    Where can I find Tavannes / Cyma 370 Movement or Complete Balance

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for a Tavannes / Cyma 370 movement with a good, complete, working balance to swap over with the one in my watch. Mine has a balance staff that works but may not be the correct one (there are three listed staffs for the 370 movement). If i can find another movement with a good balance, or just the balance itself, my watchmaker can swap them over and he said it'll gain my watch an appreciable amount of timekeeping accuracy due to positional error in one position.

    If anyone can help, i'd be greatly appreciative.

    Nick.

    This is a picture of the movement in question. If you have a bunch of spare movements, please search through them and see if you have one of these! If so, let me know!

    I see its local also, that's very convenient. That'll save me on shipping and the exchange rate of the U.S. and UK stuff.

    As it`s a non runner though,i would contact the seller to make sure that the balance swings freely when shaken,and/or it has 370 stamped under the balance to be on the safe side,but i`m sure you would know this already.Hope you get it.

    P.s I`m absent for a few days and will not be able to reply to this thread.

    Have already contacted. If I win it and balance isn't right I'll clean it up and resell it and just get the balance staff swapped. Hopefully it'll be right. It should be.

    Thanks again for the find mate, appreciate it!

    Hi Nick,

    Sorry you are having issues with this watch!

    Im not sure, but you may find that some of the cyma/tavannes variations have the same balance set up.... i.e this one appears to have the same balance cock design, regulator, etc.

    good luck with it.
