THIS EARLY SWISS MADE
THREE FINGER BRIDGE15 JEWEL
AS MOVEMENT WAS THOROUGHLY
OVERHAULED & SERVICED & TIMED

NEW HAIR SPRING
NEW MAIN SPRING
CLEANED POLISHED LUBRICATED TIMED

THREE WEEKS LATER, THE WATCH STOPPED RUNNING

IMG_4819.JPG (37230 bytes)

AFTER TEARING DOWN THE WATCH AGAIN
WE SET OUT TO FIND THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM

IMG_4808.JPG (36199 bytes)

WE SET UP A COLLECTION DISH FOR PARTS

IMG_4816.JPG (48547 bytes)

WE REALIZED THAT THE NEW MAIN SPRING WAS BINDING IN THE BARREL
THE PROBLEM IS THAT THERE ARE NO MAIN SPRINGS TO BE HAD
THAT IS --MAIN SPRINGS FOR TRENCH WATCHES
MOST TRENCH WATCHES REQUIRE ADAPTED CUSTOM MAIN SPRINGS
YOU HAVE TO FIND ONE CLOSE AND CUSTOMIZE IT

IMG_4821.JPG (33263 bytes)

THE PROBLEM WAS THAT THIS TRENCH WATCH SPRING BARREL EXPANDED
DUE TO THE NEW MAIN SPRING.

THE SPRING WE SELECTED WORKED PERFECTLY
BUT  A BULGE DEVELOPING FROM AN EXISTING
MICROSCOPIC FLAW IN THE BARREL. PRETTY SIMPLE.

ONCE IT EXPANDED JUST A SMALL AMOUNT
THE GEAR/TINES ABOVE  PUSHED AGAINST THE
CENTER WHEEL AND IT STOPPED THE WATCH.

IMG_4823.JPG (40286 bytes)

IT TOOK SEVERAL WEEKS & 165.00
TO FIND SEVERAL NON-RUNNING TRENCH WATCHES WITH SAME
MOVEMENT FOR THE CORRECT BARREL AS WELL
AS PARTS FOR THE FUTURE IN CASE WARRANTY
WORK IS EVER REQUIRED. THE PARTS WILL BE
STORED IN THE CASE IF OUR PATRON REQUIRES
WARRANTY WORK IN THE FUTURE
WE WILL HAVE THEM. BUT WE WILL REBUILD THE PARTS
WATCH WITH DAMAGED BARREL --THAT WE REPAIRED --
AND STORE IT COMPLETELY ASSEMBLED.

NOTE: THE REPAIR MAY HOLD UP OVER TIME. BUIT WE WILL REPLACE IT
SO IT IS NOW A STORAGE MOVEMENT

I DECIDED TO BEGIN BY DISASSEMBLING
BOTH WATCH MOVEMENTS
PARTS. PARTS. PARTS

IMG_4820.JPG (38346 bytes)

THIS GILDED VERSION IS IDENTICAL IN EVERY WAY
NOTICE THE "AS"MOVEMENT MANUFACTURE HALLMARK

IMG_4814.JPG (54377 bytes)

CLEAN AND READY TO GRAB THE MAIN SPRING BARREL
WE STILL HAVE TO FIND  THE MAIN SPRING
THE MAIN SPRING IS BAD IN THIS

IMG_4825.JPG (46710 bytes)

HERE WE HAVE CHANGED BARRELS OUT,
THE REPAIRED BARREL IN THE RIGHT
ORIGINAL BARREL PLACED IN THE ONE AT LEFT
WE PLACED THE NEW SPRING IN RIGHT
AND A TESTING SPRING IN THE LEFT

IMG_4827.JPG (46213 bytes)

BOTH ARE KEEPING TIME BUT IT WILL BE TWO WEEKS BEFORE
I RECEIVE CORRECT SPRINGS CUSTOMIZE THEM
THEN TEST THEM

  IN FACT
OUR COST IS ANOTHER ADDITIONAL 100.00.
OF COURSE ALL OF THESE COSTS AND LABOR ARE
AT NO CHARGE TO OUR PATRON
