    A company called MICROSET ACCESSORIES sell an Optical Hairspring Sensor kit for $50.00. It includes the optical sensor and a clear see through table the sensor mounts under to monitor the balance wheel.

    Tom,
    That is only for the sensor and the clear base. You still need the watch timing unit.

    Chris:

    I found their site nad I think they are in Finland. I don’t speak “Finlander” but when I pulled up the image of the vibrating tool, I saw the word “Protoyyppii” which I’ll bet means prototype.

    Here’s the link…

    Good luck.

    Chris I have the microset timer I use on clocks all the time. In fact I have 3 of them with the computer software. It is accurate as the day is long especially with the optical sensors. Now that I can see halfway decent I may get back into doing antique pocket watches again. If I do I will be getting this and the clamping watch sensor to go along with my newest microset 3. http://www.bmumford.com/mset/tech/hairsprings/springs.html

    I have known Bryan for years and in fact bought the first microset he put on the market. I bought a second on to go on service calls. It was a 2 and upgraded it to a three. My first one I don’t use much so bought another 3. Bryan is always there to help in anyway and generally has some great idea.
