More guts of Tim’s Swiss watch.
Wow, that is a very nice Fusee watch. Nice job getting that running again!
Did you have any issues with the click wheel on the fusee? Or, i mean the ratchet mechanism at the bottom of the fusee? I have an old English watch from 1865 which has a brass wheel at the bottom of the fusee that is used as the ratchet which is completely worn down (otherwise the movement runs).
YIKES!! I have had to make Fusee chain links for my dad’s restoration business back in the day.I also had to cut balance staffs out of raw stock on a lathe using an eye loop carbide gravers and micrometers ….As the restoration of museum pieces for horology are interesting and elaborate at times,i surely do not miss it…lol
