Dearest Amadeus,

As soon as I am able to get the back off of the watch I have, and I believe it is the one you need, then I will definitely let you know. A point to ponder, and something to chew on: Most of these autos were the same movement (25 jewels) and the only difference on many of these, was the dial, and month configuration. This could be cut (month/date) and stamped anywhere on the dial, and had multiple types of hands and dial colors. However, the movements were pretty much the same. Jack made mention of Elgin, Waltham, Gruen, Bulova all using AS movmements.....well, they did, and yes, the culprit was almost assuredly the counterbalance, or oscillating pendulum, as some like to refer it too. I have a couple of these with the very issue Jack refers to.........he is correct! Again, I am having difficulty taking the back off as I cut the thumb off at the distal joint 3-4 months ago, and have lost strength. Yes, I do clocks as well, but that's a whole other sea monster to tame. Ahh, thumb is much better, but still numb and in some areas.

People you thought were your best friends will stab you in the back to your face!

Love them anyway.
