I am new to watch repair and I am struggling with the re installation of the seconds hand on two different new movements I am installing. The movements are Harley Ronda 515.24H and Miyota/Citizen 2105. I can not successfully get the seconds hand shaft over the Pinion. I have a hand setting tool set but I a finding it impossible to get this .20mm shaft on the seconds hand onto the pinion. I have had no trouble with the GMT hand,Hour and minute hands on the Ronda or Hour & minute hand on the miyota. These watches are Invicta's (yes I know the feelings about them) but the repair estimate at Parsec Ent. was from $125 to $150 PER watch to fix. The movements were less than $12 ea. I figured these would be ideal to learn on and I like these watches. The Miyota is in a Caravelle by Bulova. Any help would be appreciated.
