Thanks to all who responded to this thread. Thanks to Zig for finding a
source for an almost obsolete watch. They are getting harder and harder
to find.

Hi Tappers,


I think it was at the Rochester, New York AAPT meeting that someone
demonstrated impulse using a pocket watch with a main-spring movement.
They glued a small mirror on the glass and pointed a laser into the
mirror. The laser spot was projected from the mirror to the wall of the
lecture hall as the watch reacted to the main-spring movement. It was a
very nice demo. I am sorry to say that I don't remember who brought that
demo to the workshop, please forgive me for that oversight, but I would
like to know if that person would be willing to share a write-up of that
demo. Thanks in advance.

Joe
