Waltham vintage pocket watch only runs flat?
HELP! My heirloom waltham watch only runs while flat (and sometimes not even) I can't afford to take it to a watch shop, is there anything I can do?

It needs to be adjusted by a professional. If you open the back and poke around you'll basically destroy it. The watch mechanism is very delicate and needs to be rebalanced. Only a skiled watch repair place can do a proper job. Don't do it yourself.
I own a 115 year old Waltham and never, ever try to fix it myself. It's too valuable.
