Double spring Swiss motor or parts Wanted

Post by flying500 »

I have looked everywhere but cannot locate a governor gear for the two spring motor on my Celeste Trench.
The problem is that the fibre gear has, as is usual, worn out.
I would appreciate any help or guidance.
Pictures attach of the worn gear and motor wanted.
Thank you.

Get some epoxy metal filler adhesive and fill in the worn gear after thorough cleaning with white spirit , and assuming you don't have a gear cutter lathe , cut the gear using a very fine needle file slow and laborious but ultimately successful, that's how clocks and watches were made :D
