I just took apart a Waltham 18s 1883 for servicing and found that someone put in a new jewel without a brass fitting, took something like a small screw driver and chisled/moved metal from the plate out over the jewel in order to apparently hold it in place! Now, I guess I’ll need to remove the thing and see if there’s enough plate thicknes left to put in a fitted jewel. If not, then I guess I will need to ream/drill out the hole and cutom fit a brass fitiing/jewel into the hole.
Any ideas? Has anyone ever seen this before?
