    How can I identify the calibre and maker of an Admiral pocketwatch so I can look for repair parts ?

    I have it open but all it says inside is Tacy watch company, Admiral, non magnetic, 2 adjustments, 7 jewels, Swiss, USA patent May 24 1904. Does anyone have any advice as to how I can identify the maker and the calibre? Perhaps Tacy is the maker?

    With thanks

    Dennis

    Hi Dennis,

    Tacy is a trademark of Tavennes-Cyma mainly used for the U-S. market.

    Thanks Roland. I am new to pocket watches. I bought two of these pocket watches that both have the worn balance wheel shafts. I am mechanical enough to take the watch apart and reassemble and I hope to find replacement parts.

    There is no information on the calibre. Are you by chance aware how I can sort out what calibre it is?

    Thanks

    Dennis

    Post movement pics. Dr. Ranfft's site specifies the balance staff needed once the calibre is identified.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
