It looks terrific. Though i also like the black one a lot more.

That's a very unusual looking timegrapher as well.
I bought the Black Dial from a local boot sale also not working and very dirty for £10.00, the Time graph is a 1900, it may look a little different due to the low light where the timegraph is in my workroom

Many thanks and Best Wishes

Darren

A thread like this shows me how little I know.
For me it was only practising on scrap movements and then on pin pallet smiths and Ingersoll pocketwatches and then on the smiths and ingersoll watches themselves
before attempting jeweled watches and pocketwatches. But I still do not like to touch date display or autos as the date jumper srings drive me mad... Lol

Hi, I'm doing a similar restoration, but I'm just a beginner. I have a part that sprang out and I can't work out what it is and where it goes. Can you offer any advice / assistance??

It is a spacer which comes under the balance bridge.

I can't work it out, does it go on top of the pallet bridge, under the balance wheel? Or directly under the balance bridge above the spring?

Also, I notice in this photo he has 2 parts in this shape next to the balance for cleaning, I only have the one, am I missing a part?

I believe these are shims. While not the most elegant solution, I've found these are somewhat common in Soviet movements, presumably to enhance part alignment and reduce wear.

At least one of these shims would fit under the balance cock (sandwiched between the main plate and balance cock), but I'm not sure about the other. Are they exactly the same size/shape? If so, then I'd say two fit under the balance cock :)

Got it thanks, a search for shims showed me a picture. It sits directly under the balance cock as you said. I don't have the second one showed in the photos, I'm assuming my movement only has the one.
