Part 2 of the assembly procedure is covered in this section. Here we will be putting the pallet fork, pallet assembly, re-assemble the balance system, and insert it into the watch
Again, during this process, we examine all the parts as we put them back together, and make any adjustments that need to be made.
One of the most important parts of a watch, is the balance wheel and hairspring. You’ll see how delicate these parts are as we proceed through this operation. Pay attention and if you’re assembling your own watch, make sure you move with care and ease on the parts as they are often damaged from inexperience.
