    Hi David,
    I was going to move this post under it’s own topic of Locust Pocket Watch rather than under this Hamilton topic but I really don’t have much to suggest here for you. Locust was a trade name that Didisheim (Swiss) used for their watches being exported to the United States. As far as I know most parts like a barrel arbor would need to be swapped out of an old parts movement. You may get lucky and find someone with some new/old stock. You might check with http://www.dashto.com to see if he has something you can use. If you had the old mainspring it would be fairly easy to find one that is near the same dimensions. I’ll look around a bit to see if I can dig up some info on their movements for you and will let you know if I find anything. If I do I’ll move our posts and start a new thread.
