Well, I’m glad to hear that the ringing isn’t too uncommon – I feel better now. I haven’t noticed a galloping sound and its keep really good time, running about 33 hours on a full wind. I was surprised at how good this one looked internally – very little wear on the pinions and the jewels were in good shape (for a change). It was just dirty and devoid of oil. I could probably have put the old mainspring back in, but following your training, I just went ahead and put in a new one.

I think I will start putting a mic and a Denison gauge on the old mainsprings to compare against the new spring and those data listed on the mainspring envelope – just to be safe that is.

Thanks for commenting.
Tom
