Gruen Guildsman

I couldn't agree more! Most of the guys I know here in the business don't know where to go for parts that are not immediately available via their normal parts supply shop. I dunno how many would be comfortable ordering a new part for an old Gruen given all the interchangeability even going through Jules. It's that time researching that you point out that is the barrier for those watchmakers that are computer literate.

I don't recall not sending parts with a repair job I send out. Being more than picky about it all, I don't want to chance it, nor do I want any markup of stuff that I already have sitting here unused Very Happy The mainsprings on Gruens are one in particular that I want to get right with all their brilliantly designed oddball widths. It may be overkill, but who cares, it's my underwater Gruen I'm pouring $$ into after all.

Good points Thomas. I'm interested in hearing the response when/if the watchmaker is given info on Jules or other parts sources.
