    Could be that all it needs is a cleaning, lubrication and adjustment, but this must be done by a watchmaker who understands antique pocket watches.

    thank you kind sir oh and i ruled out the balance staff because last night my room stayed at around 40 degrees and now the pocket watch is working at all angles so i think it must be the main spring and what you said because the main spring hasn't been replaced in 101 years
