    Attached are pictures of a Panerai 0048 and a Certina DS Podium. Both use a Valjoux 7750 movement (the Panerai with the chronograph removed). The Panerai was produced in 2003, the Certina in 2006, so just a few years apart. Yet there is a marked difference in the state of the hands. The...

    So someone pointed me to this article: Why are Watches Always Set to 10:10? Researchers Reveal the Subliminal Reason describing a switch from 8:20 to 10:10 in marketing photos, and the psychological reason. Here are my thoughts on the matter. The research doesn't answer the question in the...

    I've recently purchased and recieved a handwind Merkur (Seizenn) "Dirty Dozen" homage watch from AliExpress and have a question regarding the subseconds hand at the 6 o'clock. It appears to be atleast 2mm too short from reaching the outer dial ring. I would like to replace the hand with a longer...

    Hi all, I just purchased this vintage IWC. It looks to be a cal. 89 and appears to be in good shape. It’s oversized for the period at 37mm. However, I’m almost certain that the seconds hand has been replaced. I was wondering what the best way to source an original seconds would be, and...

    I would like to make a watch with a hangzhou 6460gmt movement, I understand the sate wheel out of the factor is to line up with rolex date window position dails not ETA position dails, I understand I can't just change out the date wheel as it would sit too low but does anyone know where I could...

    Hi guys! I'm doing some mods on this 38mm Invicta Pro Diver Quartz model: 8932OB Amazon Link! The BIG issue I'm having is hands to buy that will fit a Quartz movement for the above watch and what size? Are all Quartz movement hand sizes the same? Can I buy them on Aliexpress and if so what...
  9. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi Everybody! I have a beautiful and nicely working Burlington Special pocket watch. Model 5, grade 174, 19 jewels, made in 1908. Unfortunately the hands of the watch are not in the best shape. Does anybody know where I could find a set of hands for this model? Preferably old new stock but I'd...

    Hi all, The lume on my 5H26-7A00 has faded to useless. I would happily buy a new dial, but haven't found one. The alternative for me whilst continuing the search is a home re-lume. This is a shame since my current dial is close to perfect except for the lume. Some dimensionally similar dials are...

    Hello! As this is my first post, I'd like to say hello to all of you! :) I've been reading the forum for a while now, and I've found out it's a safe friendly place for Chinese specials lovers. As my journey with watches progresses I decided to learn more about modding. I've chosen Tevise diver...

    I am a novice watchmaker/hack, but learning. I would like to paint the seconds hand on my Sinn 556A red, thus making it an AR. Having never done any dial, hand painting, im looking for suggestions on the best type/brand of paint (fire engine red or similar) to use for this application. Any...
  13. 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!

    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...
