Watch did not run. When I wound it up I felt no resistance from the mainspring. I figured it must be a broken mainspring. I was surprised to find the mainspring was not broken. The inside end of the mainspring had uncurled so the hook on the barrel would slip out as it was winding. A little bending of the mainspring and all is good. 18 size, key wind and set, Currier, made around 1881. This watch also stars in 'Installing a to small crystal' and 'How I take apart a pocket watch, Illinois Currier' videos now playing.
