G'day all, got another one that's hard to find much on. I've been looking on & off for over a week since it arrived with the Thiel alarm I brought to rescue. It got my interest because it was jeweled front & back( 15j ).
The tip of the balance shaft is broken off inside the bridges jewel. I wasn't sure until I finally took it off today to see what was wrong, out of desperation & thinking I'll just part it out :(
But there it was hidden by the the balance wheel & bridge, IMHOF :)
The balance shaft is one of the easy straight ones to make that just press in I think(no expert), balance & spring are OK.
How rare are these or am I just not looking in the right places ;)
It has a seconds pin/shaft that's intact. But there is a driver gear missing on the front for one of the main hands, is it worth trying to save this do you think ?
I've found connection & referrence to....Arthur Manufacture de pendulettes et reveils (to USA) La-Chaux-de-Fonds. In the forum lists. As well as a lot of alarm clocks on the web, but no pocket watchs so far. This is approx. 43mm dia. dial/face & 42mm dia. back.
Thanks for looking....Paul
