It does Chris. I have a spread sheet on the watches I have with serial #’s, grade, size, jewels, mainspring, balance staff and year. I thought I read where a 17J watch took a 2205 MS so will have to do a little more research.

So I have a chance to get a Swigart’s book on Illustrated Manual of American Watch Movements. I am confused but hey that is nothing new but would this be a better book for what I am doing with working on just American Antique PW’s or would the Bestfit be better? If I remember I think the bestfit deals more with swiss watches, etc. Or do I bite the bullet and get both Swigarts and the 111 & 111A?

Thanks again for the help? Maybe I should just stick with clocks. 😆
