ABOUT ITEM DESCRIPTIONS

I first started writing watch parts lists in 1981.  I try to be critical in my evaluations so as to avoid disappointments or the bother of returns.  I try to follow this format:

Item number
Manufacturer
Size - standard sizes use 'S' for size, millimeter(mm) measurements are the diameter of the main center body of the case
Jewels - if unmarked I will state the minimum with a + if I think there might be more
OF or HC - open face or hunting
LS or PS - lever set or pendant set
SS or DS - single sunk or double sunk
Dial condition - nothing said, dial is good porcelain.  HL, has a hairline or two, not too bad.  Several HL, its a bit worse.  Bad dial, speaks for itself.  A chip is just that, a flake is a little piece off the edge such that no copper shows.
Serial number
General description - will mostly be a listing of damage and missing pieces, I try my best not to miss anything, will be more complete and critical on an expensive piece than on a lower priced item.  If the balance staff is broken or there is some other major problem I usually won't check the mainspring.  If I say the balance staff is broken, it could be that a jewel is broken and the balance is OK– I don’t take them apart to check.  Running means running with pretty good motion to the balance, but please assume you will need to clean.
