Subject: RUNS GREAT Date: Mon, 21 Jan 2002 09:28:15 -0500 From: Michael.Forte@gd-ais.com Sometime last year I sent you my early '70s Ingraham watch. You cleaned it and put in a mainspring. When I got it back I noticed that it would lose 7-9 minutes a day necessitating frequent setting. I just wanted to let you know that the watch has really settled down and is very, very accurate. Over a 5 or 6 day span the watch loses only 1 minute. I think this is wonderful and I am enjoying daily use of my old friend. I was wondering how long the present new mainspring will last and given that they are getting rarer all the time, would it be a good idea to acquire a backup one now for a future replacement? Michael
