hands

  1. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi! I’m restoring a Sky Chief that has seen better days. The black dial has been poorly over-painted (don’t know who would’ve butchered this thing, but it’s bad) and the skeleton hands are bent. So, I’m looking for a replacement set of hands (if still radium lumed, that’s ok, as I’m going to...

    Why do some of the chronos have Sinn style sword hands, with the base blacked out, as opposed to fully lumed? Is that an older style?

    I have a Seiko 5 with 6309 movement, it's missing seconds hand, I found a busted seiko sportsman with 6602 movement but exact same hand. I am wondering if it will fit.

    Hi all! I hope this post provides something of interest to you lovers of haute-horology! Something that has become my new obsession in watchmaking is watch hands, specifically in high-end watches - so I thought I'd collate some pictures and share some of the most impressive findings! Lets...

    I've been looking at the Orient Bambino V4 for quite a while now but I ​hate​ the hands on the watch. The hours and minutes hands are too thin and the seconds hand has an ugly red tip to it. I did some research and I can't seem to find the sizes for the hands on the Orient F6724 movement...

    I'm looking for a Mitsukoshi dial and hands for my 1861-powered Speedmaster Pro. Cheers!
  7. Rolex & Tudor
    When I checked the watch before purchase, btw the watch is brand new but sold to me at a reasonable price. All the hands alignment are ok and 6 o'clock forms a almost perfect straight line. Started running in the watch abit and tested the crown functions and set up the time a few times. Noticed...

    I've got a couple of Parnis sterile dialled GMT Master style watches and I'm thinking of changing the hands and bezel insert on one of them as never been a fan of mercedes hands. Hands I'm thinking of sword or snowflake hands and for the bezel insert either a dull green or blue. I'm also...

  11. Tissot
    As much as I love the retro styling of the Visodate and the super cool Tissot logo, I always found the hands a bit of a shortcoming... Literally. So I finally decided to replace them with something more fitting. It is hard to find dauphine style hands in >12 mm length, but I finally did at Otto...
  12. Breitling
    Hey everyone, I have a question regarding Breitling hands. Is it true that Breitling hands are arbor pressed so that when they are removed they cannot be put back on? Hence, every time a Breitling is serviced, new hands will be added. :think: I am asking because when I sent my Navitimer...

    Looking for a set of hour and minute hands with creamy tritium for my 1985 Speedmaster. I have a chrono sweep and sub dial hands, so primarily looking for hour and minute hands but a complete set might be interesting too. Regards, Tomas

    Aesthetically I am enamored with the elegant and purposeful hands found on most F.P. Journe pieces. Similar to this or Beautiful. Are there any watches that have similarly replicated these hands? Particularly more affordable pieces? Any suggestions? Not looking for replica watches, but...
  17. Omega
    Hey all, Looking for some thoughts and opinions on the following scenario. I recently had my Speedmaster returned from service (Omega in T.O.). Everything looks fine; After recommending a service dial and hands swap, Omega returned my original dial and hands to me, which I intend to have...

    hi all, this is my first post here. i just started reading about seiko mods and fell in love with some (especially the seiko smiths w10 mod, see attached photo). so i think it's time for me to start my first mod. it will be based on the military seiko snk (SNK805K2, 7S26C movement, see...
  19. Seiko
    After applying hands to a 7S26, I'm failing to understand how you can hold the movement, depress the "crown tab", and pull the crown out with only 2 hands. I know I can always hold the movement and depress the crown tab while another person pulls the crown, but is there a way to do this solo...
  20. Watchmaking
    Do you think it is OK for a minute hand to have a little backlash (maybe a quarter or a third of a minute point) in a quartz watch? I mean not the backlash observed in any and all of the watches when adjusting time forward and backward, but the minute hand bouncing around under its own weight...
