It has been a few moments, nice to see some familiar names. I am seeking a caliber 179. Specifically this

I am restoring  Gruen caliber 179. Below is my watch maker requests.

I still have a problem with Gruen 179 the watch still stopping the pĂ­vot of the escape wheel on dial side is rusty and worn out. Do you have by any chance a new wheel? It could solve the problem thank you!!!!

This is what I am looking for I would prefer a 179 movement in case we find another challenge.
