Hi all. I'm looking for the circled hammer that resets the timer. The one that I have has been fiddled with and it doesn't reset to 0. Anybody have this part? Thanks in advance

Maybe you already know this, but there's currently somebody selling on eBay an entire pile of partial Chronotimer movements and cases. I think I see the part you're looking for among the loose bits. Maybe see if he'd separate that one part from the rest of the pile. Worth an inquiry, I would think.

I had missed that auction somehow. Thank you for pointing it out to me, I agree that it is worth asking.

I knew a guy who knew a guy, and he had the part I needed. Watch is now back in my possession and working perfectly.

Wanted to add to this thread for completeness sake. Because of a miscommunication with my watchmaker I originally thought I needed the hammer spring (left) and operating lever spring (right). I really needed the hammer listed above.
