    Hello all,
    Currently working on an A.Reymond wristwatch. Replaced balance staff, but hairspring was too tight to go on. Rather than get out the lathe again, I tried to open the collet by using a screwdriver and my finger to hold it and as I pulled the screwdriver the spring came too dangit. Anyway, If you have a time machine handy I’d like a ride back a couple o hours to avoid making dumb mistake.

    If you have straightened hair springs before, I’d appreciate any advice on how to fix this one.

    If you have an A. Reymond parts watch I’d like to buy it or Balance complete or a hairspring…

    Hope your all well !!
