    Finding replacement hairspring

    I'm new to all this so please excuse my ignorance. I am looking for a replacement hairspring for a watch mechanism, it's a Rone 877 17 jewel, it also has f555131 and VB written on the mechanism if that helps. I have no idea how I would go about finding one. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hello and welcome. You may want to ask in the Watchmaking subforum. The regulars there may have good ideas.

    I looked but could not find a reference to a Rone movement in the Ranfft database. Presumably it was made by one of the major movement makers like AS, Peseux, FHF, etc.

    Call a watch parts house like Ofrei. If you are planing to replace the spring have you done it before? If not one slip can turn it into a birds nest.
