You know I have only worked on a few models of wristwatches. Bulova, Hamilton, Puw movement, Gruen, AS movement and Omega and the only time I have seen that type of spring is in that link I posted. It took me a minute or two just to remember the movement that had something similar to what you were describing. I will also say that every mechanical non automatic wristwatch I have ever worked on has been fully wound up. Of course that means mainspring isn’t broken. If all those watches you have are similar and all have that sort of spring they may be in the same family which means parts could interchange. One thing you could do is determine type of movements you have then go back to home page of link I posted and type in movement in his search bar and he will list every movement in that particular family. If they are related then you could have a built in supply of spare parts.
