    Hi Tempus,

    Nice to read you have started to work on a watch movement!


    it's isn't a race but a nice and relaxing learning process I think
    ,

    The click spring it's an essential part of the watch movement,stop the mainspring charge through the ratchet wheel allowing the mainspring power release,

    No worries about the missing,please let me know if your movement is similar o same to this:

    The Meccano factory was in Binns Rd, Wavertree in Liverpool, not far from where I grew up, and close to where my first ever job was after leaving school. Closed in 79.
