chaps,

    I've finally inherited my Grandads watch that his parents gave to him on the eve he went off to war in 1939....

Now,i'm having a few problems with it,when it winds up(now I've loosened the spring)the second hand will go when its face down with the glass on the table,but when I turn it the correct way around it stops altogether/

anyone have any ideas on fixing it so I can get to wear it?

cheers,Allan

Worn balance pivot?

Cracked, broken jewel?
