Hi all,

I'm looking for the last wheel in the autowind train of a 710RSS. This is the wheel that meshes with the barrel to wind the watch. I have here in front of me an otherwise excellent 710RSS, but the wheel is spinning freely on its pinion (from manual winding damage?) instead of winding the mainspring.

Alternatively, if you've a good hand with a staking set, I could send the wheel to you. It appears otherwise undamaged, so a good candidate for repair.

I know, I know, I could go buy a whole parts movement to get one. And that's the last resort option. But I don't really wish to assemble an auto boneyard. My Verithin boneyard is large enough for me...

Is there a difference between a 710RSS and a 710SS ? I may have a spare 710SS here

Still here....

How many jewels?

There were two jewel counts for the 710 family - 17 and 25. I have a 17j. The 25j had this wheel jeweled, so probably not compatible. But otherwise it should work.
