Anyone have a 115 balance wheel and hairspring that they are willing to part with? I'm trying to get this guy running again.

Is the hairspring really toast? Os is it a matter of broken pivots? Just curious?

All I know is based on hard work & writing by others. I can only aspire to augment this body of knowledge. If I am wrong it is because of my own failings. -me

It is the hairspring Jack. If someone had a compete balance movement I wanted to just drop that in instead of trying to swap the hairspring.

-ugh- and it's too bad the the 115 Balance Complete stands on its own with no interchangeability that I'm aware of
Best of luck in your search!

I have a staff if you need one.

Hey Jason, I have a complete and running 115 for sale. It has case, dial, hands, already cleaned, and ready to go. The case needs work, and you may want to get the dial redone.
