    That sounds to me like a broken balance staff. I am not a watch expert but In most cases with this type of fault one of the pivots has broken on the balance staff and because it runs face down I would take a look at the bottom pivot. Balance staff replacement is not a job you will be wanting to start off with, might be worth putting this one away for a while a finding something that just needs a service?I am going to stop here as one of the watch guys here will be able to help you further.
