Good day everybody Today I was sitting here debating on what to tackle ...well the first three photos are from an Ebay listing I won the other day. Watch didn't work, crystal was missing and hands had been broken off at the post. First thing was to tear the beast down and see what I had to deal with....okay, nothing seems to far out of whack. so tear into a touch farther....Yup, there's the problem....main spring drum had been messed with and wasn't seated in position correctly. Heck this far into the movement, tore down the remained and set pieces and parts in the denture cleaner tub and turned it on.
After that was done, started the reassembly process and serviced with synthetic oil as I went along. Came down to putting it back in the case.... but first needed to locate a set of hands and a crystal, the crystal wasn't to hard to locate...a set of Ingersoll "Whit" hands, that's a different story...so robbed a set of hands off era correct "Buck" and sat down and painted them white... pure entertainment for a blind old man... Well anyways, here's the end result...1934 "Blinking Eye" Big Bad Wolf & Three Little Pigs Ingersoll Pocket watch, in running order.
