I am sick to my stomach!

Last night I dropped the watch, the crystal came off as well as the minute hand, and I could not find the minute(large) hand.

Do you know where I can purchase a minute hand?

On the related, if one can be found, can anyone recommend a repair shop in the Philadelphia PA area?

Thanks SO much.

Not sure the size on that minute hand. Maybe afire can share some light on the size.

I did find some close matches. Nothing like getting a good snort of radium poking around in the tray.

Hands are 60/120. That's going from memory on a chart Mike posted way back on the old site, but I never forgot it and I'm pretty sure it's right.

Looool! How on earth did they do that. I lose coins and pens in my car, forever lost (or in the vacuum cleaner). Very Happy

I recently got a new washer and dryer and was certain that when I took the old ones out, there would be a trove of single socks. Not a one. The mystery continues...
