citizen of the United States, andresident of Waltham, in the I I county of 'Middlesex and f State ofuMass'achusetts, :have invented oertain new and usefulqImprovements in Balance-Stafi's for Watches, ofwhich the following isa specification. I I This invention has for its object: topmvide a watch balance staff which iscapable .of being installedin a watch movement more conveniently and with greater facility than heretofore,v

the difficulty'can be overcome by the simple expedient of reversing the staff. The dupli- "cate form of' the staff portions 12 enables the collet 22 to beengaged with the upper po r., I

"Byvaryin'gthei depth of the'recess 16 and the width of the i collar14, or both, the staff and collet canbe I; f I properly installed in any watch. The re' l versibility ofrthe staff practically doubles,

the -o'pportu'nity of fitting the sameztoan' J already completed watch, and is therefore especially useful in 'America'n and foreign machine-made watches.
