Be careful to bid on a running E-watch: Electromagnetic driven balances do not stop by themselves if the jewel dried out. Because any friction is compensated by additional force of the electrical control curcuit,  it is most likely, that balance-staffs are seriously damaged at pivot, unless they run strong. There may be allready an axial distance of the staff-ends to the covering jewels of the (inca-)blocks. This leads to the effect, that a tilting of the turning-axis to vertical may slow or stop the balance, because the rim of the thick part of the balance staff touches the jewel.
