Thomas Russell Pocket Watch Calibre ?

Recommended Posts

Got a Thomas Russell Pocket Watch with a broken Balance Shaft but has no Caliber Markings etc. Sent a Picture with the front of movement to see if it helps.

Obviously stripped down but also a broken screw thread need to sort !! trying to work how to remove, not sure if the stem it screws into can be undone

Hi, you can either use Vissin screw extractor fluid which you can warm up, or a screw extractor tool, which basically looks like a caliper measuring tool, the caliper locks into the top and bottom of the screw and you tighten the caliper then start to turn it to move the screw

As regards the "staff" you can either go for a donor movement or make a staff, unless you can look up the calibre and find a parts list for a Thomas Russell watch

I recently serviced a repeater Thomas Russell pocket watch and managed to get that one working, so old parts are out there.............

Thanks for that, seen Thomas Russell parts, movements on e-bay just getting right one, as no calibre marks on movement hard to get right part. Will keep on trying for stem, and look at one of tools mentioned.
