Elgin model 5

Recommended Posts

I've gone and brought another non runner from Ebay, I just couldn't turn it down.

It's a 16s size, I'm hoping someone will be able to help me with a balance staff for one. 

OK so it doesn't just need a staff, the hands are rubbish,  gold plated, the hands don't turn when the crown is pulled out,  the Crown is way too small.

But I like it, here hopefully is a picture of the movement,  it's a good picture, ( if it uploads ),, sorry I tried

Do you have any pictures of the front of the movement. If you get stuck, give me a shout.

Over the past year or so I have purchased so many "None Runners" - its like a Lucky Bag. Most of them are put in the cupboard and stay there :-(

I prefer the American pocket watches to Swiss - I find it very hard finding parts in the UK, maybe Im such a novice and just don't know where to look.

anyway I'll stop wingeing. I hope you find your parts and get it running - I love it when you can bring life back to an old pocket watch.
