    Westclox Yankee Diagram Or? Help Please

    I am in the midst of rebuilding a Westclox Yankee pocket watch and have it all back together except for 1 part. I am using it as a beginner project. I have scoured the internet for a diagram of this watch and cannot find anything. Does anybody have any ideas? It does not have to be a Yankee, it just has to have a similar movement. Any Help is VERY much appreciated!

    I've got several ideas for you, actually.
    If you don't already have a copy, try to get Henry Fried's The Watch Repairer's Manual and/or Donald DeCarle's Practical Watch Repairing. While they don't specifically address Westclox movements, there's a wealth of info in each.
    Both are readily available used and sometimes new.
    The best thing to do when taking apart an unfamiliar movement is to take good clear close-up pics or at least draw diagrams or jot down some notes.
    These will help when memory fails to serve you.
    This site has also a watch repair forum, where your repair questions should be posted.
    It is located here:

    I'm not familiar with Westclox pocket watches, so I can only hope that this is a similar enough movement:

    You're wise to be starting with inexpensive watches.
    Mistakes are inevitable, but are much less painful on watches that aren't highly prized.

    Westclox's weren't really designed to be repaired, so I doubt you'll find documents. Maybe post a picture of where you're at, and someone can help? If nothing else, I've got a drawer full of old dollar watches that I can partially disassemble to get you a picture of what you need.
