Re: Looking for a parts movement, gruen 411c

18kBPH, great information, thanks!
I found a parts movement on eBay for 13$ shipped, the seller said the balance was good when he shipped it, I'll know for sure in a few days, it should be worth having around for the other parts anyway.

Going to need a bigger workbench soon

I started a new job two years ago and I don't think I haven't had time to dig into a watch service since (other than a few simple repairs).
