick.'

    perhaps you should buy a spare movement, it will be easier in case you will need other parts
