Gentlemen, thanks for all the replies. I did get the watch fixed. I found that someone had changed the balance wheel. There are two balance wheels listed for the mod 1883 watch. I had another watch that was same model and the balance wheel was smaller. I installed the smaller balance wheel and that increased my speed. I was still off about two seconds. I removed two balance screws. Checked my time this morning after running overnight and it was in perfect time with the writst watch. I will see what I have when I get home tonight….but definitely have made progress with the watch…by the way it is running beautifully.
Thanks to all.
