This is what happens...

The photo from my phone turned out pretty cool though!

In the end it was the escapement that was the original problem.

No, I think that's a your-pic-is-broken sort of I can't see ****
Well... I shall have to remedy that... It shows up for me...
Alright... does Ray have eyes?
Yes, but they don't work.

Your picture is fixed though
Lol, thanks!
Yeah, no fix for Rays eyes ... but I see your parts and pieces up there :( . It looks like some of the gears are actually broken. Did you drag it behind your car :p ???
Well... let me just say that I got a little impatient... It was a $40 purchase, broke after one week, and I just wanted to play around in the movement with my new watch tools. Parts would have not been worth the cost. Needed new escapement. And, if I'm honest, that repair was beyond my knowledge and skill!!
Whatta watch train wreck!!!!

This aughta be a challenge.

Lol. No challenge, I gave up! I'd say the Chinese movement one this battle! ;)
