Another restoration...

Today's pocket watch restoration.  New mainspring and case for an 18 size Elgin lever set movement made in 1891.  Still need to track down an hour hand for it.  89,97,76,0,B

Found a complete set of hands on eBay - 20 bucks. Only need the hour hand but beggars can't be choosers when it comes to 100 year old pocket watches.

You could probably fix my mother's Bulova wrist watch, circa 1950. But as I could find only one place to do it, I tried that, and it ran for a while..but it stopped. I hardened my heart and sold it. Time passes. Whether you have the right hands to install or not.
