Help with 18S Waltham 21jewel Riverside Mainspring Barrel

Dear Waltham Lovers,

Has anyone replaced a mainspring on an 18S Waltham 21 J "Riverside" pocket watch.

The barrel doesn't appear to be pry off. Could it be threaded?

Any advice would be most appreciated.

Re: Watch glass replacement needed

If you have a caliber and can provide the dimensions, I probably have one on hand. I seem to have loads of women's rectangular glass crystals, and very little need for them, so please advise.

Kind regards,

Dana

Re: Hamilton Stanley

Beautiful example, well photographed.

I'm not a collector of Hamiltons, but similar vintage Illinois.

I can't seem to find a source for not tapered straps, such as the lovely one in this photo.

Was it recently made or a vintage NOS find?

Any help would be much appreciated.
