Figure 1 shows the torn suspension spring. The remaining spring and lower pendulum suspension mount were missing. Fig.2, 12 indicate the degree of oxidation on the ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Fig.10 shows the arbors being originally painted blue. Some smaller arbors were left unpainted and suffered a greater degree of rust damage. Fig. 7 shows the area where the arbor had been broken off. It took some time to design the correct profile of the lock/release arm which was attached to this arbor to control the remontoir recoil cycle. Fig. 3,4, shows the opposite end of the same arbor depicted in figure 7. Here a missing part was fitted over this arbor and held in place with a pin. A missing mount covering the shaded area was a mystery dealt with in the 'repair sessions' page. Fig. 9 shows the strike train. The remaining figures depict the movement as found.
